Since May is all about Pennsylvania and it’s about time for a jeweler again here on AOTM, I’m giving you guys Janine DeCresenzo.  She is a fellow Tyler alum and her work is beautiful.  I especially love that she uses fur as a design element.  You can tell by the names of her different lines that she is influenced by natural forms – Cell, Pod, Fossil.

You can probably guess why I like her work.  I love the textures, design, and unusual parts she uses.  Aside from fur, she also has elements in the cell series made from piano ivory.  Go to her website and delve further into her work, and make sure to catch her at one of her upcoming events or representing galleries.
