That early love of nature and the beautiful ephemera it creates, led in a serpentine way to a love for creating jewelry. With hammers and files, stones and beads, Jeannine creates pieces that are rustic and yet elegant. Textures echo the graininess of sand beneath one’s feet, the ripple of a river’s flow over smooth rocks, or perhaps, the ridges of a bird’s feathers. Inspiration is in the everyday, right outside her studio door in Vallejo, CA.
