Weaving Earth’s poetry is an acknowledgment of those that wove this sacred artistry long before me.
Weaving Earth’s poetry is an offering of gratitude for the Earth that goes into each piece.
Weaving Earth's Poetry is based on Treaty 7 territory, home of the Kainai, Piikani, Siksika, Tsuut’ina, Stoney-Nakoda Nations and Métis Nation, Region 3.
The quiver of a leaf, the seamless flow of a stream, the glow in the east as the sun rises – this is language, her language – this is Mother Earth’s poetry.
My name is Jordan (Jo) Scheffelmaier. I am the artist, owner and designer of Weaving Earth’s Poetry, located in Calgary, AB. My earliest memories are infused with creation – from painting, knitting, & leatherwork, to film photography, and so much more.
I have always had a strong connection to the Earth. She is my mentor in this creative process. No matter where I’ve travelled, I am mesmerized by all her tones, textures, and layers. Her expression is poetic. In early 2020, Weaving Earth’s Poetry was born.
I combine metalwork and hand woven beadwork to create jewelry pieces that embody the beauty of nature.
