Slender Double Collage Earrings
Photographs are encased in jeweler's resin, with gold-fill ear hooks.
Jen's jewelry is limited edition and one-of-a-kind art jewelry made with her own or collected photography, fine metals, and resin. Says Jen, "I created my first collection of Photo-Jewelry nearly 20 years ago. This idea came to me as a direct result of my art school education at Pratt Institute, where I majored in photography and my work experience as a studio assistant. My own photo contact sheets and jewelry materials from my job as a jeweler's assistant literally collided on the work table before me. I could easily envision my photographs taking the place of a gem or stone found in many jewelry designs."
