Joanne Hart is the founder and designer
behind Luxe Design. Before studying jewellery design, Joanne completed a degree
in sculpture at the University of Calgary. After moving to Vancouver, she
completed the Jewellery Art and Design program at Vancouver Community College
and created Luxe Design in 1995. Joanne has always been obsessed with tiny,
exquisite details and the meaning of life. She began making jewellery as a
child and has never stopped.Luxe Design was started in 1995 as a
line sold through boutiques and department stores. The line ranges from charming to sophisticated, mixing Sterling Silver and Gold with an arrya of gemstones, pearls, antique finishes, leather and handmade chain. Exquisite touches like original findings finish off designs inspired by art, nature, travel and urban living. Innovations in jewellery technology combined with earthy textures and traditional goldsmithing techniques create the foundation for the unique look and feel of Luxe Design Jewellery. The website showcases designs that fall into two main categories. Modern Heirloom Jewellery and Tell Your Story jewellery.
MODERN HEIRLOOM JEWELLERY
The sleek modern line is wearable
everyday and is an easy compliment to any wardrobe. It reflects the fashion
trends and colors of the moment and ranges from glamorous cocktail rings to
that perfect pair of earrings that you never take off. This collection is also
the home of the Luxe Design ALTERNATIVE BRIDAL line of custom designed engagement
rings and wedding bands. Joanne also creates contemporary Private Label
collections for other brands.
TELL YOUR STORY
This collection has a more personal bent. Wearers can choose to
add their own names and dates to personalize the silver and gold jewelry, and
add genuine birthstones and symbolic charms. Many of the most popular designs
have inspirational sayings that the wearer connects to personally. Mixing and
matching the charms, gemstone beads, and meaningful words allows the wearer
their own unique expression.
YOUR STORY line has been a co-creative process between Joanne and her
customers. It is rewarding to see the unique combinations that customers put
together, it keeps the experience fresh and the jewellery line constantly evolving.
More importantly though, people often choose personalized jewellery as a way to
memorialize their loved ones, and it is a deeply moving experience to create a
piece of jewellery with someone as a way to remember and celebrate their loved
ones. The TELL YOUR STORY Collection would not exist without the passion and
love of our customers, and it is an honor to help them express and remember
what is most important to them.
