Jenna Pierson is a Brooklyn - bred, Amsterdam based jewelry designer and maker. Jenna actively makes jewelry in her atelier, as well as teaching goldsmithing techniques at the Vakschool Edelsmeden. She has exhibited internationally including LOOT : MAD About Jewelry in 2013 (Museum of Art and Design, NYC), and more recently SIERAAD International Art Jewelry Fair (Amsterdam 2014).
Jenna's most recent work juxtaposes raw gemstones and minerals using classical basket settings and connections to create one of limited kind, wearable jewelry. Jenna explores tiny mineral shops tucked away in the streets of Amsterdam to source her materials. Each jewel created is dependent on what types of materials she finds on a given day. Due to the nature of the gem hunt in addition to cutting some of the stones herself, no two pieces of jewelry are identical.
