25 YEARS IN JEWELRY
Jewelry Symbolizes all of the Special Moments and People in your Life!
Hi, I'm Jennifer, Your Jewelry Design Concierge.
I can't wait to have the pleasure of showing you the most amazing ways to keep those special moments and people in your life so that they are treasured for generations. This unique jewelry experience is fun, easy, and all of my clients are always so excited when they start their jewelry remake project.
I can't wait to get to know you, your style and what you would love to create, but first, here is a little about me...
From being different to finding my Passion
As a kid, while everyone else was in little league or dance, I used to take art classes and actually won some awards. I knew I always wanted to design, but never knew what.
Designing, balancing colors and shapes, and seeing patterns in everything around me, has always been automatic for me. I would actually dream about designs and work out the details in my sleep. I'm one of those people with a pad next to their bed :).
Years later, my journey of trying to discover myself, my joy, my passion, brought me to train at the Gemological
Institute of America (GIA) in Santa Monica, CA.
Through this immersive school, I found my passion for
diamonds, gemstones, and jewelry manufacturing.
And after I inherited jewelry from my grandmother and started to remake her jewelry to suit my style better, I knew that I wanted to bring this everlasting feeling of remembrance and love to others.
Do you have jewelry that you don’t wear anymore wasting away in a box somewhere?
I am sure during your lifetime you have collected jewelry from gifts, self-purchases, passed loved ones that may be broken, worn, or just not your style anymore. You may be thinking, “So what if it sits in a box, there’s no harm…maybe I can give it to someone later.” Then years pass and you find it again and discover no one wants it either.
So what should you do with these treasures? How can you get value from them? How can you enjoy them NOW instead of waiting or wasting time and money?
Yes, your old jewelry pieces are treasures!
They hold meaning, memories, love, symbolism, stories.
And, through my decades of jewelry experience and transforming unworn pieces of jewelry, my clients are always so excited by the result. They love that they are getting more than a new jewelry piece they will cherish…they are getting jewelry they would love to wear! A piece of fine, one-of-a-kind jewelry made just for them, making the unimagined possible.
WHAT WE DO
What Inspires you?
Do you ever look at nature and all of its beauty and become so awe-stricken?
That was me with gemstones and the miracle of their creation by this planet. I don’t want to get technical, but it is truly magical!
And even more magical is the amazing emotional feeling my clients get from their remake jewelry experience.
The experience starts when we first meet and start to talk about what you want remade.
When I meet you & see your old jewelry, I have a vision of what the new piece will look like; What shapes are best, what colors will go together, and the overall style that will suit your unique look.
Then I start designing that vision on the computer to see it come to life. And, if it doesn’t look right for you, my vision changes and I start playing with the stones you have to form a few design options that you can choose from.
Creating that new jewelry piece is like figuring out a puzzle whose picture shows a vision of beauty and a new piece that is perfect for you and the story you want to tell
