“Lily” is a one person business. Her real name is Joan Palmer Ganeles, and she designs and hand creates each piece herself in her home studios.

I’ve been working with silver and gold metals for more than 45 years now. I’ve studied more than 25 years with a master silversmith, and had hundreds of inspiring hours with skilled craftsmen creating jewelry, metal sculpture and tableware.

When not weaving or hammering, soldering and polishing, I might be found playing with my dog, or in my gardens, where I grow more than 40 varieties of my favorite flower — lilies, of course!

In both weaving and jewelry I prefer to work with fine materials, whether metals, semi-precious gems, or luxe threads; scarves and shawls are warm and exquisitely soft to touch, and metals can be finished to their highest gloss, or not. And all remain very affordable.

Each of the pieces you see is truly ‘one of a kind’, meant to stand alone. Most importantly, everything you’ll see here was handmade and meant to use or wear every day.
