"I love starting out with one idea, and in the process of making it, having it completely morph into something else I never would have dreamed of. Being open to change, mistakes, and engaging in the process has always been an important part of my work. "
Jenny Windler is a jewelry maker based in the San Francisco Bay Area. All of her work is cut, formed, soldered, enameled, and finished by hand in her home studio. Her love of functional objects, industrial design, and architecture blends with daily observations of chaos, decay, and the natural world to inform her jewelry designs.
She earned a BFA from Western Illinois University in 2001 and an MFA from Colorado State University in 2007. She developed an interest in enameling after attending a day-long workshop with enameling extraordinaire Harlan Butt.
