Joy Dravecky believes there is always a place for beauty in a woman’s life, no matter who she is or what she’s doing. Her stunning jewelry collections are a reflection of that philosophy, with pieces that are equally as gorgeous with a pair of faded jeans and flip-flops as they are with a little black dress and heels.
Her timeless work combines organic materials such as rough-cut, semi-precious stones paired with gold-filled metal, oxidized silver or vintage brass. Her deep love of natural objects and bohemian influences sends her searching for materials in unlikely places — her Fall 2013 collection included shark-tooth pieces inspired by a rummage through her husband’s childhood rock collection.
Joy sits down to work with the woman who will wear her jewelry in mind, and the end result is a classic piece that a woman of any age can count on again and again. Her necklaces, bracelets and earrings add an essential bit of low-key glamour to everyday life, with pieces meant to be worn and loved rather than stashed away.
Joy Dravecky lives and works in California. You can find her jewelry in boutiques throughout the United States.
