Frances Wadsworth-Jones

A love of the paradoxical and a fascination with the miniature are the driving forces behind Frances’ creations. Through painstaking attention to the smallest details, she fashions pieces to surprise and delight the inquisitive eye - minute worlds that you can wear on your finger or your jacket.
At first glance, her ‘Workers’ collection appears to be like much conventional ‘high street’ jewellery. However, look closer and the carefully constructed illusion of mundane mass production reveals itself to be intricately hand-crafted jewellery, formed entirely by tiny ants - surreal narrative pieces that, playing on the insects’ behaviour, seem to construct themselves.
Frances got a Distinction for her Masters in Goldsmithing, Silversmithing and Jewellery at the Royal College of Art in 2008. She lives and works in London and is collected and exhibited internationally.
