Raleigh, NC. based Johanna Ely is the founder and designer of the one woman show that is Good Girls Studio. Revamper of vintage jewelry, Johanna started designing her upscale One of a Kind jewelry line in 2007. Her designs can be found at retailers across the nation as well as on her website She is involved in local charity fashion shows as well as Redress Raleigh & fashionSpark runway events.
After a career in luxury goods retail & wholesale management she launched her jewelry line to fill a need that she found missing in the accessory market. Endless searches for vintage inspired jewelry led her to start rethinking her inherited vintage jewelry left to her by her late grandmother Mama Lou. Once she realized she could revisit the past by revamping antique jewelry she began scouring fleamarkets & estates sales looking for long forgotten treasure!
Along with her Ready to Wear line, Johanna custom creates “Living Heirloom” jewelry for you to pass along to future generations right from your own jewelry box. Custom wedding jewelry is perfect for the bride-to-be as something old & something new. Let her create your personal wedding jewelry with “something old” that you can continue to wear & pass down long after the wedding ceremony is over!
Check out her website for the current ready-to-wear collections. Good Girls Studio encompasses her love of historical costume, flea market thrifting and fine gemstones. Designs combining her romantic story telling & penchant for asymmetry fill her shop with whimsy.

Marie in Action!
