About the Artist

Jennifer Yogel
jewelry artist

Through the eyes of a graphic designer, I visually read things by balancing color, symmetry and proportion. And as a jewelry artist, I imagine subtle curves, angles and textures that grow like vines to compliment one’s face, neckline and skin tone.

Through weaving, wrapping and hammering with precious metal wire, then incorporating pearls and gemstones, I transform my designs into elegant, lightweight wearable art.

A few words about Viking Knitting…I am fortunate to have learned this technique through the patience, kindness and encouragement of my Danish friend and fellow jewelry artist Hanne Bernstein.
