About Lindsay Jarvis

Lindsay Jarvis is the Products and Promotions Editor for Interweave Jewelry. New to jewelry making, she comes from the yarn-filled world of Interweave, working in the past for Interweave Crochet magazine and then for Interweave Books. She has always been fascinated by the arts, fashion, and crafting. Years ago, after picking up a pamphlet on how to knit, she suddenly became fixated on fiber and began learning as much as possible. Lindsay’s designs can be seen in Interweave Knits, Interweave Crochet, and Interweave Crochet Home. Eager to absorb as much as possible about jewelry, she is ready to experience all of the mistakes and triumphs of a being a beginner all over again. When not tangled up in yarn or metal, Lindsay loves to walk her two toy poodles, play around with vintage fashions, watch old movies, and attend ballet classes.
