Joye grew up in Bountiful, Utah where she was a very outgoing girl. She loved to spend time being outdoors as much as absolutely possible. Making forts, playing and hiking in the streams, spending time in the canyons, and putting on plays in the back yard using the clotheslines for their theater curtains. As she got older, some of her favorite events were in the arts. Going to plays, music, dance, museums, and arts festivals made her come alive.
The beginning of her journey in jewelry was in 2005. Joye's home was burglarized and all of her jewelry stolen. A friend of hers, who had previously made her a beautiful necklace, encouraged her to learn to make jewelry and because of her inspiration, she took her first class that very next weekend. That was how she found one of her life's biggest passions.
