Welcome to Jeni Elizabeth Jewelry
Mixing modern with flourishes of a nostalgic style, Jennifer “Jeni” Fairman is a Maryland-based artist who evokes the beauty of nature in her graceful and unique designs. Her studio, Jeni Elizabeth Jewelry, specializes in one-of-a-kind adornments such as brooches, rings, necklaces, pendants, bracelets, earrings, metal gift boxes and judaica. Drawing on her professional background as a trained medical illustrator, Jeni is able to capture the intricacies of elements she finds in the natural world. Botanicals, insects, recycled materials, and other curiosa are transformed into hand-crafted pieces. Jeni’s work interweaves a variety of materials including sterling and fine silver, bronze and other precious metals, vitreous enamel, gemstones, and found objects. The distinguished cicada-inspired designs are her studio’s signature.
“I am often inspired by a geometric pattern or color palette I come across in nature. Insect wing venation, the colors of a misty fall landscape, or the twisting pattern of a fruit cut in cross-section each find a place in my search for inspiration. I love to experiment and I hope the wearer of my pieces learns a little more about my perspective of natural world and is inspired to seek the same.”
Jeni’s training in metalsmithing started under the instruction of Laurie Savage at the Cambridge Center for Adult Education, near Boston, Massachusetts, and continues today at the Baltimore Jewelry Center in Baltimore, Maryland. After many years of experimenting in techniques such as soldering, electroforming, casting, enameling, granulation, die-forming and etching, she created her first production line of nature-inspired jewelry in 2016.
I create unique custom pieces
Many people ask, “do you take custom orders?” The answer is an enthusiastic, “yes!” There is nothing I love more than creating one-of-a-kind pieces for clients and their loved ones. Birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Valentine’s Day or any special day. I also create pieces to memorialize loved ones and even pets. I incorporate mementos, old photos and found objects to create unique and cherished treasures. It all starts with a photo or a story. I create pendants, necklaces, bracelets, charms, rings and unique boxes. Want to learn more? Inquire on how to get the process started.
