MOTLEY DESIGNER

Frances Wadsworth Jones

Women are often told what it is to be feminine, so combining a pearl with a traditionally masculine motif like a piece of hardware seemed like a way of challenging that. To screw through a pearl seemed like a suitably irreverent gesture.

Frances Wadsworth Jones, or FWJ to the initiated, is a British Jeweller and Royal College of Art graduate. Frances lives in London, where she runs her design studio. She’s known for combining traditional craftsmanship techniques with subversive design.

The Screw You collection is a not-so-subtle rejection of the prim and proper pearls of twinsets gone by. We’d say her first Motley collection (and first time outside of high luxury) hits the nail on the head.
