Hello,my name is Jennifer,I’m the girl behind Jenny’s Treasures or JennysTreasuresForU.I design and make wirework,beaded and textile jewelry and accessories.
It’s really funny how I got started making jewelry,because I had never really though about it,and one day four years ago I was thinking about different options for making money,and jewelry popped into my head.So I decided I wanted to try that out.
I’ve always liked being creative,I spun yarn,crocheted,knitted,and sewed before that.It took me a while to even step into my local bead store,since we didn’t having a working vehicle at the time.But one of my friends gave me a bead kit from Costco for Christmas a year later ,and my another one of my friends got the same kit at the same time,and we both made jewelry together.
Once I finally got to go to the Bead Merchant,I got a little bit of gold craft wire,and made my second pair of earrings,braided wire hoop earrings with seed beads,which I am still making today,and is one of my most popular designs.I got some more wire,and just started playing around,and that’s how I ended up loving wirework.
As to what I am inspired by,I really get inspired by everything.The beads,clothes,music,movies,nature.I really love music,and often listen to and sing while working on some jewelry.
My goals for my etsy shop is to add some more items,though not too many,cause I think that can get overwhelming,I’m going to be making more hair accessories,and to always improve on my photos.I’d love to get a camera,the one I have I’m borrowing;mine that I bought from a friend broke 🙁 Another thing I thought I would like is photography,and even though I had only used a digital camera a few times before joining etsy,I find that I really enjoy it.It’s a lot of work,but I love taking beautiful pictures.I may do wedding photography someday,but it will take me a while before I’ll be that good.I started another blog mainly for my photography a few days ago.If you’d like to see it,it’shttp://www.likethegold.wordpress.com
I’m also making hand sewn dresses,starting out for myself,and if it goes well,I plan to open another etsy shop for that. I’ve been really getting into the whole bridal thing(probably because a lot of my friends have been getting married),so like in the jewelry,I’ve been focusing more on that.And when I make dresses,I plan on some of them being bridesmaid and wedding dresses.
