Jannie Bean’s Heartfelt Gems

With more than 46 years of experience, Jannie recognizes that we all have distinctive tastes when it comes to jewelry. The majority of her work is commissioned by people who long for a wearable sentimental token that pays homage to a loved one, whether it’s made from new materials or heirloom elements.

If someone comes into her store with an inherited bracelet or a passed-down brooch they could never see themselves donning, Jannie asks, “How would you wear this?” She listens as strangers share their memories of beloved grandmothers or late husbands, taking inspiration from these fond remembrances to create irreplaceable keepsakes.
