JOANNE GAMBLE JEWELLERY
Joanne has always been a creative and artistic person and comes from a family of hard-working tradespeople. Taking inspiration from her father, who made trailers and gates and repaired steelwork for local people, it was natural for her to become a maker too, particularly with metals.
As a recent graduate of the Design and Craft Council of Ireland Goldsmithing and Design course, I have enhanced my skills in all the covered fields. I have used these skills to enhance the organic style of my work whilst adding a geometric feel to it. I enjoy both the design and making process and like to let the piece develop in a natural way as possible, guiding the piece rather than forcing it, to its conclusion. Artist StatementJoanne has kept her organic style whilst continuing to enhance her technical, design skills and would now describe her work as organic yet geometric.
