I am a designer, business woman, technician, janitor, creative mastermind, and flunky. I play with fire, solve problems, and burn my fingertips on buffing wheels. I am obsessive. I am compulsive. I am a jeweler.
Hi! My name is Jo. My studio is a small space of limitless possibilities located in the garage between the cat dish and the recycling.
I am a graduate of the Metal Arts Program at Humboldt State University, and currently live in Marysville, California with my husband Richard. I have been designing and making jewelry profes-sionally for over 25 years now.
Each piece of my jewelry is hand fabricated using a torch and a few hand tools. So basically, I construct each piece individually. I do not cast, and there is no mass production involved.
I exhibit my work in several art shows and craft festivals in Northern California from April through December. For a listing of upcoming events, please hit the “Upcoming Shows” button.
The Placerville Art Gallery on Main Street in Placerville, CA, has a large sampling of my work along with other fine crafts and artwork. It is a very fun place to visit if you are in the area.
