Jennifer is a Rhode Island based, self taught artist and jewelry designer. She has spent many years learning various mediums such as drawing, painting, sewing, and creating new objects from thrifted ones.
A few years of dedicated practice to soldering, using the tiffany stained glass method, led to working with copper, brass, and other metals to create one of a kind magical objects. All jewelry is made with lead-free solder and is safe to wear!
Jennifer has a passion for hunting for vintage items, such as old tins ( tv trays,tea,decorative ) to use in her work. It is lightweight and upcycled! Vintage finds are a big part of her work and it adds to the Fruitcake Flair.
