about the artist

Jennifer Nielsen Hand-Crafted Jewelry,
Custom jewelry made in accord with your values.

Our jewelry is meant to be worn by people who love “handmade” and the many things that it stands for.
We choose quality over discounts.
We believe it matters how your materials are sourced.
We believe in promoting socially responsible business practices that respect human beings and the environment.

We believe in the power of consumers to choose wisely and effect change through their choices. It will be some time before we can be ecologically perfect, but we will strive to be. We carefully choose the most responsibly sourced materials and demand transparency with our suppliers.

Wherever possible, we make decisions in the studio that support the environment and our dedication to conservation. We continually analyze our business practices and are committed to staying current with the latest in alternative solutions.

Responsible beach pebble harvesting is of the utmost importance and specific permission has been granted to Jennifer for limited collecting on private beaches. We believe an integral part of the pebble harvesting process includes collecting any litter seen during each visit. Stewardship of these special places is part of the job and it’s taken very seriously.

We believe in the importance of giving back and regularly contribute to environmental groups as well as arts & cultural organizations.

We support the freedom to marry and believe that the rightness of that freedom, and the obvious benefits to society, render further discussion unnecessary. 

We imbue these sentiments and values in each piece of jewelry created.

Materials & Such

Our jewelry is lovingly hand-crafted in Portland, Maine. When necessary certain jewelry techniques are completed by a carefully chosen community of specialized craftspeople.

The choice to base the business in an artist collective reduces our impact on the environment and supports our vision by sharing precious resources & bolstering our community. We are artists supporting artists.
