About the designer
Maria Jenny is the jewelry designer and owner of The Gemmed Giraffe. The Gemmed Giraffe is the name of my online store. After retiring from a large corporation in 2008, she became interested in jewelry making when she wanted to fix several of her own favorite jewelry pieces. With a little research and being a self taught, self directed individual, she opened her online studio store. Maria strives to create simple, elegant and classic pieces.
Maria holds a Master's degree in business and completed a course in Jewelry Design from the New York Institute of Art and Design (formerly The Sheffield School). She enjoys gardening, playing tennis, and tutoring children in reading.
