Hand-Made Jewelry From Jennie Kwon Designs

In a past life, Jewelry Designer Jennie Kwon was a corporate lawyer, though the 9 to 5 gig was a far cry from her creative roots (Kwon was a classical violinist who once performed center stage at Carnegie Hall).

Jennie Kwon Design BeautycounterThe catalyst for the creative reawakening that led her to launch Jennie Kwon Designs was the birth of her twins—a boy and a girl—who became muses for what is now a comprehensive line of whisper thin rings, bracelets, necklaces, and earrings.From minuscule studs to barely there bracelets, all of Kwon’s offerings are delicate without being twee. The lawyer-turned-metal expert hand-smiths everything in Los Angeles (Beautycounter’s home base), which just sweetens the deal. The first things we’re buying: Kwon’s wispy Modern cuff ring and stunning art-deco slanted emerald ring that are both lowkey enough to wear everyday.
