Jennifer Blasko

Jewelry by Jennifer BlaskoJennifer has been a classroom teacher for many years and began making jewelry in the year 2000. Her initial designs involved beaded pieces and wire-wrapping sea glass and objects she found on the beach. Jennifer quickly evolved into metal forming and creating unique sterling silver links and pendants. She started her jewelry business in 2002.

Many of Jennifer’s pieces are inspired by shapes she observes in architecture and in nature. She has also been greatly influenced by the artwork of her mother Joan Blasko and various artists’ work she has seen through her lifetime such as Alexander Calder, Henry Moore, Frank Lloyd Wright and Robert Motherwell.
Jennifer hand makes each jewelry piece in her studio located in her home and has taken several metal-smithing classes to expand her abilities.
Jennifer often sketches ideas as well as explores silver using various jewelry making techniques to help develop each design; offering customers simple but elegant pieces they can wear on many occasions.

In addition to working with metal, Jennifer also likes the tradition of pearl knotting. She creates several designs with freshwater pearls, knotting each pearl with silk thread. She continues to make beaded designs that incorporate semi-precious stones, freshwater pearls, shells and Swarovski crystals in patterns that enhance the beauty of these natural elements.
