BESTeam Feature - Jewelry By Jaynemarie

This week's BESTeam feature is on Jewelry by Jaynemarie.
Handmade Sterling Silver Amethyst Filigree Earrings

Jaynemarie was born at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas.  Her family moved to Maryland when she was 6 months old....which would be the first of many moves growing up as an "Air Force Brat" and having to move every time her father was transferred all over the U.S.  She even remembers some years attending 3 different school!  All this moving, however, gave her an appreciation for her country and especially the diversity we enjoy in our geography and culture.

Because she wasn't allowed to play with her brother's toys growing up (ya know, the train set, the chemistry set etc) she started designing clothes and jewelry for her Barbie doll, and from there when to designing jewelry for herself.

When she finished college with a degree in Electrical Engineering, she moved to Silicon Valley in the San Francisco Bay Area, which is now where she calls home.  It is also where she met her husband and has worked in the electronics industry for many years.

She started seriously making jewelry because she would see something she liked, but wanted it a little different.   And when she did do this she received so many compliments on her designs and from there her business grew.

In order to fulfill her vision for her designs and business, she has taken many courses at local stores and jewelry schools. She is continually working to improve her knowledge of jewelry design and construction, so that she can make fine pieces with the best materials available.

She loves to play with color, sparkle and texture in designing her jewelry. And uses high-quality materials because they give a rich texture and depth to her designs.  She has the most fun when she can use metals, gemstones and pearls to come up with something new and exciting.  And she does custom work and would love to make something spectacular just for you!

Here are just a few things that caught my eye...but you should check it out for yourself!!

These Sterling Silver and Pearl Earrings are my favorite :-)
