Joann Lustig has been a professional jeweler for over 40 years. Her business was originally established with her husband. After he passed away, Joann took over the designing, creating and marketing, and has been doing this one-woman operation for over 27 years. Their original vision was to create jewelry that was unique, colorful, beautiful and long lasting--pieces that could be worn for a lifetime and then passed on to the next generation. Working only in gold, often incorporating gemstones, and using the lost-wax process, Joann creates one-of-kind rings, pendants, wedding sets and earrings.
Previously she had been showing and selling her work almost exclusively at arts and crafts shows on the East Coast. Now Joann's work is exclusive to Sebastopol Gallery. She is excited about making her art jewelry available locally. Being at the Gallery also means that she is available to design new pieces with customers’ gemstones. She especially enjoys making jewelry that symbolizes and celebrates important events--weddings, birthdays and other special occasions.
