Reinvented Elegance - from Artist Joyce Wagner
My mission is to create things that will make people smile and bring them joy. Reinvented Elegance features wire-wrapped jewelry, mosaics, and pressed flower art. I’ve loved to make things since I was little. In fact, grouting mosaics reminds me of making mud pies many years ago in my side yard. To the complete horror of a few girly-girls in my neighborhood, I then proceeded to decorate them with Dogwood berries and sun-bake them on my aluminum slide! Today I’m inspired by my terrific family (husband, five kids, and three cats); my many talented artist friends; anything funny; the gift of nature; recycling bins; and beautiful Old Town, Alexandria, VA (not necessarily in that order). In making jewelry and accessories, I love to throw odd materials and colors together with pressed flowers, a myriad of recycled items, and twists of wire and see what happens! I also love the look of crocheted jewelry pieces, somehow at once Victorian and edgy. (Jewelry: earrings to necklaces, and everything in-between. Accessories: key chains, bookmarks, cell phone charms.) In creating mosaics, I get tremendous satisfaction from finding discarded or thrift store materials and breathing new life into them. I also love the idea that an odd assemblage of materials can somehow be greater than its individual parts. (Mosaic products: mirror frames, gazing orbs, tables.) In creating with pressed flowers and leaves, I never cease to marvel at Nature’s beauty and what a wonderful gift it is to each of us. (Pressed flower products: jumbo refrigerator magnets, greeting cards, lampshades.)
