Veteran Jewelry Vendor Joan Boyce To Exit HSN

September 9, 2019

We always enjoyed watching HSN jewelry host Joan Boyce, with her huge back square eyeglass frames, New York City manner and exuberant personality. She has been on the No. 2 home shopping network for 11 years, but last week announced on Facebook that her last show will be Oct. 29.

We guess this is part of QVC’s continuing purge of vendors since it merged-with/took-over HSN.

Sad to see yet another vendor who is unique disappear.

After A Year Of Jewelry, Designer Joan Boyce Brings Her Bling To Boots For HSN

November 11, 2009

Jewelry designer Joan Boyce celebrated her first anniversary on HSN Tuesday, and she had some rocking fashion pieces.

Her large pendants and pins are really inexpensive and look great. Our favorites were a large Maltese cross pendant/pin for $50, and a pearl and crystal-accented necklace that sold out at $130.

What was even more interesting is that Boyce, who wears huge trademark glasses and has shiny long black hair that she wears in a ponytail, brought some of the pricey original jewelry that she replicates for HSN.

For example, she held up a black bead necklace that was costume jewelry but was vintage, so it cost more than $1,000. Boyce’s version, named “Too Fabulours To Be True,” was $140 and sold out.

Boyce, who has celebrity customers for her high-end work, also held up a $70,000 platinum and diamond necklace that she duplicated for HSN for $50. The original necklace belongs to one of Boyce’s clients.  

Another unusual piece was her “Angel Eye” bracelet, also modeled after a real gold piece. In Jersey, we call that an “Evil Eye” bracelet, but we like Boyce’s name better. She said the bracelet can link you to loved ones, and suggested teens drape it over their rearview mirrors so they know their parents are thinking about them.

Her interpretation was that the eye represents someone watching over you, not keeping evil away from you, which we like.

What also interested us is that Boyce is doing a new line for HSN, shoes, that debuts Friday. Some of the her boots look like Ugg knockoffs with bling, and we don’t like them.

But she has an adorable pair of tall pink boots, with crystals, for girls.
