The Story of the Piece

‘If I be waspish, best beware my sting’ Katherine, The Taming of The Shrew.

The perfect bangle for anyone that’s had enough of being cast as the shrew. With a hand-crafted silver screw pierced through a single freshwater pearl, it’s sure to make you feel tough as nails when you’re speaking out of turn.

Also available in 18 karat gold vermeil.

Every piece of Motley jewellery comes beautifully packaged and gift-ready, with its own free travel pouch and polishing cloth (whether that gift's for someone else, or for you).

About the designer

Frances Wadsworth Jones

Frances Wadsworth Jones, or FWJ to the initiated, is a British Jeweller and Royal College of Art graduate. Frances lives in London, where she runs her design studio. She’s known for combining traditional craftsmanship techniques with subversive design.

The Screw You collection is a not-so-subtle rejection of the prim and proper pearls of twinsets gone by. We’d say her first Motley collection (and first time outside of high luxury) hits the nail on the head.
