Luce Artist Biography

Joan Parcher spends hours digging through garbage dumps to gather materials for her jewelry. After collecting fragments of rubber, graphite and mica, the artist sets them aside until she decides how best to showcase their natural characteristics. Parcher states that she only knows how to do jewelry and recalls that she “totally fell apart” in art school when she was asked to create sculpture instead.
