I am a Magnetic Jewelry Designer from Fairport, NY. I had a childhood love of jewelry making. My friends and I would walk to town any chance we got, to visit our favorite bead shop so we could pick out just the right beads to make into pieces for friends and family. Today I have turned that love of beading and jewelry into Jen’s Magnetic Connection, a business that thrives on the ancient practice of using magnets in a therapeutic and holistic approach to health & wellness.
I was first introduced to magnetic jewelry at a local craft show, where I found a bracelet design that I like, but wanted a matching necklace; then I found a necklace I liked, but wanted a matching bracelet and then by the third piece, we were designing pieces together. About a month later, I was at my first show.
I have been making designer magnetic jewelry pieces for over 14 years. I love putting together combinations of different types of beads – whether natural gemstones of jaspers & agates & amethysts, or hematite & silver, or Swarovski crystals & pearls, or iridescents & mixed metals – and designing them into single, double & triple strand bracelets, beautiful necklaces, lovely anklets and of course, matching earrings as well. Each piece is hand crafted using different bead & gemstone combinations and most pieces are designed with some 14kt gold beads or silver plated beads & findings for accenting. Every piece is finished with a sturdy, therapeutic grade, bio-magnetic clasp. The clasp makes putting on and undoing easier than fiddling with a toggle or traditional clasp.
I sell my designs at trade shows, events and local Arts & Craft festivals. I do about 35-40 weekend shows a year, mostly in the Rochester, Buffalo & Syracuse areas of NY, with some in PA and NJ. The events I attend are listed on the Events Page on my website www.JensConnection.com . I also sell my designs on my company website. Each piece is built as the order comes in, so customization is definitely available.
