"Design for me is a process of creating playfully graceful visual forms with materials that are inspiring and delightful.
As a practicing interior designer, for both residential and commercial clients, Jennifer enjoys playing with color, combining textures, and contrasting contemporary against traditional. Inspired by natural materials , vernacular architecture and indigenous peoples, Jennifer creates each of her unique pieces, using precious and semi-precious stones, vintage findings and beads, leather, linen, silk and sterling silver. A variety of different hammering, forming, patina and enamel techniques are used to fabricate and decorate the jewelry. Each one-of-a-kind contemporary jewelry piece is individually designed, hand formed and constructed - striving to balance beauty and function. Jennifer studied art and design at the University of Washington and the University of Massachusetts.Shop Jenne's Jewelry Collection
