Hi, I’m Jennifer Hinds
ARTIST AND OWNER OF BLUE J JEWELRY
I create wearable art pieces that are handcrafted and one-of-a-kind originals.
I started making jewelry at an early age, and I was always fascinated by the colors and shapes of beads, crystals, semi-precious stones, and metals. Beads inspired my creativity, and I was so passionate about making jewelry that by the time I was just 14 years old, I began to sell my pieces. That was over 30 years ago, and making jewelry is now my profession.
It was always my dream to own a bead shop, and I was fortunate enough to realize that dream. For many years I was able to share the joy of jewelry design with others, and I taught hundreds of beading enthusiasts how to create their own beautiful jewelry. My creations and my shop have been featured in various lifestyle and home publications.
I have added many new techniques to my jewelry designs over the years. I enjoy using a variety of styles and techniques in my pieces. I create pieces that are Vintage inspired, to modern looking, and they can range from casual styles to formal. I use a variety of techniques in my designs that include resin work, bead work, epoxy clay molding, and handcrafted chain maille.
These days you can find me at retail and wholesale arts and crafts shows selling my designs.
