My name is Sennin, I live in Berkshire County, western Massachusetts. My jewelry journey started with some copper wire and an abandoned pair of pliers. Twisting wire quickly became an obsession. Not long after taking up wrapping I opened an Etsy shop in 2012 with some of my wire work. As that progressed I had an opportunity to get some exposure to other methods of making jewelry in a class at Studio Jewelers in NYC. After learning a little bit about fabrication I started purchasing tools that I needed so that I could continue to practice at home. With my school and work schedule, I was only able to spend a little bit of time making jewelry each week, progress was slow at first.
I started working full-time making jewelry in 2016. Making jewelry has become my passion and daily enjoyment. I personally make and photograph all of my jewelry. Since 2016 I have made immense progress which has enabled me to meet my goals as an artist and maker! Thank-you very much to everybody who has helped me get here! I hope to continue to provide the best work I possibly can!
I have a continuous desire to learn and improve my jewelry and gem knowledge. I am currently completing Gemological Institute of America's Graduate Gemologist program. I have a degree in Environmental Science which has inspired me to work on making my business and all its aspects a sustainable operation. I try to live a sustainable lifestyle and make conscious decisions with sustainability in mind. I am pro-active about recycling and I support Organic, Non - GMO and Local businesses! I am constantly finding and implementing new ways of improving my sustainability and reducing my carbon footprint on a personal and business level.
This is my catalog and portfolio, thanks for considering my work!
Mountain Spirit Jewels is my DBA name. It is also the name of my Etsy shop that I started in 2011. If you see this mark on your rings its my official makers mark. My Shopify store Sennin Esko Jewelry is a new project I started in 2020, all my reviews and listings were imported directly from my Etsy shop. Thanks for reading about my brand!
I honestly prefer purchases be made here on my Shopify store than on Etsy because in recent years Etsy has introduced extortionate transaction fees. Use the coupon code OPENING2020 for 5% off your entire purchase, custom listings excluded, thanks!
