I discovered Joane Cornell/GLINT on-line, and I honestly cannot say enough about this warm, talented designer and artist! After a few email exchanges about an aquamarine pendant I hoped she would create for me, Joane was out hunting for the best possible stones and sending me videos of what she’d found. She wasn’t satisfied until she’d found just the right one. She was funny and gracious, and enthusiastically agreed when I asked if she could incorporate a second stone. She sent numerous sketches, and once we agreed on a final design, she kept me informed every step of the way. Yesterday, I received my pendant: an 18k gold bezel set teardrop cabochon aquamarine stone with a smaller faceted emerald (my two daughter’s birthstones). Words cannot do the pendant justice, from the quality of the stones and craftsmanship to the heft of the gold. More important is the obvious care that Joane put into making something just right for me.
