About hennesseyjewelry

Sales 253
On Etsy since 2008

My local community college offered a class for metalsmithing and jewelry making. "Hey, I'll go learn how to make a ring, that could be fun!" It was so much fun that I kept going back, season after season, year after year. Piles of tools and piles of stones began to fill my home, piles of jewelry made with love for myself, my family, and my friends.

I left San Francisco a few years ago to pursue a new life and to create Hennessey Jewelry. As I explore Maine I'll be sharing photos of all that this amazing state has to offer, and it offers a lot! Follow me on Instagram and other sites listed to the right. You'll get to see my new work and lots of baseball pics, too (go Sea Dogs!).

    Owner, My Role? All Of It. Soup To Nuts.

    I personally creates every piece; from one of a kind necklaces and bracelets that accentuate the natural beauty of stones to whimsical animal and Maine-themed jewelry in sterling, copper, and bronze, plus bracelets, money clips, and pendants for men.

I love every piece that I make, and I want you to love it, too.

My design process starts with quality cabochons and gemstones. Each handmade sterling silver jewelry piece is designed around the cabochon, using graceful lines and details to emphasize the distinctive features of the stones.

If you have any questions, please ask. No sure of the size? The color? The weight? The fit? Easier to find out in an email than when the package arrives.
