Jana Ewy's Profile

About

My name is Jana Ewy, I live in Las Vegas with my husband, 3 Labradors and 20 desert tortoises. My 3 sons have flown the coop.

The name of my company, Just Bananas, well, that pretty much describes me. I am a bit of an ADD (attention deficit disorder), designer. I have had the privilege of flitting around from one medium to another, with reckless abandon for several years. It helps to keep my mind and creative juices flowing. The reason for this is… I am an arts and crafts designer. I have been working with several craft manufactures for the past 8 years. Creating projects and designs using their products. I have written 6 project books, done countless magazine submissions and appeared on several HGTV television segments for the Carol Duvall Show and the DIY Jewelry network.

The name of my company, Just Bananas, well, that pretty much describes me. I am a bit of an ADD (attention deficit disorder), designer. I have had the privilege of flitting around from one medium to another, with reckless abandon for several years. It helps to keep my mind and creative juices flowing.

I have written 6 project books, done countless magazine submissions and appeared on several HGTV television segments for the Carol Duvall Show and the DIY Jewelry network. Although I love what I do, I am so excited to start my own jewelry business. Jewelry making has always been my first love. Second is a product called Friendly Plastic. You will find that most of the pieces designed for my Etsy store are made with this wonderful product.

Friendly Plastic is an incredible medium. I am fascinated by its array of eye catching metallic colors. The process of heating the plastic and fusing the colors together offers endless possibilities for design work. Some of my finished pieces have a look similar to dichroic glass, but are much lighter in weight and best of all they won’t break if you drop them. I have been working with Friendly Plastic for a number of years (like 20… I hate when you have to date yourself like that, ouch). I have developed many of the techniques I use and enjoy sharing my love and knowledge of this product. In fact two of my project books were written to teach others how to create with it.

I hope you are as fascinated by what you see, as I am in creating these pieces for you.

Each of my inlay jewelry components, (beads if you like, only they’re flat not round), are created by heating and fusing a combination of colors together. Then inlaying the fused colors onto a background color. They are then cut into a desired shape and sealed with a resin coating. I then fuse two cut pieces back to back creating the finished component. Each component is one of a kind and completely unique.

I make every effort to ensure that each of my designs is finished to perfection.

Thank you for visiting my store.
