View Full Version : Newbie to WC

07-13-2002, 03:54 PM
I just signed up to the WC this week. WOW, you could get lost in here!!!!

I have posted on a few threads already but have not really introduced myself.

So far everyone has been wonderful and very helpful(showing me how to post a picture!).

My name is Jodi Lindsey(didnt get to creative with my user name, LOL). I am a hot glass artist, but mostly I am a mom!
I live in Arizona with my husband and two wonderful children that keep me on my toes and away from the torch most days.

I am fairly new to the lampworking world too. I made my first bead on a hot head on Dec. 9th. The addiction grew very fast! I am now on a minor with an oxygen concentrator and in hog heaven(for a while at least!)

I have met some WONDERFUL people in the lampworking world that have been so kind to and generous to me! I am so grateful to those individuals!
I belong to my local bead group and continue to take classes through the Mesa Arts Center with Laurie Nessel.

Besides lampworking I also dabble a bit in painting and poetry. Some of my work can be found on my website : www.beadworx.com

Thanks for letting me introduce myself and join another great community here at WC!

Here is a picture of some recent beads I made called Sea Stars

Welcome Jodi!

I'm glad you made your introduction formally so we can all get to know you a little better. I've enjoyed looking at your wonderful glass works periodically, and look forward to your future postings. Glad you're here!:)

Best, Valorie

Love the ruffles, Jodi! Yes, Jodi likes to push the envelop - much more experimental than I! I love your vessels, too.

Hi Jodi!

So glad to see you here.:clap:

I don't want to embarass you or anything, but I wanted to tell everyone about the first time I met you at the beadmakers meeting...

Here is this really nice blonde lady holding a string of these incredibly perfect round pucker ended beads with incredibly precise dots in a rainbow of colors. These were her first beads! Incredible! I was torn between being insanely jealous and truly amazed. But Jodi is so nice that I can't help but be proud to know her. :)

See you and Laura in July!

Thank you all!

And Carol and Laura, you are making me blush!! :p Hope to see you both at the next meeting!

This place is so awesome. Many different art styles to check out. I am currently lost in the computer design picts! Even thinking of tyring some out myself!

Tried out the chat room last night and met some very nice people!

Laura, I think you got everyone to move over here from the ISGB forum! LOL!! I went over there and it's a ghost town!

Take care everyone!

Welcome Jodi! Well, I started lampworkin a month later than you, but I have only 1/4 the talent that you are already exhibiting.

You go Girl!
