Joyce Czarniowski: Petosky Bling
Joyce Czarniowski is a creative jewelry designer that creates one-of-a-kind pieces with findings right from Michigan’s “up north” beaches. She creates with Petosky stones. The stone itself reveals configurations within coral, then she cuts and shapes the stones into intricate and elegant pieces. The entire process brings out each stone’s natural beauty. Turning stones into jewels is what she does and she does it well.
“Since it is a fossilized coral, not each piece can be used. They start out being porous or with no definition to show the beauty within the stone, so each piece is handpicked like a fine diamond. I only use the Petoskey stones with rich, deep, beautiful, vivid corallites.” Czarniowski explains.
Her handmade jewelry pieces range from $15 and up. She enjoys selling her jewelry at local community events and shows. You can support her small business and follow her below:
