Jodie Anna Jewellery

Jodie Anna is inspired by childhood memories. Fascinated by how memories are often triggered by images, she uses her jewellery to take us all back in time to long hot summers and days at the seaside, so we can smile and accessorise amazingly at the same time.

Working from her home studio in West Yorkshire, Jodie Anna begins all her designs with an illustration, which she then scans in and sharpens up in Photoshop. She adds the gorgeous vintage patterns and prints the designs on to shrink plastic. The final step is to heat-shrink the images to create her beautiful wearable nostalgia.

Featuring umbrellas, cupcakes, bunting, teapots and robins, Jodie Anna’s designs are both sweet and sophisticated. She manages to tap right in to the idealised image of Britain that we all remember from when we were kids (as well as being bang on trend in terms of her vintage inspiration) and reminds us that it’s OK to have a bit of fun once in a while, like we did in childhood.

About Georgie Beardmore

I’m Georgie, a Creative Writing masters student at the University of Sheffield. As might be expected from someone who studies creative writing, I love writing (I write a lot -seriously, a lot), and write a variety of fiction and non-fiction things for various online and printed publications. As well as fiction, I most enjoy writing about music, the arts and student living, but I've also written things about living abroad, travel and local projects and events, as well as waffling about whatever takes my fancy on my blog. I am also heavily involved in student radio; I've been part of Forge Radio (the University of Sheffield's student radio station) for nearly four years now, helping run the station over the last two first as Secretary and then as Assistant Station Manager. Every week I present my own weekly specialist folk music show 'What The Folk?' (the show is as pun-filled as its name would suggest), on which I aim to promote new and exciting folk musicians from across the UK, and this year I've also been a part of organising some gigs as part of 'Forge Presents...', Forge Radio's series of live music events. I'm incredibly passionate about both music and the arts, and so am really excited to be part of the Born In Britain campaign and the opportunity to showcase the wealth of talent both Sheffield and the UK has to offer.
