Josie Wickes is a Jeweller who is currently exploring fluid mediums such as metal clays and lost wax to create a range of wearable jewellery. Her work is inspired by miniature details in nature and traditional folk crafts but always with a modern twist.
Josie graduated from The University of Brighton where she studied 3D crafts in Woods, Metals, Ceramics and Plastics. She then went on to qualify as an Art Teacher, working in secondary schools for a number of years before leaving the profession to develop her own work.
Josie frequently collaborates with other local artists making clothing and accessories – her latest range of folk-craft inspired jewellery especially for Weven can be found either in store or online at Weven.
