WHOA! It has been a long time, I know! Sorry, to my invisible, maybe non-existent readers. Well, if you are out there, maybe you might want to know what has been happening over here. I will tell a series of photographs!
First: A trip to France

A month of roaming, taking classes in traditional jewelry making in a small French Village, getting into crazy situations in Paris and most importantly, eating amazing foods!

>>>>just now, i was trying to load travel photos and my camera battery died! more of those to come!

For now: NEW DESIGNS! This collection is really dear to me because some of the material I have used I have had for a year and the ideas I have had for several! I just kept giving up before I got very far. So, I learned that staying with something, seeing it through even when it is  hard and may look horribly ugly, can produce magical results. (sort of a life metaphor huh?) These pieces have recycled Sari material, hemp cord, brass, gold fill chain and some sterling silver.

and...this is only the beginning. A collaboration with painted silk is underway, as well as tons of amazing sari silk pieces. I have decided a little more boldness and color is needed all around.


  1. BEAUTIFUL! I love the mixture of textures, and the color splash is a nice addition to your line. I also want a copy of the sunflower picture, I want to hang that in the house.

    I love wonderfully talented girl :)

  2. Love the new work, Jen - particularly the yellow one, of course!

  3. Yes, love the new work and awaiting the pictures of France. Glad you're back!
