Artist Info

Joanna Gollberg – Asheville, NC
At the age of 13, Joanna Gollberg began making jewelry with fishing lures, beads, and (very heavy!) old coins. Later, her grandmother who was a lifelong enamellist gave her 19-year-old granddaughter an extensive collection of enamels and two large kilns. While in college, Joanna took a two-week course in enameling and basic jewelry at the Penland School of Crafts. This class changed the course of her life, leading her to become a professional designer of art jewelry.

In 1997, Joanna received a jewelry design degree from the Fashion Institute of Technology, NYC. Since then Joanna has been working full time as a studio artist. She has also written four books on making handcrafted designer jewelry–Making Metal Jewelry, Creative Metal Crafts, The Art & Craft of Making Jewelry, and The Ultimate Jeweler’s Guide, published by Lark Books, and she is working on another with a co-author in India on traditional Indian jewelry techniques.

Joanna operates out of an amazing studio in downtown Asheville, North Carolina. Her jewelry has been published in Art Jewelry Magazine, Lapidary Journal, Ornament Magazine, 1000 Rings, 500 Wedding Rings, 500 Enameled Objects, and 21st Century Jewelry. Joanna has taught metal-smithing and been a visiting artist at Penland School many times.
