This week we are featuring Joni Rae Doyle of Soul Harbor Jewelry! Joni makes fantastic metal clay jewelry that is sure to delight! Here is her story:
“The escape into creativity and the soulful journey to places yet discovered is the foundation of my jewelry. My artwork and life evolve without predetermined plans or sketches. Having the freedom to let my jewelry unfold and grow before my eyes brings moments of chaos along with moments of clarity. Serenity and calmness are hopefully embraced by the beholder in the finished pieces.
I was introduced to Precious Metal Clay (PMC) in 2002. My interest and excitement for the medium was immediate and has grown through my own experimentation and certification classes. The versatility of creating with PMC allows me to unite my jewelry with my passion for the colors of the sea and all things of the Earth. Brilliant glass enamels and vibrant beads bring my jewelry to life.
My jewelry is an extension of myself, a very personal and private insight to the soul of its creator. My jewelry is an outlet, an inlet, and a harbor; a safe place for my soul to retreat. My jewelry is Soul Harbor.”
