Jennifer started her Goldsmithing Apprenticeship with Carmen in 2018 and the timing could not have been better.
Jennifer had spent the previous seven years staying home raising her two children and when the two of them finally headed off to school she was ready to start a new chapter. With a biology degree Jennifer never imagined she would end up learning from Carmen Jaeger, accomplished Goldsmith for 20+ years, and fabricating precious jewellery in gold and silver. Many years of travel and the move to Lunenburg with her family in 2014 taught Jennifer to be open to new possibilities and she feels grateful for this opportunity.
Jennifer loves the quiet work time at the jeweller’s bench creating new pieces combined with time interacting with our amazing customer base in our storefront here in Lunenburg. “There is never a dull moment and never a lack of new skills to learn. Taking a piece of metal and turning it into something beautiful to wear is the right mix of challenging and satisfying. Watching a customer walk out of the store with something you have created with your own hands is a truly gratifying experience.”
