A jewelry lover since birth, Jennifer Merchant has always had a flair for the fashionable and dramatic. Layering on as much jewelry as her little arms could carry, Jennifer was no stranger to over the top glamor at a young age. With her tastes now refined, Jennifer designs her own line of high quality artisan jewelry that is innovative and bold.
Bold, fashion forward, and artfully designed, Jennifer Merchant’s innovative jewelry is a refreshing alternative to the status quo. Inspired by a mix of art deco and contemporary art and design, Jennifer seeks out alternative materials to transform into wearable works of art.
“My passion is to create; preferably something that does not already exist. I hunger to invent, to explore, and to learn.”
Jennifer has been making jewelry for over 11 years, and studied Metals and Jewelry at the Savannah College of Art and Design. Since 2005 she set her sights on starting her own jewelry line, and in 2010 she took Jennifer Merchant Design to the next level. She now runs her business full time out of her studio in Uptown Minneapolis, meticulously handcrafting each and every piece.
