Joanie Ripley

When visiting Arizona in 2007, I enrolled in classes making and designing jewelry. I loved the creative process of designing and the smooth feel of gemstones and their healing properties. Some of my favorite stones are Jasper, Agate, and Turquoise. When visiting Gem Shows, I am always looking for that rare stone in texture or color. My favorite crystals to work with are Swarovski. The brilliance of these crystals is beautiful. I specialize in necklaces and earrings and also put together custom pieces to match your latest clothing purchase. My husband Jim finishes all the necklaces with strong magnets which are so easy to wear. I recently have started a youthful line of necklaces and brackets for girls which have been a lot of fun designing as well. My designs have been sold in stores around the country, and now I am pleased to be part of the Artisan’s Corner Gallery.
