Jeanine Payer

I have been a fan and collector of Jeanine's work for several years and am excited to be showing it in the store this season. She really does hand engrave each piece- when I hold 2 of her bracelets with the same quote/size of metal, there is a slight difference in each of the handwriting. At this point in her successful career, it would be so easy for her to cast the pieces and mass-produce them, but she holds true to her original premise and realization of the integrity in her designs.
