Joan North Who knows what drives people to create new things?
For me, it’s the thrill of bringing something to life, falling in love with new beauty, and the affirmation that I can actually move from thought to action.
I love working with metal;
you could call me
I love color, texture and shapes that come from kumihimo braiding, wire weaving, and stone setting. Nudging opposites to live together characterizes my jewelry work.
Making as much of a piece as I can without using manufactured items makes me feel like a pioneer, adventuring into artistry.
