About the Artist

All designs shown are collaboratively created by Joan Michlin and Skip Ennis, a husband-wife team working together since Art School in 1976. Working in precious metals since 1980, they have been on the cutting edge of the Art Jewelry scene ever since, with work in 9 museum collections as well as numerous galleries and private collections. All aspects of the design and execution are done as a team. As artists, we channel our experiences and interaction with our environment into our own iconography and jewelry. We try to express our fascination with light, energy, and powerful form by using nature's finest elements to produce a collection of jewelry that sings with the same excitement we feel. Such diverse themes as architecture, the Art Deco movement, Nature in her myriad forms, Victorian lace, and flight are continually explored on the sketchbook page. Models are developed, gemstones are selected, and after much thought and care, the final design is created. And Joy begins. Live and work in Sarasota, FL.
