Jo is a fabulous teacher! She makes it fun and allows for people to find their own style. After one class, I have become addicted to beading - its so therapeutic!
Jo taught me how to design jewelry with intention. She helped me take old, drab necklaces and create a stylish and funky new piece that I wear proudly not just because I made it myself but because it actually rocks!
