Jo Thorne Tiaras

She has absorbed and distilled diverse influences, from Islamic arabesque art to masters such as Lalique, the art deco and nouveau movements, and the costume jewellery of Chanel. Her epiphany as a designer came when she discovered an affinity for the scale and aesthetic challenge of the fine hair adornment: a neglected classic, and a statement every bit as powerful as a fine necklace or brooch.

Jo is now pioneering the rediscovery of this forgotten icon of jewellery design, driven by a passionate belief that these fabulous statements should be liberated from obscurity and restored to their rightful inheritance as precious pieces - truly iconic and feminine, and gracing the most prestigious of events.
