I was lucky enough to stumble upon Joane Cornell’s shop in Lenox, Mass many years ago. Once I entered, I was mesmerized by her incredibly beautiful and creative designs. I found a pair of earrings that I loved but wasn’t crazy about the direction of the stone and asked if she could reconfigure the design to my specifications. OF COURSE, she said. Within a week, the earrings were delivered to my home in NYC. She was in touch with me along the way and sent me a photo to approve prior to mailing. I held on to her information and about a year ago I contacted Joane (now in Chatham, NY) to see if she could reproduce a necklace by a well-known commercial jewelry designer in time for my birthday. OF COURSE, she said. We had multiple conversations over the phone and over email. Joane was determined to make sure I was getting exactly what I had asked for. The final product was gorgeous and truly a work of art. Her eye for detail and her commitment to make sure that she is satisfying her clients every step of the way, is what will surely have me returning again and again.
