“Lily’s” pieces are handmade in Joan’s private studios, in central New York. Each group of scarves is woven after careful consideration of colors and design combinations, often reflecting something seen in nature or inspired by some chosen theme. In designing jewelry, an initial design which may be used in one piece may then fee ollowed by other similar pieces reflecting elements of the first, thus creating a small group of items, a “signature” that is unique to that group.

Custom orders are usually created with the customer themself participating in defining the size, shape, metal used, and other decisions, such as whether or not a stone is to be used, and about metal texture, style, and color ways desired, and within their preferred price range.
