PRLog - Feb. 18, 2012 - NAPLES, Fla. -- Noted designer: Jodi Henry at Petunias of Naples
Jodi Henry’s jewelry is a unique reflection of simplicity at it’s best. All of her pieces are hand made of solid 14kt gold and semi precious stones. The pieces are lightweight and easy to take from day to night. They look great by themselves or layered with longer necklaces. My design preference is a modern feel mixed with traditional to create a simple design that will last for generations.
I have always had a passion for jewelry that is distinct and unique and this passion brought me to start a career in jewelry design.
Through shopping for certain items and not finding the perfect piece, I started to dabble in sketches.
I was given a wonderful gift to study under a local jeweler to learn the basics and it bloomed from there. I focus on lightweight because I don’t like an earring to drag my pierced ear down. All the earrings that I found tugged on my lobe and eventually ripped the piercing down. I know you ladies out there can relate to that!
My goal was to bridge the gap between the vermeil and the pricey solid gold pieces. There was a gap in the marketplace for solid gold pieces that were affordable. My goal was to create a line of jewelry that most could afford and had a unique flair to it.
The result is a Sexy, Distinct, Modern yet Timeless Unique line of Jewelry
My idea of jewelry is one part inspiration and two parts expression of feeling. Here is where I explore the artistic inspiration of color and sleek geometric shapes formed by hand from superfine repetitive alignments of the warm glow of pure 14kt gold to create timeless, unique and modernly sexy handcrafted jewelry.
