Rebellious, edgy and inimitable, Josie Chen’s range of accessories were first created in 2010 by Joanne Swift. Originally from the UK, Joanne traveled around the world but instantly fell in love with Asia. After deciding to study fine arts and textile design in Japan, she finally settled in Shanghai. Then, in 2010, Joanne was asked by friends to design a few jewelry pieces for a UK collection. Her unique talent for fusing feminine designs with an industrial edge meant that the Josie Chen Range quickly became very successful and still continues to grow from strength to strength. Each handmade piece is designed with inspiration from diverse cultures, music, art and fashion, whilst remaining true to the brand’s defiant, rock –chick attitude that reflects the confidence and style of today’s independent women and men.
