Jeanette's Profile

About

Welcome to my shop. My name is Jeanette and I’m the owner and creative designer behind AmoreTreasure. I live in a Minneapolis, Minnesota suburb with my husband and two children. My shop offers couture, mostly one-of-a-kind, wedding jewelry from the 1920's through 1960's handmade by me using beautiful high-end antique and vintage jewels. I also offer gorgeous unaltered period jewels.

I grew up in a small town in the Midwest. From my mother, I got my artistic talent; from my father, my love of vintage; and from my Aunt Angela, my obsession with jewelry. I have always been drawn to beautiful objects with a history and have a deep-seated NEED to create. I have been a collector and “artsy” since childhood. I’m told I have a “good eye”.

Welcome to my shop. My name is Jeanette and I’m the owner and creative designer behind AmoreTreasure. I live in a Minneapolis, Minnesota suburb with my husband and two children.

I grew up in a small town in the Midwest. From my mother, I got my artistic talent; from my father, my love of vintage; and from my Aunt Angela, my obsession with jewelry. I have always been drawn to beautiful objects with a history and have a deep-seated NEED to create. I have been a collector and “artsy” since childhood. I’m told I have a “good eye”.

I left a career in software development to stay at home with my children always intending to return when they reached school age but realized that, though I loved my work and missed designing software and managing development teams, I didn’t miss the work related travel or the corporate world.

I opened my "AmoreTreasure" shop in 2010 and love what I do! My friend, Becky, says that I have the perfect job for me because it is a blend of all of my passions – hunting for vintage treasures, jewelry, and creating. The most rewarding part is working with brides from around the world to design jewelry for them and their wedding party. I love seeing photos of their gowns, flowers, bridesmaids' dresses, etc. and hearing the details of the look and feel they are trying to achieve. It’s exciting and rewarding to collaborate with them to design the perfect jewelry for what will be for many, the most important day of their lives.

Besides making jewelry, I like to paint, mosaic, sew, read, hike, travel, Zoomba, garden, dabble in interior design, and antique.
