Jen Burrall grew up among women artists, and remembers making jewelry in grade school, back when her childhood ambition was to be an archeologist. Her first jewelry sales were made in the parking lots of concerts, and now she creates her fine jewelry at her studio and boutique in the East End neighborhood of Portland, Maine. Her chocolate lab, Rita, keeps her company in the boutique.
Jen loves tropical beaches and the Arizona desert, and her current ambition is to travel to interesting places, selling her craft along the way. She does what she can to limit the environmental impact of making jewelry, for instance using recycled metal and sourcing fair trade gemstones.
