From the heart of the Smokies, I bring you...
A wife, mother and jewelry artisan, Jennifer of Merkaba Jewelry grew up in New England where she became the nature lover she is today. She says her inspiration is all around her. I believe it since she now lives in the Smokey Mountains of western North Carolina!
Jennifer uses only the finest materials when creating her gorgeous jewelry. She uses quality gemstones, freshwater pearls, artisan lampwork glass beads, polymer clay beads, sterling silver, and Swarovski crystals.
Jennifer also makes the most amazing scarves and scarflettes. She uses Lion Brand Homespun Yarn; super soft and snuggly! I am a proud owner of a few Merkaba pieces, including earrings and a fabulous scarflette.
I believe I first "saw" her in the many treasuries she was featured in on Etsy. I then got to know Jennifer from the Dawn's Boys Charity in late December 2007. We are now team-members of the Etsy Angels Street Team and I am happy to consider her one of my friends.
If you make your own jewelry, well Jennifer can help you there too. She opened up her Bead and Supply Shop- Merkaba Beads on Etsy at the end of January 2008. She's doing exceptional there as well!
Here are just a few pieces Jennifer has made; most are available in her Etsy Shop!
