About Joann

Joann has been designing beautiful jewelry for over 20 years, reaching women and men in the US, Canada, Japan, Mexico and Europe.

Her passion for gemstones began as a young child when she found her first crystal while digging in an obscure area in her Chicago neighborhood. She was intrigued to find what she believed was a “diamond” and her fascination in stones began.

She loved spending endless hours with her Grandmother rummaging through her crystal jewelry that developed into a regular activity and ignited her passion of jewelry. Joann, an artist at heart, spend much of her childhood and adulthood drawing, painting, sewing and creating various arts, crafts and fashion.

During her successful career in corporate America, she signed up for her first Metal Smith course at Lill St Gallery to feed her craving for design. That course shifted everything in her life, for that course turned into 2 years of courses, saying farewell to a successful career in Corporate America and achieving her high school dream to be a fashion designer at Joann Lysiak Jewelry in 1996.

Her early collection consisted of sterling silver hand forged, cast and wire wrapped jewelry that she sold to galleries, high end clothing boutiques, Nordstrom and specialty stores. The collection evolved over time to her signature look of fine crafted, intricate, unique and timeless gemstone designs loved by her buyers and clients. Her collection was sold and featured in top stores/galleries/boutiques domestically and internationally, exclusive fashion catalogues, 4 nationally released movies, a TV show, several fashion magazines, local publications, trade magazines, cable TV, fashion websites and interviews with the Chicago Tribune and the Reader.

“I felt so blessed to have done the artistic work I LOVED, worked with the best clients and have had the personal successes in the jewelry business for 13 years.”

After 13 years in business, she felt it was time for a career change to pursue her passion in natural health to help others in their wellness and in 2009 Joann Lysiak Jewelry was closed. She continued to create jewelry for one store, however, over the past nine years her focus was on her new career where she became a certified Nutritionist, Applied Kinesiologist, Master B.E.S.T. Practitioner, QRA Practitioner, Energy Worker and Life Transformation Coach where she empowers her clients in Mind, Body and Spirit.

As a surprise to her in 2018, she was intuitively guided back to jewelry to create a combination of energetically powerful and beautiful designs for clients to harness the energetic properties of gemstones for their personal benefits.

“I worked with the energy properties of gemstones years ago through my intuition, now I am using all my energy knowledge with my intuition to create jewelry with PURPOSE for women and men to align their chakras, protect their personal energy, raise their vibration and help them manifest their desires.”

“I’m so excited to design once again, personally work with clients to create jewelry specific to their needs, energy test to uncover what stone is best for them, coach clients to manifest their desires and teach them how to harness and use the energy properties in jewelry, in stones for their personal use and in stones for their living space. I’m back designing jewelry, better than ever!”

In her free time, you’ll find Joann traveling the globe, exploring nature, gardening, biking, playing with her furry kiddo Corie, taking personal development courses and working up a sweat mambo and salsa dancing.
