Born in Heidelberg, Germany and raised bouncing between Southern Maine and Yonkers NY, Jennifer Walker decided she wanted to be a jeweler as a teen while taking Metalsmithing courses at what was then The Portland School of Art in Portland Maine. She attended Parsons School of Design in New York City for two years and received her B.F.A. in Metalsmithing and Jewelry Making from Maine College of Art. In 1997 she moved back to New York and worked in New York City as a local One Plumber for 9 years. After moving to St. Louis Missouri in 2008 for her partners job, she started Jenny Walker Jewelry- a line of work inspired by color and natural forms that is accessible and focuses on making the wearer feel beautiful.

“Like mostly everyone, I am inspired by nature. The colors, textures and forms found in just the plant world alone provide endless material for me to create from. Im also interested in works of art from antiquity and the way that humans have found universal beauty in certain shapes and how we repeat those forms repeatedly into the present day. I love the sentimental and personal nature of jewelry and hope that each of my pieces can become a part of someone’s story.”
