Jenny Schlecht

Jennifer, a New Zealander and Tom Schlecht, a New Yorker, met while traveling independently in Kathmandu, Nepal in 1972. They continued their travels through India, Afghanistan, Iran, Turkey and back to Europe. Inspired by their interest in fine and ethnic jewelry and a desire to work with their hands, they decided to make their own hand-crafted jewelry after their return to the United States. In 1974 they lived and studied with artisans in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, and attended the Instituto Allende for intensive jewelry classes. Since 1975 they have been working out of their gallery/workshop in Southold, New York.

Their pieces have an elegant simplicity that is classic in style and extremely versatile. The quality of the stones they use is exceptional, and their workmanship impeccable. Tom and Jenny offer jewelry that is timeless, tasteful and truly beautiful.
