Mojocreations - now in miniature

Stainless steel artist, Jo Wooler of mojocreations, has entered the jewellery market following resounding interest in response to some one-off pieces she made for a client’s daughter.

'Whilst I was initially hesitant as it is incredibly difficult to work with stainless steel on such a small scale, I decided to try,' she explains. 'If people want a piece of mojocreations, but can’t afford or accommodate a large piece, or if they want it for a gift, jewellery is another great part of the mojocreations story.'

Now mojowearable art is available to all – miniature mojocreations that can be worn as neck pieces, earrings, bracelets, rings and even wine glass decorations!

'People who love my work, are looking for something smaller and accessible for gifts and to carry with them. It’s totally new and innovative. I never thought I would do this, but it’s quite exciting to be going down this miniature road. I am getting fabulous feedback from people who have followed my work for years and it is opening up my style to a new market as well.'

As well as being on display on private yachts, in hotels, yacht clubs and residences the world over, Jo's work has wowed the marine industry. Her sculpture '360 Degrees' was accepted by the Jury of the 42nd Salon de la Marine and featured in an exhibition of the living marine at the National Maritime Museum in Paris, France, in early 2012. In 2009 her magnificent Lion Fish was selected for the same exhibition and was sold to a private buyer.

Jo also has work in the Majlis Gallery in Dubai, and in the Fort Lauderdale showroom of Evolution Yachts Worldwide in Florida, US, as well as selected prestige galleries throughout Australia.



This Saturday 28 April from 6 to 8pm Jo will be at the Art Factory Gallery, 84 Merivale St, South Brisbane showcasing a selection of wearable art pieces in conjunction with Artists Afloat.
