Judi, always the consummate crafter and eager to learn new skills, started wire wrapping in 2007. She has attended William Holland twice a year since and sought additional classes to further refine her wire wrapping techniques. Judi has trained with some the best wire artists at William Holland including Sue Rowand, Diane Mason, and Dawn Thornton. She has also taken a number of chain and silver classes with John Fevedt, Howard Siegel, Case Leeser and Jim Richardson. Since 2008, Judi has been teaching at local bead stores, bead shows, and all-day retreats, as well as providing numerous programs for her local bead society. She is the co-founder and past president of the Greater Birmingham Bead Society and a member of the Alabama Mineral and Lapidary Society. Judi also teaches Polymer Clay I and II. While looking for an alternative activity to wire wrapping and weaving, she absolutely fell in love with the versatility of PC. She has organized a PC Group in her hometown to learn and share more about this colorful medium. Judi and her husband, John, a William Holland Cabochon instructor, live in Birmingham, AL with a couple of rescue Yorkies who travel well and think they rule the household.
