I love colour and I love texture. These two things inspire most of my work. To see a rainbow will always bring a smile to my face. I try to be - Joy by name and Joyful by nature.
Hi, I'm Joy! Metal clay artist, enameller, teacher and generally happy person. My work is known for it’s fun, vibrant colours - Joyful Jewellery! I am passionate about creating and I love teaching others the wonders of using metal clay and adding colour with enamel. Fun jewellery, fun workshops.
