        • Joanne Low

          Joanne Low

          From lawyer to jewellery artist
          When Joanne Low left her job as a lawyer with British Petroleum Co. after the birth of her second son, running her own jewellery business was not at the top of her mind...

          The idea of enrolling in a jewellery-making course was sparked rather unexpectedly when the stay at home mum was sitting with a box of beads from Toys R Us she had bought for her then four year-old daughter, Kaitlyn, and figuring out how to string them together. “Being someone with a voracious appetite for learning, I wanted to learn how to do it perfectly,” explains the mother of two boys and a girl.

          With the knowledge she gained from JDMIS, a metamorphosis took place as Catherine became the ambitious designer. Though Catherine has only been in the industry for two years, she has an idea of what a successful designer should be and is working towards it.

          Entrenched in a job of repetitive tasks for the past 8 years, one day, he happened to catch a fashion television program featuring contemporary jewellery, and it began to fuel ideas in his mind on the endless possibilities that he could do with jewellery, the thought alone excited him!
