Ginny Remedi-Brown is a Malden jewelry artisan whose work stems from her background as a production potter and her training and years of experience as a fine artist. Her designs are unique and encompass two of her beliefs: using found objects to create beauty, and having something for everyone.
Growing up on a farm in a humble immigrant family, Ginny learned to make do with what was available. This allowed her creativity to fly, and she became proficient at a young age with “making something out of nothing.” Her work reflects this, as she uses unusual shapes and tools to create her jewelry designs.
Serving as a Roman Catholic nun during Vatican II taught Ginny to reach people where they are and create community and relationships. If you have ever seen Ginny sell her work at a fair under her trade name, “Jewels for the Journey/Ginny Remedi Designs,” or interact with customers at The Gallery@57, you will see this to be true.
Ginny was an art education major in college, with a dual concentration in pottery and silversmithing. After graduation, Ginny entered the convent, where she made pottery. Shortly thereafter, the community split and she made her home in an emerging lay spiritual community, creating and selling pottery under the name “Redeemed Earth,” a religious double entendre.
She is deeply committed to creating art as a “calling,” always coming up with new designs and ensuring the highest quality of utilitarian products that are well-crafted, unique and aesthetically pleasing. Ginny is one of the founding members of The Gallery@57 (57 Pleasant St., Malden). She lives what she teaches, putting sweat equity as a community member and ensuring that The Gallery@57 is beautifully designed, as well as used to its fullest potential.
