So glad you Found us.
My name is Jenn Breznen. I've worked as a buyer for one of the top fine jewelry retailers in Fairfield County, CT for over a decade.
I've always had a penchant for design and jewelry making. In fact, my career in jewelry and production began as a youth, with several local guild classes. I fell in love - and never looked back.
Since then, I have been hands on in fine jewelry - from manufacturing, to finished goods, custom designs and repair work. I've studied at the New York campus of GIA and welcome each new opportunity to add to my tool belt.
In the spring of 2019, I welcomed my daughter Kennedy, and along with her, an amazing resurgence of my creative spirit -- especially on the days with good sleep ;)
I picked up my tools again and began designing and creating once more. I found myself intrigued by vintage jewelry, found objects, and finding ways to incorporate these and their modern counterparts into classic, yet trending gemstone jewelry designs.
Enter: Mined & Found
From the largest international trade shows, to stateside gem shows, to ma' & pa' antique shops - we leave no stone (yes, we went there!) unturned when it comes to finding the most unique stones and materials out there.
I do hope you'll enjoy looking around the shop for your favorite Mined & Found creations. As always, we're so grateful for you, our friends :D
Lots of Love,
Jenn & Kenzie
