Gypsy Coast Jewelry by Jen

Jewelry for Your Journey

I make each piece with my own two hands. I use traditional methods of silversmithing. I design, saw, pierce, file, bend, solder, set, and polish. I also photograph, market, list, package and ship. I am a small batch metalsmith. I may make one piece, I may make four—but no two pieces will be exactly alike. I relish in the Wabi-Sabi of things. The perfect imperfection. You might see teeth marks from files or a mark from my wedding rings as I am bending and hammering a cuff around a mandrel. These let you know that I am not a machine-I am a maker. If a piece is calling you—grab it— I might be able to create something similar for you, but never exact.
