Spinel - by Jo Mc Designs

Jo Mc Designs is a small business based in Kondinin in the Wheatbelt region of Western Australia. It was founded in late 2017 by self taught artist Jo McCubbing. Jo's collection of designs is named Spinel after one of the August birth stones. This precious gem stone can be found in a range of dazzling colours from deep reds, pinks, greens, black and blues. It reportedly has calming and healing​ properties.  

Jo's love of nature, plants, Australian landscapes and environmental patterns are reflected in her vibrant paintings and designs. Her works are unique and original limited prints. Painting with acrylics and inks has been a healing process after what Jo refers to as 'burn out', but was in reality years of living with anxiety. Her use of vibrant colours coined the phrase 'adding colour to your life'.

The designs are digitally printed in Australia onto quality fabrics. They are machine sewn and packed personally by Jo. At times if stock is low, orders may take 2-3 weeks from time of order, to production and shipping. Please be patient as this allows the necessary time for your piece to be lovingly created.

These handcrafted scarves and wraps are lovingly created in Australia and Jo's designs accessorize and add colourful luxury to your life.
