Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Fusing antique with space age, balance with symmetry, organic with an industrial twist. Starting with a simple sheet of silver, designs are cut, formed and fabricated, evolving into wearable art. Hand cut coral specked with bezel set stones compliment pierced silver forms. The coral she uses is old, found years ago by her Grandma on one of her many trips. Janine has always been inspired by aquatic life and feel more relaxed when near the water. Using the coral in jewelry is her ode to the sea, giving it another life. Jewelry ages with the wearer, gradually picking up patterns from their life. She wants those who wear her jewelry to be comfortable with it, and to make a statement.
