Barry continues his love of teaching as a sub in the Lake County schools. Jane keeps busy by creating new designs. Together they continue to sell their whimsical creations at about 20 shows a year. You can view some more of their work HERE.

The final crafter we are going to introduce to you today is Joe Taylor. Joe creates women’s jewelry from 14K rolled gold wire or sterling silver wire using only hand tools.
