Giovanna Canu founds the brand Joy-Jo in 2009. After 15 years working as an architect and design manager, she felt the need to take a different route. She travelled to Barcelona to study at Jaime Diaz’s school, El Taller de Joyerìa – Centro de investigación de Joyería Contemporanea, where she attended the biennial course in jewellery making in order to later open her own workshop. In 2013 she also opened an atelier in Milan, where she now designs and hand crafts jewels in her signature style, applying weaving techniques to goldsmith. Her creations are light as feathers, the result of years of research and studies, complete dedication and attention to details, but above all, incredible patience: to weave extra-thin metal threads, made of copper or silver, is a lengthy and intricate process which requires great technical skills. Each piece is rigorously “hand-weaved” and each stone is applied with the level of care that only genuine artisans can achieve.
