Mica and sterling earrings by Jennifer Lawrence Bennett.

The work of jewelry artist Jennifer Lawrence Bennett can be summed up in one word: WOW. Jennifer, the inspiration behind Di Luce Design, is an innovator whose work I can’t get enough of. Today, I visited her airy, white-walled studio in Seattle, which was on an open-studio tour, and there was such a superabundance of modern/industrial/elegant jewels, I couldn’t stop smiling. Jennifer allowed me to scoop up several intricate pieces to take for the Moss + Mineral opening next Saturday, June 7 – despite a line of customers milling around, just waiting to get their paws on them. Maybe it was the crazed-cheetah look in my eye, but she is so gracious, and so fun, she simply packed them up with the easy assurance that there was more where that came from…

Jennifer studied at Parson’s School of Design, in New York City, and pursued her interests in liberal arts as an undergraduate at Manhattan’s New School for Social Research, and Eugene Lang College. In addition to her B.A., she received an M.A. in Education through Seattle’s Antioch College, specializing in their combined masters and teaching certificate program. ~Lisa Kinoshita
