Handcrafted Jewelry Photo Gallery is a collection of photos of my cast and/or fabricated original jewelry designs in 14k yellow gold or sterling silver between the years 1975 and 2012. Some of the pieces won awards in juried competitions; some of them were published as step by steps in various international trade magazines: Jewelry Artist, Wire Jewelry, Step-by-Step Jewelry, Lapidary Journal….
Over the years, Joyce’s jewelry work has been included in juried gallery shows throughout Arizona and in California, sometimes winning 1st or 2nd place in these competitions. She was active for several years in the Arizona Designer Craftsmen organization and in 2005, served as their Exhibition Chairperson.
Her first step-by-step article, published in the January 1980 issue of Lapidary Journal Gem Cutting Magazine, consisted of original gem cutting instructions for a 3.2 carat citrine. Since then, Joyce has had numerous step-by-step articles of her original jewelry designs published in various international magazines including Jewelry Artist, Step-By-Step Beads, Wire Jewelry, Jewelry Arts & Lapidary Journal just to name a few.
She is currently an active member of Arizona Quilters Guild and has exhibited her bargello wall hangings in their yearly exhibition.
