Late Bloomers Designs was founded in 1998 when a friend suggested to owner Joanne Clark that “she should do something with her photographs.”
So she did. At one point she had 9 stores around the country (and in Bermuda) selling her photo cards.
In 2006, Joanne launched her jewelry line after, once again, friends challenged her to try her hand at jewelry-making. Her designs were an instant success, much to her surprise, and she concentrated her selling at crafts fairs.
Her designs have been featured at Alpaca International, a boutique in Chevy Chase, Maryland, where over 100 necklaces were sold over a two-year period.
Joanne takes pleasure in the pleasure her products bring her clients.
