Hi! I’m Jolene.
I never imagined I'd be a jeweler. I had dreams of being a painter and having gallery shows around the country. It didn't quite work out that way, but art and making things is such a large part of who I am and seems to find a way of emerging in almost everything I do. I arrived at jewelry making through a natural progression over the last several years. It wasn't even on my radar when I was offered a position in a jewelry store. How could I resist working in a sparkly, beautiful place?
I was given the opportunity to learn jewelry repair through apprenticeship and classes at New Approach School for Jewelers. Now into my 7th year at the bench, I have taken the leap to work primarily from my studio as a designer and jeweler!
My design process is a combination of sketching and arranging shapes and stones around until they feel just right. I live for the magical moment when things align. I am influenced by patterns in the world around us, from wallpaper and fabrics to iron work and architecture.
I value fine craftmanship. Each one-of-a-kind piece is made by hand with attention to quality and durability, and I will stand behind every piece I make for life!
Please don’t hesitate to reach out to me if you have any jewelry questions, design ideas, or want to personalize any piece I have with color or metal type.
