Joanna began her jewellery training working alongside European masters and gained her formal education at the Vancouver School of Art and Design. She continues to update her skills by attending conferences and courses. Joanna’s work is exhibited in more than 50 galleries throughout North America.
Joanna utilizes Sterling Silver, 14k Gold and Vermeil. A quality anti-tarnish silver alloy helps with tarnish resistance and also results in finer details. The vermeil is a heavy layer of 24k gold on sterling silver. All pieces are made locally, using green practices with a high percentage of re-claimed and re-refined silver and karat gold.
Care for your jewellery:
To help prevent your silver jewellery from tarnishing, store in an airtight container such as a zip bag. For cleaning the white
finished pieces, scrub with a thick paste of baking soda, water and a mild soap. Follow up with a good rinse. Ultrasonic cleaners also work well. A final rub with a jewellery polishing cloth will revive the original sparkle to surfaces and chains. For the blackened silver pieces and the vermeil just wash lightly with soap and water.
