something of an artist. I design and create various types of jewelry
including traditional bead and wire, as well as copper enameled and
chain maille. I also work with other copper enamel pieces as well as
stained glass. You can se e some of my work in my facebook album
entitled “Artwork.”

Jennifer Smith
Cambria, CA. USA,



My name is Jennifer and am the owner and jewelry designer of

I have been learning and creating jewelry since High School. I
walked into a bead store one day, came out with a $100 worth of
treasures and that’s how it all started. :slight_smile:

I have become increasingly better over the years and now wish to
make a business of it. I work with beaded jewelry off all different
natural gems and stones, swarovski and glass beads and anything else
that catches my eye.

Perhaps one day, I can quit my “day job” and enjoy this as a living!
