Hi! I’m Jolene.
I have learned jewelry fabrication and repair through a jewelry store apprenticeship, classes at New Approach School for Jewelers, as well as various workshops. Now into my 9th year at the bench, I work full time out of my studio in Batavia, New York where I produce one-of-a-kind and small batch jewelry.
I strive to create jewelry that is focused on quality and durability for everyday wear. My design process is mostly intuitive, a combination of sketching and arranging shapes and gemstones around until they feel just right. I am influenced by clean lines and elegant patterns in the world around us, from natural patterns in leaves and trees to wallpaper and fabrics, iron work and architecture.
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 a different gemstone or metal type.
