Jen Burrall

I am pleased to announce the arrival of jewelry by Jen Burrall to the gallery! Featuring richly textured sterling siver with semi-precious stones, freshwater pearls, amber, paua shell, bamboo coral, seaglass, and beach stones, Jen's designs are bold in color and texture. Her forms are greatly influenced by nature - pictured here is a "Nest Ring", "Floret Choker" and "Twisted Root Earrings".

Jen works from her studio in a busy culturally diverse neighborhood of Portland. Her formal training in metalsmithing began at the Maine College of Art in Portland, Maine. She also studied metalsmithing at Montana State University in Bozeman, Montana. This education was followed by a four year apprenticeship with a nationally recognized Jewelry artist.
