Jodi discovered the wonderful world of creating jewelry in 2001. Lucky her living in Tucson where the world's largest gem show is held every year! After designing for a couple of years, she began writing tutorials on how to make your own jewelry and went on to teach classes across the U.S. and internationally. She is a self-taught jewelry designer, wire wrapping since 2005, wire weaving since 2008 and metalsmithing since 2010. She was a freelance writer for Step By Step Wire Jewelry and Easy Wire magazine and a contributing author to the books Wire Style and Wire Style 2. She is the author of Weave, Wrap, Coil Creating Artisan Wire Jewelry and Artisan Filigree Wire-Wrapping Jewelry Techniques and Projects. Teaching and writing were great but what she really wanted to do was wholesale her jewelry.
Jodi developed her Leather & Metal Edge Lines in the summer of 2013 and hasn't looked back! She loves designing and regularly adds innovative designs to her lines.
