Joan Huggard is a stained glass artisan based in Dumbo, Brooklyn.
Inspired by her work in historic restoration, she discovered an affinity for the delicate and intricate work of stained glass master Louis Comfort Tiffany. She began to hone her skills as a stained glass artist and in 1998 she launched Citybitz with a collection of hand forged jewelry and accessories inspired by New York City.
The ultimate compliment is that Citybitz is a “go to” resource for jaded New Yorkers who want to give a sophisticated gift that pays homage to their beloved city. The only “complaint” is that the buyer often can’t resist treating themselves to one of Joan’s iconic pieces in addition to purchasing gifts for their loved ones.
Currently Joan sells direct to customers and at select artisan markets and Pop-Up shops around New York City.
