ABOUT JEN STOCK DESIGNS
Jen Stock Designs are carefully created with the intent to help remind the wearer of being mindful and seeing the good in themselves, in others and in life. Her designs are vegan, which means no silks, leather or pearls are used. Cruelty-Free.
All jewelry is handmade by women in New York.
Jen's inspiration for her designs comes from her practice of yoga for more 28 years and the spiritual aspects it embodies. Beaded pieces are all assembled by hand using a French Knotting Technique with a knot in between each bead, giving the pieces more fluidity and producing a higher quality piece of jewelry. The beads are knotted tightly with nylon and the “kinks” will loosen up as worn. Macrame Jewelry is handmade using a special round design unique to Jen Stock Designs.
The Om is a symbol rich in meaning and depth that represents the divine in each of us, as well as our interconnectivity.
Jen uses an authentic graffiti-like design of the OM symbol in her ©God-dess Collection to evoke a modern view of the symbol.
The Mala is an ancient, traditional wooden necklace made of 108 beads used to keep track of how many times a mantra or name of a deity is repeated while meditating. As the inspiration behind Jennifer's beaded pieces such as ©My Mala, each one has 108 beads or a number divisible by 9. The wood is made from Boxwood, which is an Exotic wood from Brazil and very slow growing, which makes it very hard. Jennifer refers to it as the "Diamond of Wood." The dark brown beads are referred to as "Brunette" and the light wood beads are referred to as "Blonde" and are all carved exclusively for Jen Stock.com into beads in 4mm, 6mm, 8mm, 10mm, 12mm, and 14mm.
All Boxwood beads, Buddha's and OM's are made exclusively for Jen Stock Designs by Master Wood Carvers.
The Buddha is a symbol of what Buddhists believe is the "enlightened one," someone who can truly see how the world works. The Buddhas used in the Buddha Bracelets and in ©My Mala are also carved from the same Boxwood as the beads.
With these designs, Jen hopes to not only provide an authentic fashion staple, but a powerful spiritual influence as well.
