About Our Art

My name is Jan Porter. I live with my husband Danny in Southwest Missouri. I started this journey into jewelry making about 20 years ago. Our vacations were spent traveling to rock and mineral collecting sites around the country. This led to cutting and polishing rocks to create beautiful freeform cabochons. While involved with the local gem club I saw this wonderful art form called wire wrapping. Realizing this was the perfect way to show off the cabochons; I enrolled in wire wrapping class at William Holland Lapidary School. Working with sterling, gold filled and gold wire became more than a hobby. I worked for 8 years at a local bead and lapidary store in Springfield Mo. While there I taught classes in wire wrap, beading, chain making, and copper enameled beads. I also created custom designs for retail sale. After retiring in 2003 we continue to travel to Arizona each year to gather rough material and experience local art. I participate in 15 to 20 shows per year and continue to develop in this and other art forms.
