Joanne’s Jewels began as a hobby fueled by a lifelong passion for jewelry. She is influenced by her love for the colors of the sea, which she utilizes often in her Chain Maille pieces. She also incorporates sea glass, blown glass, pearls and Swarovski crystals in her designs.
Chain Maille is the art of hand-weaving scales and rings of sterling silver, gold-filled rings, niobium, bright and anodized aluminum, stainless steel, among others into beautiful necklaces, bracelets, earrings, and accessories. Swarovski crystals, pearls, and other embellishments are sometimes worked into the designs. There is a myriad of documented designs upon which to build one’s own special pieces-the only limit is one’s imagination. Joanne enjoys working with customers to create their own, one-of-a-kind customized jewelry.
