I was introduced to Jennifer S Pak through an amazing mom group (tribe) that I am a part of here in LA. The mama of two invited me into her studio earlier this week to check out her collection; and to talk about the ways motherhood has influenced the direction of her line. And what is that direction? Gjenmi (jhen-MEEH) strives to produce not just jewelry but keepsakes, reminders of the cherished moments and people in our lives. Jenny hopes for her creations to hold a special place in the heart of the wearer. Rather it’s a Mother’s Day gift of an engraved pendant, a re-crafted heirloom from a beloved family member (she does custom work) or a well deserved gift to yourself; the pieces are intended to be mementos. The way Jenny’s personal pieces are mementos of her own family. As a mom she strives to make jewelry that is not only symbolic and meaningful, but durable. She tests the pieces out herself and although aesthetically delicate they have survived both baby and toddler hands. Another major plus, her price points. Jenny aims to offer pricing that is accessible, with the majority of her pieces falling below the $500 price point (some even less than $200). Pretty great for locally made, plus conflict free materials and stones. Gjenmi is influenced by femininity and feminine strength, inspired to produce keepsakes and dedicated to offering fair pricing. Also, the pieces are gorgeous and made right here in Los Angeles.
