Get to Know
I am Jodi Longobardo, a 43 year old woman from Southern NJ. I have been fusing glass since 2007. I love the medium of glass, the shine, the sparkle, the smoothness. I make all kinds of jewelry, but specialize in fused glass pendants and earrings. I work exclusively in 90 COE, and combine dichroic and art glass in my pieces for the best effect. With a few exceptions, all the bails I use are sterling silver, and some are handmade by me as well.
I like to make pieces with a fun, funky feel, with bright colors and sparkle. I also love animals and make pendants with dog breed silhouettes, as well as cats, horses, and other animals. I also make custom Rainbow Bridge pendants for people who have lost their beloved pet. I combine a small amount of the animal's ashes with glass and create a permanent memorial piece of jewelry.
I enjoy doing custom orders to make a customer's fused glass dreams come true. Want a piece in a different color, with a different symbol? Just ask!
All pendants come in a gift box with a free magnetic choker necklace, stainless steel ball chain necklace, or silver plated snake or box chain also included.
I have a partner, a ten year old son, and an American Bulldog who often join me at events. My son has even started making his own pendants!
