Jenny Reeves

Jenny Reeves jewelry designer

Jenny Reeves loves to play outside and make jewelry inspired by the California landscape. It's earthy, modern, and edgy yet sophisticated.

When she moved to San Francisco from Philadelphia she had many jobs as a lifeguard, accountant, muralist, and even a bartender before discovering her passion for metalsmithing. One class was all it took. She loved using ancient techniques to craft modern treasures and loved metal for its durability and renewability.

The landscape continues to provide her with constant inspiration. Her jewelry tries to capture that unique balance of natural vs man-made; structured but wild; traditional yet modern. Jenny Reeves jewelry is designed for individuals who are rugged but refined, wild yet civilized, and who love modern life but have a connection to nature and to the past. Each piece is crafted for everyday wear from recycled precious metals and thoughtfully sourced stones.

Jenny studied classical goldsmithing at the Revere Academy of Jewelry Arts where she taught since 2011. She also supports Made by Survivors, a Non-Government Organization (NGO) that rescues, educates, and employs survivors of human trafficking and slavery.

When she's not in the studio you will find her hiking, camping, enjoying live music, and having fun with her favorite people.

Jenny feels fortunate that she could start her jewelry business when recycled metals and conflict-free diamonds were the norms. Over the years increased transparency has brought even higher standards of accountability and better, greener business practices.
