Celebrity Spotlight: Wire-Wrapped Cabochons with Jen VanBenschoten

About Jen VanBenschoten

Jennifer VanBenschoten has been obsessed with making jewelry since she was five years old. Along the way, she's worked with seed beads, paper, gemstones, metals, and now wire. She lives in the mountains of upstate New York with her family, their dog, 2 dozen (or so) laying hens and guinea fowl, and 2 Nordic bunnies. When she's not making jewelry, you can find her practicing yoga or shamanic Reiki, reading Tarot, meandering in the woods, or playing one of her ukuleles to raise money for local charities.
