Haida Artist Janine Gibbons

Janine Gibbons, the creator and designer of Janine Gibbons Designs, draws inspiration for her handcrafted jewelry from her island home in Southeastern Alaska.  She incorporates the colors that surround her into the pieces that she creates. Through the ancient art of enameling, she carefully handcrafts each and every piece.

Janine graduated from the Art Institute of Seattle as well as Fort Lewis College in Durango, Colorado.  In trying to find herself, she has studied everything from education to philosophy to biology to religion but finally settled upon what she has been doing for her entire life, which is art. Home for Janine has always been in creating things with her hands and she has been designing and producing jewelry since 2002.
