Happy finds from our travels to the Atlanta market that can be had through the internet--Joli jewelry by artist Judy Lyons. The studio is in Park Slope, Brooklyn where her line is designed and assembled by hand. http://www.jolijewelry.com
Judy creates limited edition wearable pieces of art from vintage beads, charms, buttons and other surprises. She has a wonderful sense of color and style, mixing vintage and contemporary elements for truly unique jewelry along with an occasional dish or two. We love the many floral notes in these little treasures.
This little fish pond dish uses 1930's art deco glass for leaves, vintage plastic from the 50's and 60's for the flowers, etc. and the fish is carved from bone. Each piece comes with a note about the origins of the various elements.
Her collection is currently being sold in boutiques and specialty stores throughout the US, Canada, Japan, Hong Kong, Spain, Italy, France, Holland & South Korea. You can find a select few pieces through the internet.
