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 thought about it,and one day six 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.
Since then I’ve made hair flowers out of silk,lace,tulle,and corduroy.Something new I’ve been working on in the past few month’s are bird nest hairpins and jewelry.I recently made some tiny bird’s nest earrings with thin wire and seed pearls,which I will have up in my etsy shop soon.And since it’s fall,I’ve been thinking of getting back into spinning again….I think it would be amazing to try to make a blanket!Maybe one day I’ll be able to weave my own blanket,or even cloth…I would imagine it would take a very long time,though.
I’ve found that I really love making items for weddings and proms,as well.
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 some and sing while working on some jewelry.
