Excited to finally have Jeneca Klausen’s jewelry in the shop!!!!
A Toronto exclusive as she doesn’t sell work outside of her native New Brunswick. The pieces are crafted from sustainable silver and ethically sourced rocks and gems. All so wearable and versatile, the rings can be mixed and stacked or worn alone. Bracelets and necklaces are both substantial and delicate with mystical stones and dripping chain. Earrings mirror sticks and rocks….
Example one are these chain-linked rings which can be worn side by side or stacked on one finger.
Here’s Jeneca’s bio:
“The raw and the refined are partners in Jeneca Klausen’s jewelry.
She lives and works in Saint John New Brunswick, stimulated by the fog and the salt air, the industrial port, the trees outside her studio. Natural things like water, winter and the woods move her, but her work is about more than trees and rocks.
In intricate little gestures, she tackles big ideas, like space, and time. The past is ever present, her own history, and further back, too, to the origins of jewelry-making. She is well-trained but restrained, respecting that early simplicity.
Her jewelry conveys an easy sense of space, an awareness of the living architecture of metal and stone worn on the body.
A balanced asymmetry is her trademark.
Age and its pleasing ravages interest her. Sometimes she mimics its effects, blackening metal as though it had been buried for years. But it is not all dark art – certain pieces are shot through with light, glinting glances on polished surface. She plays with her materials, croqueting shaggy lace from delicate metal chains.
From the earth, and her imagination, come her ornaments: smoky Arctic diamonds, charred silver hearts, jagged crystal, cloudy quartz, iridescent pyrite. Jeneca leads raiding parties on her personal collection: an ornate bone bead, antique jet from her grandmother’s jewelry box.
She does not have a production line. Each piece is made by her. Every one unique.”
