Joanne's Profile

About

My name is Joanne and I live in the beautiful country of Malta, a small Island in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea. This tiny and sunny Island (we are said to have some 300 days of sunshine a year) is where I was born and where I live with my husband, two sons and dog.

I had my first formal training in colour and design in the early 1990′s whilst studying Interior Design. I discovered my love for beading some 10 years later when I attended a beading course and never looked back, focusing my artistic endeavor on the wonderful world of beadwork and jewellery-making ever since. Over the years I have continuously added to my skills, supplementing self-teaching and experimentation with formal instruction in jewellery manufacture & design as well as silver filigree.

My work is mostly inspired by the sea and the land around me and I often use sea urchin shells and other finds collected from the seabed around Malta. Beadweaving is worked using the best quality high-strength thread that does not stretch, resulting in beadwork that retains its shape. Precision beads with superior quality finishes make each piece extra special. All my work is designed and created by myself in a smoke-free environment.
