Melody MacDuffee has been making jewelry for several decades. Originally a crocheter, she discovered wire as a medium about fifteen years ago. Still in love with lace, she has continued to allow her crochet aesthetic to inform her wirework. Melody is the author of four books, three of them on wire-working. Melody has taught jewelry-making all over the United States and as far away as West Africa, where she co-founded a non-profit that provides paid training and steady jobs at a living wage for at-risk young people belonging to Ghana’s Krobo tribe.
