Mostly self-taught, Jo is a mixed media artist who’s been creating her entire life. Part environmentalist, part fashionista, she is drawn to discarded items radiating natures patina. Crazy about color and texture, and taking it to the next level, she has learned soldering, casting, fold forming and enameling to add layers to her designs.
With an organic boho vibe, her one of a kind works include jewelry and accessories made from found, repurpose and salvaged stuff. Jo also crafts personal family heirlooms into wearable memories.
With her love for metal, her recent pieces are a compilation of soldering and cold connections using recycled cans.
She was an ambassador for Bernina, featured in Daily Candy and Celebrate Green Eco Blog. She’s attended Artfest, Bead & Button Show, and has taught locally.
Jo lives in South Florida with her husband, cats and chickens. She loves to travel and pick up treasures along the way!
