Being an artist is as much a calling as it is an obsession. You can’t help yourself. It just feels good to make something new and beautiful. The fact that people enjoy what you make is icing on the cake. Writing about it is harder. Let’s try a metaphor: the marriage of stone and metal to create jewelry.
Joan North is a metalsmith working in fine art jewelry. Each piece is created individually as a tiny sculpture one can wear on their person. Incorporating precious and semi-precious materials, Joan uses metal as a backdrop for compositions she produces using her stones. Whimsical yet tasteful.
