It means, "performing according to ones artistic conceptions" and Joan has been an innovative interpretive creator her entire life. When designing and creating her unique jewelry, her ability to combine an eclectic grouping of unique and mundane objects of interesting materials, textures, shapes and colors so as to redefine them and turn them into something they never thought they could be . . . objects of rare beauty, originality and expressions of joy.
