Jen’s Gems creator, Jennifer Short, is a Juilliard-trained Classical musician and has performed as a professional oboist for over 25 years, most recently as a member of Orchestra London. But her artistic flair extends well beyond the realm of music. Having tried her hand at all manner of visual arts, she has ultimately found jewelry-design to be the most fulfilling.
“For me, the inspiration is glass. I’ve discovered some of the world’s most talented glass-artists to work with, and I use their premium hand-flame worked art glass as my starting point in design. From there, each piece is accented with the finest of materials: Swarovski crystal, hand-made Bali sterling silver and gold-vermeil, precious and semi-precious stones and pearls. These luxury, one-of-a-kind pieces are a joy to create, and hopefully are also a joy for you to wear.”
