Jen Pleasants

Northern California designer Jen Pleasants hand sculpts her creations in a renovated goat shed topped with a living roof. Surrounded by crystals inside and redwoods outside, she creates pieces that are an external reflection of the beauty, magic, and power that we each possess on the inside. The organic nature of her designs coupled with the inspirational messages behind them, gives each piece a one-of-a-kind, meaningful feel.

Jen's jewelry emphasizes positive affirmations, invokes 'girl power' and is crafted with recycled metals and ethically sourced stones. Jen and her business partner, Amy Salisbury hope that by wearing their jewelry, people will be inspired to 'show the love' for themselves, for others and for the Earth.

Take a studio tour to see where Jen's jewelry takes its shape!

        I saw this necklace, and my hubby got it for me for a gift. Even though I wear bulky jewelry, I love the delicate chain. I always buy artist jewelry, and this fits right in with my handmade crosses and long strands of seed pearls when I pile on several. It also is strong enough to stand on its own. The chain can be lengthened or shortened to fit any neckline so I wear it daily. In the shorter length, the bar wanders a bit sideways during wear, but I like how that adds to the handmade quality.

                      My family gave this as a gift to my mother who was going through a major move and personal and career changes. She wears this necklace regularly and has let me know that it encourages her on a daily basis.

                      It's beautiful, simple, and understated. The metal's finish is a little rustic, which I love. The length is just right; sits below the collar bone but not too low.

                        Jen Pleasants' "She Believed She Could So So She Did" ring won our customers' hearts, and we're hoping the necklace will do the same. Does it have your vote?

                        This might become popular if she used shell or wood or acrylics with assorted shapes and fonts.

                        I like the thought, but I think the shape needs more work. Also, I guess for me, the quote is a little bit facile. It isn't always that simple.

                        I think legibility would be an issue. I don't want others having to get super close to my chest just to read it! Not a big fan of the shape, either. Would prefer a floating pendant. Maybe with "she thought..." on the front, and "and she did" on the back?

                        The stamping was done too forcefully and is hard to read. Otherwise, it's an attractive pendant and a great phrase.

                        Rachel

                        LOVE the shape. Would like etching or design on the outside and wear the words against skin. Would definitely consider buying this if the price is reasonable.
