bio-photo-300wJennifer Rosen discovered her love of making jewellery March 2007. She did a basic stringing and an earring class, then a basic introduction to wire jewellery. She enjoyed making jewellery from what she learned but she still wanted to learn more. She learned some things on her own and through Youtube as well as the other jewellers she met for advice but wasn’t always sure what to ask or look for.

In 2012 she found a school called Sheffield (Now called New York Institute for Art and Design) and signed up for their Jewellery Design Course.

She finished the course in March 2013 and she not only got her certificate from the college, but she also had the first line of JenStones!

Since then, she has joined the Toronto Bead Society, sold at craft shows and online at www.JenStones.ca, and taught at home and at the TBS bead fair.
