Jen Smith

Handmade Jewelry with Original Photos

In 1995 photographer and jeweler Jen Smith decided to combine her interests by creating a collection of handmade jewelry. Jen describes it as a perfect marriage: the jewelry became the frame for the photograph and the photograph took the place of a precious stone. Now based in Ashfield, MA, each piece is made using her own hand-printed and toned photographs that are precisely cut and set into individually cast frames. Most images are original; others are reproduced details from vintage prints.

The miniature photographs are 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.
