Joy Kruse

Joy Kruse loves to play with fire, this is a trait of all metalsmiths... being a pyromanic. She loves to mix fire, metal & stone which by accident or design makes her a jeweler. Kruse is self-taught for the most part and really enjoy making the entire piece right down to every little component. 

"Inspiration? Where does it come from? I get that question all the time, especially with my unique stone pieces. My inspiration often comes in lost thoughts, times when I am doing something else and the idea just floats into my head... it's a very organic process. New creative designs are never good if the thoughts are forced. I have always kept a very disorganized journal of these thoughts. I go to it when I need it and when I don't need it, the daily practice of writing down the thoughts you dismiss. It's a messy tally of my brain but it works. Somehow that messy record of randomness flows out of my fingertips and into a sheet of silver or gold." - Joy Kruse

Other inspiration comes from Kruse's surroundings which includes: the outdoors, kids, birds, flowers, flowing water, dirt, rocks, trees, religion & religious symbols, everyday nature, history, biology, and science. ​Design is everywhere.
