Jeanie Schlegel Merrick's Profile
Hi! My name is Jeanie. My main shop on etsy is JeanieSchlegel, and this one is where I decided to showcase my work of a darker nature, and where I can freely unleash the 'horror junkie' part of me.
I am a family/self taught artist and have been in business since 1992. When I started, I was making gothic and Victorian jewellery in the Toronto subculture scene, and over the years it evolved into alternative bridal, Renaissance, and insane fabulousness.
This is my full time job and life long passion! My family owned and operated a jeweler's and opticians store from 1847 - 1921 (photos of the shop can be seen on my facebook page). Eventually, the odds, ends and supplies were passed to me which I now share with you in each piece I create.
My inspiration comes…
