Jeannine Rosenberg – Jeweller
My jewelry pieces embrace asymmetry and surface texture. They reflect my upbringing in the Southwestern US and my travels in Mexico. My style is always evolving.
About the Artist
Last year was the year Jeannine was going to expand her boundaries as an artist and participate in not ONE but TWO Studio Tours, as well as some local Farmer’s Market events. The idea was to broaden the sales and recognition for her silver pendants, necklaces and bracelets. Jeannine recently moved back into the area and was looking forward to the restorative and social aspects of the Studio Tour experience. She loves nothing more than talking to people about the stones she uses and the dual process of designing and making jewelry. She likes to say, “ask me about a stone and you will get an impromptu Geology lecture!” Covid-19 shut all of that down. And that’s OK.
Lock-down has provided Jeannine with ample time to focus on her skills as both a jeweller and a marketer of the things she so loves to create. The quiet is deafening but when Jeannine comes out of this she will have a better understanding of how to accomplish both.
Jeannine knows people are worrying about paying their bills and is extremely grateful for the custom orders she received at Christmas time. Keep them coming!
Working on jewelry is a luxury many people cannot pursue and she is deeply grateful for the opportunity. Jeannine expects, or perhaps fervently hopes, that when we have put the pandemic behind us, people will have a renewed need for beauty in their lives and they will see her jewelry as a humble provider of that.
In the meantime, Jeannine peruses the internet looking for unusual stones. She cuts, saws, uses fire, melts and hammers things (sometimes smashing her fingers!), sets stones and polishes finished pieces with the hope that she can make someone happy with one of her jewelry creations.
