Janet & Joe  Trosino

Janet and Joe are retired math teachers, having taught for 35 years at the middle school, high school and college levels. They came to William Holland in 2000 with their family (mother and daughter) to learn how to make the beautiful jewelry Janet bought at local gem shows. She took wire wrapping and PMC for several years, but fell in love with the mathematical aspect of chainmaille. She has taken classes from John Runkle. Dee and Bill Conybear, John Fetvedt and Howard Siegel and continues to challenge herself with new patterns and ideas each year. They now sell at gem and craft shows in Buffalo and Syracuse, NY and at Jeweler's Workbench in Waynesville, NC. Joe cuts all the jump rings making it possible for Janet to concentrate on the chainmaille patterns.
