Come check out Joanna1 Jewelry this First Friday, July 3rd, on Bridge Street, starting @ 5:30PM, across from the Main Stage, corner of Bridge & Main. From the Joanna1 website:
Joanna1 is the product of many years of education, hard work & life experience. Building upon an eclectic art-based background in illustration, computer art and art instruction, I have designed and created a unique line of jewelry. My interest in making usable, wearable art led me to explore the use of precious metal clay as a medium.
Working primarily with silver PMC I produced a line of jewelry that is high quality yet casual. My work is inspired by our natural environment as well as human spirituality. In a fast-paced age where so much is mass produced, I want to stress the value in the sanctity of the original. Each piece of jewelry is designed and hand-crafted by me, so no two pieces are identical. I let what I would like to wear dictate my designs. I extend my love for the art-making process to others through my jewelry.
My goal is to get the message out that one must do what they love and love what they do. Inner peace comes from within...but why not start with an inspiring piece of jewelry?
