November Art After Hours TONIGHT featuring Janice Original Jewelry from 6pm-8pm


Janice has always loved jewelry-both making and wearing it. She earned a BFA in Metal Design with a Minor in Textile Design in 1989 from East Carolina University, and went to work for a jewelry store in Winston - Salem, NC, where she gained much technical and practical experience. In 1994, Janice and her family moved to Wake Forest where she worked from home until moving into The Cotton Company in 2000 as one of the first resident artists. After four years at The Cotton Company, she opened her own small store, “Janice Originals Fine Designer Jewelry”, located in the Ligon Mill Business Center for nearly ten years. Now she is back at The Cotton Company creating one-of-a-kind pieces of jewelry as well as providing custom work and jewelry repair.
