About

My obsession with all things sparkly began at a very young age, and has only grown with time. Some people would call it a sickness (my boyfriend for one) but I like to call it LOVE!

It started with jewelry, but now I create many objects of beauty with keen attention to blending movement, color, and texture. (Maybe it has something to do with the 20 years that I spent dancing)

Whenever possible I try to rescue discarded items, re-imagine them, and give them fresh life as something beautiful and new.

After several years in the fashion biz, I abruptly left my home in New York City in 2003 to move to Miami Beach and open Joyella Boutique, a little shop on the famous "Lincoln Road". The store carried my own work, as well as the work of about 50 other indie designers.

In 2005 I decided that I couldn't live without New York any longer, closed shop, and headed back up north.

So here I am, several years and several careers later, and my favorite occupation is still making pretty, flowing little "sculptures" out of bits of stone and metal. And delicious combinations of yarn. And random pretty pieces of vintage china. And whatever else is beautiful and lying around :)

It is not much, but it is all from my heart.

Speaking of from my heart: I LOVE LOVE LOVE doing custom work! If you have a special occasion, a special person, or just an idea of something that you would like to have made, please contact me and we can work together to create the piece that you have been dreaming of at the price you can afford.

Xoxo,
Jennifer
