Jayne Davenport's Profile

About

Janalli's Fine Jewelry Designs saw its birth several years ago after I purchased a bracelet at a local department store. It broke after about two days. Frustrated and in a bit of a snit, I decided there had to be a way I could make my own jewelry that would be just as affordable & of a better quality. And so it began....

The name, Janalli, is a creative combination of Jayne (my name) & Melanie (my best friend of 33 years). Melanie taught me basic beading techniques and has been patient, kind, & encouraging all these many years.

Being a practicing catholic, I believe it is important to give glory to God in all that we do, so in 2010, we introduced a collection of rosaries which is rapidly expanding.

Being a practicing catholic, I believe it is important to give glory to God in all that we do, so in 2010, we introduced a collection of rosaries which is rapidly expanding.

Each finished piece is inspected by my 2 daughters, Storm & Summer~Rose, and my mother, Martha. Sixteen year old Storm, who doesn't care much for jewelry, is more of a "rock hound" and spends more time approving the stone than commenting on the actual finished piece. If she gives me anything other than her usual, "Yeah, it's okay", I listen hard. Fourteen year old Summer~Rose loves practically every finished piece but almost always has a suggestion, "Mom, you should've used a red stone here instead of blue". Her suggestions are often incorporated into other designs. She has a wonderful eye for color. My mother has four levels of critique: 1) Can I have it? 2) I like it. 3) Somebody will love it. 4) I don't like it. If Mom says she doesn't like it, the whole project is scrapped, & we have a "do-over".

Jewelry making, for me, has evolved from a personal endeavor after a frustrating experience into a very rewarding creative outlet. I strive to be informative and deliver a quality product. Should you have any questions about a piece of jewelry that are not answered in the listing, please feel free to contact me. It is my hope that at least one of my pieces will become one of YOUR pieces and that you will enjoy wearing it as much as I enjoyed creating it!

May God Smile on You Always!
