About the Artist


Jennifer Yogel
jewelry artisan

“A well balanced design takes into consideration color, texture, symmetry and proportion."

My current collections feature a variety of delicate wrapping, weaving, and Viking Knitting techniques blending sterling silver and 14k gold fill wire, gemstones, and pearls.

I’m drawn to the simplicity of gentle curves, sharp angles, and distinctive texture. Each lightweight design is intended to complement the curvature of one’s face, neck, and skin tone.

I consider myself very lucky to have learned the Viking Knitting technique from my dear friend and fellow jewelry artisan Hanne Bernstein.
