Meet Joanne Joseph, the designer behind Joey J. Jewelry. As a young girl, she’d often find herself sneaking into her parent’s bedroom, peeking inside her mom’s jewelry box, and selectively picking out pieces of jewelry to play with. After the establishment of her family’s jewelry business in the 1980’s, Joanne would often tag along with her mom to work, where she was further immersed into the world of jewelry and fashion. It was here in the office where her draw towards jewelry blossomed into a passion for design.
It’s the culmination of growing up in Trinidad, migrating to NYC, and being nurtured within a family who values their opportunities to travel the world that has opened her eyes to the endless diversity and possibilities in life. The people, the architecture, the wildlife, the food, the traditions, the beauty, the fashion, the jewelry; it’s truly captivating. This exposure to these complex cultures and cities around the globe has had the greatest influence on where the inspiration for her designs stem from. To be able to see a number of jewelry collections by a number of designers in a number of different cultures has made an impact in her design process one way or another, and she hopes to spread her knowledge and experiences through Joey J. Jewelry.
“My advice is to always go with your gut and stay true to yourself”. Keeping this in mind, she’s striving to bring something new to the table: something fresh, something empowering, something more than just a jewelry brand.
