About JET. Designs
JET. Designs' jewellery and accessories are individually designed and crafted at Joanne's studio in Toronto. Joanne has taken jewellery classes to refine her skills specifically relating to wire work, art clay silver, glass bead making, and glass fusing. She has expanded on the techniques learned, developing them into the beautiful pieces you see today. She frequently experiments with different materials, texture, colour, symmetry, and technique to create distinctive pieces. Joanne's designs are greatly inspired by nature, textiles, and architecture. Many of JET. Designs' pieces incorporate wirework and has allowed Joanne to create designs that are free-formed by using a combination of techniques such as wire-wrapping, coiling, and hammering. She is personally involved with every element of producing each product, making every piece a unique addition to the collection.
