Jamey is a good friend to us here at greaseralley and we want you guys all to meet the guy behind his killer work. Jamey is from Meridian, MS, and has had a love of creativity all his life. He is a very skilled, talented craftsman who is the creative force behind HandmMade Seat Co. LLC, HandMade Media LLC, Jamey Jordan Signature Series LLC, and HandMade Art LLC.
Jamey graduated from Meridian High School in 1997 with an emphasis in Drafting Technology and from Meridian Community College in 2001 with a degree in Drafting Technology. He furthered his education in the automotive field by completing the Collision Refinishing/Street Rod Body Fabrication program in December 2002 at the Laramie, WY, campus of WyoTech. In the fall of 2003 he completed a nine-month program at Tulsa Welding School, Jacksonville, FL
After graduating from WyoTech and Tulsa Welding School, Jamey worked in several body shops in Mississippi and Louisiana, using the skills learned at Wyo. It didn’t take long before he realized that there was so much more that he could do.
In 2007 a friend asked him to build a set of seats in a bomber style. After that Jamey was hooked, realizing the creativity that he could put into developing his own style. Using a Mittler bead roller and dies that were available, he started HandMade. In the summer of 2012 Mike Mittler and Jamey joined together to create the JJ Signature Series product line of bead rollers and dies. The product line is now at over 60 items.
Last year Jamey had the opportunity to go to Blairsville, PA campus of WyoTech to work with students in different programs, teaching them the uses of the Bead Roller and the new Dies that he has developed.
His work has appeared on West Coast Customs, Powerblock, Search and Restore, Muscle Car, Stacey DavidGearz Speed Channel and Hot Rod Garage. You can also find him demonstrating his art at SEMA in Las Vegas, Goodguy shows and Art Galleries.
