Picture Pieces... Joanne focuses on producing one-off & bespoke pieces, which are miniature pictures or ‘vignettes’ where a specific theme, mood or event is represented.

 

The 'Four Seasons'  brooches,(as seen below) use 18ct gold, platinum and  palladium with unusual gemstones to exemplify the plants & elements that, for Joanne, speak of each of the seasons.

 

A personal language which nevertheless communicates to many. Other subjects have been coastal life, flowers & foliage, landscape & weather, a moment in time or a visual delight.

Designs are influenced by her passions for nature, landscape, history, archaeology, ballet & classical music. Joanne prefers to make  entirely by hand, with traditional techniques such as forging, piercing, repousse & hand-built stone mounts.

All the designs shown here are protected by Copyright and are the intellectual property of Joanne Gowan.  No design may be reproduced or made up without the express permission of Joanne Gowan. Any breach of copyright will be vigorously pursued through legal channels.
