Joyce Herbert

Phone: 315-536-8618


Jewelry maker


Joyce Herbert is originally from Rochester and after many years on Keuka Lake made it her permanent home in 2000.  Having retired from work in the Rochester arts community and Keuka College, she then revived a long-time interest in making jewelry.  Joyce became a volunteer at the Arts Center of Yates County where she took a workshop taught by fellow artist Janis Long, and credits her with helping to expand the scope of her work which now includes hand shaped and forged metal components, as well as vintage findings and fibers.  "I find joy as I immerse myself in the textures, shapes and vibrant colors of the metals, beads ad found objects involved in the design process."  She also creates tiny silk purses made from men's ties.
