About Jennifer King Designs
When Jennifer was seven years old, her family in New Orleans sent her a grocery bag full of Mardi Gras necklaces. Instead of playing dress up, she ripped them apart and created her own necklaces and bracelets.
Coming from a family of artists, her world has always been full of color, creativity, and exposure to many forms of art. She was born and raised in Baltimore and has a B.S. Degree in Marketing from University of Baltimore. After her three children were in school, she began creating jewelry as gifts for family and friends.
Jennifer King Designs was launched in 2004 when her simple designs using glass beads and base metal were being sold at a local boutique in Mt. Airy, Maryland. Over time, those simple designs and materials evolved into a jewelry collection of sterling silver, gold fill, pearls and gemstones. In 2007, Lilac Bijoux, an upscale boutique in Annapolis held a “Next Hot Jewelry Designer” contest, which Jennifer won. Her designs can be found at Lilac Bijoux and Simply Beautiful Boutique in Frederick, Maryland. Baltimore Magazine featured her in August 2007 and December 2008. Through her online shop at Etsy.com, she has sold her designs worldwide including Australia, Paris, Spain, Canada and Japan.
Brilliant gemstones and shiny metals coupled with her artful eye result in designs that are simple, elegant and a bit rustic. Sterling silver, 14k gold filled and semi - precious stones are featured in jewelry designed to be worn with your favorite jeans or little black dress. Nature inspires her- especially the beauty of the countryside outside of her home studio, the mountains, and the sand and sea where she spends most of the summer.
Her attention to detail and handcrafted quality makes each piece unique and a keepsake to treasure.
The power of jewelry is amazing ~ it can be such a simple yet profound statement of commitment, beauty, confidence, love and faith.
We hope your Jennifer King jewelry brings you happiness, beauty and many compliments!
