Metal smith Instructor Extraordinaire

Janice and I have been friends for 20 years. She has been a metal smith, jewelry artist and instructor all the time I've known her. In the summer she exhibits consistently at art & craft fairs in the Chicago area, so her collectors know where to find her. She designs and sells under her own label, "JJB’s Silver & More". Her graceful designs and high quality workmanship have made her a collectible designer. All of her work is hand made, unique and crafted with the finest quality sterling silver often including Semi-Precious Stones, Fused Glass and her own Lampwork Beads. Janice regularly teaches at TLD Designs, Instructing Classes in: Metal Smith (Beginner ~ Advanced), Chain Making, Techniques in Wire Work, and Beginner level Bead/Pearl Stringing.
