jen smith photo jewelry

In 1995 I first became inspired, as a photographer and jeweler, to combine my interests by creating a collection of Photo-Jewelry. The two mediums seemed a perfect marriage--the jewelry became the frame for the photograph and the photograph took the place of a precious stone found in most jewelry.

Each piece is made using my own hand-printed and toned photographs that are precisely cut and set into individually cast gold, silver, and bronze frames. Most images are original, others are reproduced details from found and collected vintage prints. The miniature photograph is sealed in with a durable, acid-free varnish that will protect the image from water damage and fading for an unlimited amount of time. Every piece is hand finished and constructed with fine metals &, pearls and semi-precious stones.
