Meet Jodi. She's a peach. And she's Italian, in fact she's from New York near where my father attended West Point. She's an artist and a sweetheart. Jodi has been making and selling her jewelry to brick and mortar stores in and around the area for years. She also has an Etsy shop. We met in class at the Art League,in Old Town Alexandria, near the Torpedo Factory.
Realizing how close we live to one another -(and classes are out for the summer)- we decided to start some smithing play dates.
Here she is hard at work...she's making an item which will be on display this December in Alexandria. I'll update you with more information about that as the event approaches.
Gals do need their nourishment. We enjoyed cheese, humus with garlic, crackers and bread with some Merlot. (isn't her hair great? mine went flat with all of my pre-planning running around :O)
Earlier I managed to get my Etsy orders in the mail! I'm so grateful and thankful for every order I receive! :-) pssst we're still working, I just wanted to say "hey" and update my blog :-)
