Joanna Lovett Sterling
The west coast of British Columbia Canada has always been my home and I have been involved in jewelry making for most of my life. As my work progresses and evolves, I have become increasingly focused on the world around me. My pieces capture both my love of nature and of the materials I work with.
As I design each piece, I think not only of the objects and experiences that inspired the design, but also of the person who will own and wear it. The soft-textured shapes are intended to be both universal and unique. My hope is that each one will be beautiful to look at, delightful to wear and will create personal connections for you.
Committed to my craft all of my pieces are handmade locally using green practices including the use of a high percentage of re-claimed and re-refined silver and karat gold.
This photo was taken of me while I was spending a spring in Italy. As always I was wearing my traveling-starfish locket, it really does help keep me focused in the moment. For this moment I was staying at a an argriturismo called -Italy farm stay-a little piece of heaven located in Dozza a hilltown just outside of Bologna.
