Work by Jenn

"Who takes my classes? We’ve had everyone from undergrads to people taking some time off to retirees. Since we’re in Washington, we get a lot of people with established careers in the government or in business, looking to explore an artistic talent later in life."

Always the approachable teacher, Jenn posts videos for jewelry making students to reference outside of class.

"I want my pieces to be just as visually interesting and intriguing by themselves, in a sculptural sense, as when they are being worn."
