Joni has been making jewelry since high school and became a silversmith at the age of 21. She's shown her jewelry at craft fairs in Colorado, California and Arizona.
She was a stay at home mom after adopting two amazing baby girls, so that gave her time to develop her jewelry making skills. She works with a lot of different metals and different jewelry techniques.
She's been teaching metalsmithing, chainmaille and many other jewelry making techniques for 20 years.
She also taught Chainmaille workshops for Rio Grande during the Gem Show and also demoed the Jump Ringer, jump ring cutting system for the late Ray Grossman at Rio Grande Catalog in Motion during the Tucson Gem and Mineral Show for 15 years.
Now she's the proud owner and creator of Get Hammered Metalsmith Studio LLC where she teaches metalsmithing, silversmithing, etching, torch enameling, delft clay casting, chainmaille and much more.
