born in tokyo and raised between spain and japan, joanna always loved creating things with her hands.
it was in new york, where she moved to attend nyu that she discovered metalsmithing and completely fell in love with the process of making delicate pieces of jewelry using beautiful materials.
after trying out the corporate world in her early 20’s, joanna launched her collection and received her first order from barney’s new york from a collection of only eight pieces. she continued to develop her line and received her gemology degree from GIA, to extend her knowledge in precious stones and diamonds.
she makes every piece of jewelry by hand, thoroughly enjoying the process of bringing metal to wearable form, splitting her time between nyc and philadelphia where she now resides.
