News from Giovanna !!
January 2017 --
Thrilled to be chosen by John Bead Corp. to design a piece to be featured
in an after-party fashion show held in Phoenix for The Association for Creative Industries
(formerly known as The Craft and Hobby Association). After months of working on the project
Fernando DaSilva christened it "Lakshmi's Necklace". Valerie Mayen of Project Runway was
on hand as master of ceremonies and to announce the fashions and jewelry in the show. How
exciting to attend this event and see my work come down the runway!
Afterwards, the necklace (image on left)
was displayed at the Creative World Show in Frankfurt, Germany. More photos of the necklace
and a video by John Bead can be seen on my Facebook page, Joanne M. Fiume.
Previously (2016) --
my first booklet ever,
"Rings by Giovanna", for John Bead Corp. was introduced at the CHA Show (Craft & Hobby
Association) in Anaheim, California on January 10, 2015. This was a wonderful experience
and very exciting for me. For more information please click here:
