About Joy Smith
Communion - noun. The act of sharing one's thoughts and emotions with another or others; intimate converse
I have been sculpting jewelry for over 10 years. I have always loved art since I was a child. I studied some art history in college and dabbled in painting and drawing. My calling for jewelry design came when I worked at an art gallery and realized that I wanted to be the artist. After working in a gallery, I decided it was time to tap into my own artistic side. I started taking lost-wax carving classes at night and I was hooked! I loved the idea of being able to sculpt anything I wanted.
My inspiration comes from nature and the mystery behind the veil of life. This is a feeling I try to capture with my designs. When I give my attention to the life around me inspiration follows. I love ritual and symbolism. I find my inspiration communing with the spirit in nature, animals and people. I love to make jewelry that carries an energy of inner-strength and contains the power from the design or the stones I set into them.
I keep my creative fire going by connecting to people and their stories.
I feel souls who wear my jewelry have a strong sense of self and portray that in their style. They consist of beings who have a penchant for art, travel and the spirit of life. These souls accentuate their look with conversational pieces of jewelry. The Communion wearer is a lover and collector of jewelry, who connects emotionally to the pieces they buy.
I feel my brand empowers strength with feminine elegance. It is modern vintage with a touch of bohemian flair.
I meditate before creating my designs and allow myself to be used as a creative vessel. All pieces are ethically sourced made from recycled gold, slightly one-of-a-kind and unique.
Love, Joy Smith
