Frances Wadsworth Jones is a London-based Fine Jewellery designer with a commitment to quality and originality. After completing her degree in Silversmithing and Jewellery at Glasgow School of Art, Frances returned to London to study at the Royal College of Art. Graduating with both the prestigious CONRAN Foundation Award and the International Marzee Graduation Prize, Frances went on to found her eponymous brand in 2008. Frances has become known for her playfully conceptual and provocative style as seen in her ‘Thieves’ collection combining traditional forms with a surreal twist.
Frances has worked extensively with contemporary jewellery galleries, the likes of Lesley Craze, Flow and Gallery Marzee, and participated in leading fairs such as Goldsmiths Fair, Collect, and Schmuck. Featured in Thames Hudson publication ‘The New Jewellers’ and under the radar of leading press such as British Vogue, ELLE, Frances was selected in 2014 as one of the most ‘exciting, imaginative and boundary pushing jewellers working in the capital’.
We are delighted to feature Frances Wadsworth Jones as part of our Rock Vault Designers initiative to support emerging designers at La Maison Couture, as she seeks to find some comic relief in the serious world of fine jewellery.
