    This pendant was the first item I purchased from Jenn's collection. My daughter loved it and the quality and craftmanship were outstanding. Since then I have purchased two more necklaces equally impressive in every respect.
    Great shopping experience!

    I purchased the hammered hoop earrings for my wife and she loved them. The packaging was done with a special touch and you can tell that time and care is put into these pieces of art. They shipped almost immediately and I have nothing but good things to say about the workmanship and quality.

Jewelry Artist and Creative Spirit

My jewelry making journey began with my insatiable desire to constantly learn and create things. Ever since I was a small child, I loved getting my hands onto anything I could be creative with. I have always been a curious individual with a thirst for knowledge, and this includes learning many different art mediums. In 2005, I began sculpting, specializing in custom polymer clay character dolls and fairies. I was amazed (still am!) at how much fun these were to create. Switching mediums for a little change of pace, I began painting in 2013. My artwork consists of mostly trees and landscapes, since I am always drawn to nature.

The summer of 2016, I took my first serious jewelry class, and learned metalsmithing techniques. My eyes were opened to a brand-new world of creative possibilities. I wanted to learn as much as I could so that I could create wearable works of art. My jewelry is designed with the beauty of sterling silver, copper, peppered with little bits of vintage, combined with gemstones and texture. I stay true to my spirit, drawing inspiration from Mother Nature.

Some of the vintage pieces include die stamped components repurposed from an old Providence, RI jewelry factory. The history of the pieces span from the Victorian era through the 1980’s, and were stamped in this actual timeframe to make costume jewelry. I like to think that some of these pieces will transport the wearer to another time, to appreciate the history of the era it came from.

I love the magic of stones and the textures of nature. Combining details of metal pieces paired with soft textures is something that always seems to come natural for me when designing jewelry. Adding a bit of history into the jewelry adds interest and sentimental value. Eventually I would love to combine all of the techniques I have learned and incorporate them into some really unique pieces. I am devoted to constant learning as it feeds my artistic spirit, and builds momentum to keep creating.
