Jenny Gaynor

Jenny Gaynor, a Los Angeles-based artist known for her airy, almost ethereal glass creations seeks to provide meaning to the things we touch everyday, thus creating handmade pieces of jewelry and art. Using her exceptional skills deriving from years of training under world-renown glass artists in Murano, Italy, Gaynor's vision to defeat redundancy has made her succeed in creating something that is truly unique.

Gaynor began working with glass in 1999 at Tulane University in New Orleans and got her Masters in Art Therapy at Southern Illinois University. She broadened her skills from glassblowing to lampworking, and with an insatiable desire to improve her proficiency, Gaynor spent several summers in Murano, Italy studying with the masters at the Abate Zanetti School of Glass and at Urban Glass in Brooklyn, New York.

In 2003 Jenny used her art therapy background to develop a children's program while in Murano. The program is still part of the annual curriculum at the Abate Zanetti School of Glass today. The marriage of her background as an art therapist and glass artist is beautifully portrayed in the use of symbolism in her art.

Gaynor's past accomplishments also include production glass blowing for Nuance Glass Studio in New Orleans, LA and Third Degree Glass Factory in St. Louis, MO where she also spent two years teaching glassblowing and lampworking.

Gaynor's vision is conveyed through the transparent quality of the glass medium itself. She fabricates all the glass components on her torch using the traditional Muranese lampworking technique and combines them with sparkling semi-precious gemstones. Whether in her lampwork jewelry or newly introduced custom photo transfer vases, her final products are a whimsical, charming, truly one of a kind piece of art.

All pieces are created by hand in Jenny's studio in Los Angeles, California. collection

Comments about CUSTOM BABY FOOTPRINT STAMP NECKLACE:

I got this last year for my first mother's day and it lasted until the friday before memorial day. I was at the drs with my daughter and the pendant fell off of the chain. i was lucky enough to find it, but now it sits collecting dust instead of being worn.

It's A [$]Sticker

By 

from USA

Comments about CUSTOM BABY FOOTPRINT STAMP NECKLACE:

Customers need to know that the footprint is merely a decal that's affixed to the glass (which, in my case, also had obvious imperfections). Uncommon Goods is doing customers a major disservice by not making this perfectly clear, considering that ALL SALES ARE FINAL and unimpressed customers have zero recourse.

      DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT!!!!

      By 

      from North Hollywood

      Comments about CUSTOM BABY FOOTPRINT STAMP NECKLACE:

      Please do not waste your money on this product. I thought it was great when I got it in the mail but I wore this necklace while wearing sunscreen and when I took of the necklace it had ruined the foot print image and desolved it right off the glass. The image is not actually in the glass they just "Glue" it to the glass. They tell you not to shower with it, but never anything about it disolving when you wear sunscreen. [$] wasted on a cheaply made piece of glass on a chain now.

        Comments about CUSTOM BABY FOOTPRINT STAMP NECKLACE:

        I got this as a first mother's day gift for myself! I love it and taking my son's footprints were so easy! I did not get a copy of my son's footprints in the hospital and thought this would be the perfect way to preserve them. It is a bit pricey, and the only downside to the product was that the image is laid on top of the glass rather than in the glass. I just got it so I cannot comment on the quality the print has being laid on the glass, but I would feel better about having spent that much money if it was infused in the glass and I was 100% sure it would not wear off. The work of the artist is wonderful, and I really do hope it lasts!

              Love this necklace!! I was very skeptical about it actually being my child's footprints, but it is!! They ship the kit and get the necklace back to you in a very timely measure!! The chain that it comes on is very pretty also! This will definitely be a piece of jewelry I treasure forever!!

                  I received a kit as a Mother's Day gift and was so excited to get the completed necklace. The packaging was really cute and the instructions were clear. My necklace arrived one week later and was such an adorable representation of my baby girl's footprints! Its really simple and understated. This is a sentimental gift that I will always treasure.

                        I am very unhappy with this product. I could have done this myself for less than $100 and it would have had more than a $0.99 chain. It is not durable enough to be worn daily. Misrepresented, "infused in glass" means more than "printed on glass" to me. This is not an economy you can waste [$] on something so low quality. I will not buy another product from this company.

                          I ordered two of these for mother's day for my mother and mother in-law. The kit arrived quickly and as advertised took just under two weeks to get the necklaces. Still cute but I don't believe they are worth the price. I thought the prints would be in the glass but they are clear stickers on the glass! Very disappointed, feel like I could scan in and print out my babies foot prints and stick the sticker on a clear glass pendent. Just feel you should be warned that it is a sticker on glass the prints aren't in the glass.

                          It's a little expensive and when you give someone something - they shouldn't have to do work to complete it. Especially a new Mom.

                          $100 seems a little high, but I think it's worth it as it's a custom item. I wonder about the amount of detail too...

                          Although expensive, it is priced according to the steps involved and as a one of a kind piece of jewelry that will hold special memories for a number of individuals. I can see it used even as a 'personal thank you' in an open adoption.

                          Love, love, love this! It makes me wish I had children so that I could wear it.

                          A bit pricey, but a very cute and original idea.

                          It is very expensive. Also, it looks almost unfinished. What is the metal around the disc? I don't like that it's lumpy and that it's not really a circle - it just looks a little sloppy to me.

                          How often would one really wear this? I'd spend $25 max.

                          I love this! A GREAT idea, a GREAT gift! Although, for 75.00 you could send a cheek swab in and get a DNA necklace. I love the looks of this but for the price, I almost would rather get a DNA necklace.

                          Is there a way to do this with our little ones that aren't so little anymore? Use a photo or copy of their footprints when they were born? I love this!!

                          Thanks for the feedback, Sarah! The actual pendant does not contain metal. It is handmade glass. The pendant is attached to a sterling silver jump ring and hangs from a sterling silver chain. We are reshooting the photography for this item to provide a more representative image.

                          I love this idea and would consider purchasing it for myself. I would definitely purchase it if it was a little less money ($60?)

                          Are baby feet that small? Keep it in stock for when I'm older. And get more colors than just pink and blue.

                          Might work better as a gift without the custom footprinting part. Just buy for a girl or a boy! Then maybe the price could come down some.

                          cute idea, but like another poster stated ,why does the metal part of the pendant looks so lumpy and unfinished? For the price I would expect a bit more polished look

                          Thanks for the question, Ciara! The pendant is smaller than actual baby feet, because the artist shrinks the image from the print before fusing it to handmade glass.

                          Hello, Voters! There's still a few days left to vote on this lovely necklace, and we're glad to see all of the wonderful feedback that's come in so far. There have been a few questions about whether the artist could make a footprint necklace for an older child, and the answer is yes! Jenny is happy to use a scan of an older footprint (such as the ones taken at the hospital), and she says there is plenty of ink in the ink pad to stamp an older child's foot as well.

                          I thought at first, wow - too pricey - but then I looked at what went into the production plus the fact that it's real baby's footprints and a forever keepsake.

                          Price it at $99.99 - as $100 sometimes frightens a prospective buyer

                          Love the chain, love that it's made in CA..but as a parent w/ 3 children and having previously purchased 'mommy jewelry', it would be much more wearable to me if the kit contained black ink, which would look more chic and go w/ more outfits in the future...

                          Great idea, but $100 is a lot. Also wish the chain was shorter, or there was an option, 14-16" is more my style.

                          This is super cute, but I wonder if you could get the stones that are supposedly on the chain to match the kids' birthstones?
