Now a solo instructor and working artist, Jessica is currently the sole proprietress behind "Rosy Revolver", an unflinching line of jewelry handbuilt for women who appreciate silver, stone, and the strength of the female spirit.

She resides in Fuquay-Varina, North Carolina with her husband, children, dog and flock of backyard chickens.
