Jeanne, Newman Lake, WA
"Jody - your classes are fabulous!  Your techniques are so inspiring!  Your way of teaching leads me to believe I can do pieces as beautiful and artistic as yours.  Although I've been involved in beading for many years, you innate sense of color and texture is exactly what I needed to grow my own style. I thank you for that.  But more importantly - you have inspired me... inspired me to rediscover my artistic and creative self. For that I can never thank you enough."
