Joanna Piniuta is a jewellery designer who fashions eclectic inspiration from her love of art sculpture architecture and the hidden patterns of natural world. Her formal training at the National College of Art and Design and Institute of Professional Auctioneers and Valuers has allowed an original creative fusion of contemporary traditional jewellery making method with the influence of fine and decorative art. A chance meeting with an Irish crafts man awoke her personal childhood memories and family heritage of a special box of Jewellery that magically fascinated her young mind. The encounter rekindled her deep desire to become a jeweller.
Her open style technique of experimentation with mixed materials and resin pigments results in unique individual pieces of design. Exploration of the inner designs is a core element of her process and allows for the realisation of new free forms and subtle colour variations.
