Joanna Sibbald is a 28 year old elementary school teacher of children between the age of 4 and 6 years old. Her favorite part of her job is that she is free to use her own creativity. When Joanna was younger she worked at a preschool where she organized afterschool activities. ‘It’s wonderful to see how children develop, how they practice and use their newly gained knowledge. They give a smile, a hug and say what they think.’
Joanna loves living in Delft close to her family, friends & colleagues. She enjoys food, cosiness & shiny jewelry. She dreams of having a little boutique with jewelry and crafty things she loves, serving the best coffee, tea & cupcakes of the world.

A day in the life of Joanna looks like…

Getting up very early…Every day is a new day with unpredictable events. Working with themes and teaching children while they are also playing. After schoolhours there’s always work to do in the classroom like administration or meetings. When I go home, it’s time to cook, dine and relax.

What’s on your bedside table?

A book called “Supergelukkig”, Flowmagazine, alarmclock, mobile charger, jewelry box with my favorite jewels of this moment.

How would you describe happiness?

Relaxing at home, now we’re using our free time decorating our new home, doing entertaining activities with friends and family, dining, shopping, arts and crafts for work, reading, internet, social media.

How would you spend your last €100?

Buying groceries for home and little gifts for the people I love.

How would you describe your sense of style?

Casual with a twist, clean and fresh and sometimes chique. I love to experiment with new colours. Colours I wear nowadays are soft pink, grey, purple and denim.

Where do you like to shop?

In the Netherlands I shop in the Hague and Rotterdam mainly. When abroad, I love to shop in Antwerp, Essen, Barcelona and Madrid. I shop in department stores like De Bijenkorf but also H&M, Mexx, Massimo Dutti, Maison Scotch. I also adore little boutiques with original brands.

How important is jewelry to you?

I always need to wear earrings! When I’m travelling, I buy jewelry as a souvenir. I’m so happy when I discover new designers or brands abroad. It’s like finding little treasures.

Why do you like to wear Calor Jewelry?

It’s refined, sophisticated, sweet & romantic. You can wear it everyday. Most jewelry is big or rough processed. That’s not the case with Calor Jewelry.

What is your favorite piece you’ve collected up till now?

The Louise earrings and a version of the Rosie short gold earrings with goldthreaded gemstones. I get compliments all the time when I wear these.

Which pieces are on your wishlist at the moment?

I adore the new Spring Summer 2013 collection ‘Collection Naturel‘. The Lise earrings and the Carole necklace are both beautiful for the summer and I can’t choose between the Sophie earrings or the Eliane earrings.

Do you have a special memory wearing Calor Jewelry you’d like to share with us?

I’ve worn the Louise earrings at a cremation ceremony a few days ago. Because I didn’t want it to be a sad and grey ensemble.
