Hello, I’m Jen…

… from Chico, CA. I’m an artist and youtube/instagram educated metalsmith. Meaning, I’ve taught myself how to make everything through research, trial and error! I also have a 2 year degree in Studio Arts where I learned some drawing and photoshop skills. At the moment, I’m waiting for the right time to continue my education while I build up my website and raise my one and only son, Jules. I’ve been selling my soldered silver, mixed metal and gemstone creations since the end of 2018! I’ve been blown away by the positive feedback and enthusiasm from people on Etsy, Facebook and Instagram and in my town! I’m always working to improve my skill and aesthetic with new tools and techniques, and I hope that shows!

I’ve always enjoyed working on creative projects, it keeps me busy and inspired, and that keeps me out of trouble! I spend a lot of time working, meditating and practicing self-care. I have a not-so-secret obsession with astrology, Vedic and ancient knowledge and holistic health. These topics are an umbrella for my persistent interest in the non-physical, enlightenment, meaning and, overall, a search for well-being and truth. I really enjoy meditating on, and researching things that grow my sense of context for: why and what is life, and what for? When I’m not deep in the rabbit hole (I have to make art just to crawl back out, you know, lol) I’m making vegan food, spending time with my beloveds and savoring natural spaces, out and about, as often as I can.

Oh, and I’m on social media a lot! 😉 I’m an introverted-extrovert and social media really suits me! As a result, I really enjoy marketing, selling and sharing my work online. I do try to take my goods into the world sometimes, when the weather is good and my feet don’t hurt from long work hours (haha). Thanks for hanging out on my site and looking around, I’m always creating new things to share and I couldn’t do that without you!

If you want to support my work and see what I’m making in real time, you can find me spreading the love on Instagram @msjenamaze, on my Facebook page, on TikTok & on Pinterest! Check out what I have in the shop!
