Hello ! My name is Jo Anne Vincent and I have been creating jewelry for 15 years.
My vision as an artist spans a lifetime – I have always been creating something! After retiring from thirty years in art education & kindergarten, I turned to jewelry designing to fulfill my creative drive!
I am intrigued by the myriad of possibilities in combining color, pattern & texture.
Marketing my wares has also been an adventure – there is nothing more fulfilling than having a customer be as excited about a piece as I am. I have been an exhibitor at the juried Dayton Art Institute Oktoberfest for the past 15 years.
My sterling silver and copper jewelry begin with selecting the beads... pearl, beaded beads from Bali or hand-blown glass from California, agate, turquoise, opal, and lapis to name a few.
New to my collection are my leather cord necklaces and bracelets - they showcase a pendant, often stone and are embellished with copper, brass, and sterling.
I have always had an eye for design and color and the desire to be different and unique – to stand alone. For me, being involved in creating jewelry provides an amazing outlet for the expression of my artistic vision.
