Artist of the Month: Jennifer Swett

Jennifer Swett is the owner of Sixpence Jewelry located in New York, New York. Learn more about Jennifer and what she has in store below!

“I create handcrafted glass pendants for cathedral and museum gift shops using photos of stained glass windows, as well as various antique images. While creating a line of Frida Kahlo pendants, I began reading about her unique dress style. This inspired me to seek out silk ribbon to match the colors Frida wore, and discovered Class Act Designs! Since then, I’ve begun integrating them into the rest of my line. They are so lovely that my customers frequently ask if they can purchase  the ribbon…without the pendant!” -Jennifer Swett
