Jill Fargen

Jill Fargen grew up in an incredibly creative environment, getting much of her inspiration from her mother who was always fashioning clothes, making baskets from seaweed, and exploring new artistic outlets.When Jill got engaged in 1995, she knew she wanted a custom, one-of-a-kind wedding ring.  She met with a talented local jewelry artist who made her the ring of her dreams.  That was the moment her love affair with jewelry and gemstones began.Building on her friendship with the artist, Jill worked at her gallery for four years and pursued her interest by taking several jewelry fabrication classes at Revere Academy of Jewelry Arts.  Now, Jill travels to gem shows and local beads stores to find semiprecious gemstone beads and cabochons that inspire her one of a kind handcrafted jewelry.Her love of the ocean, nature and gardening uniquely shines through her color and texture design choices.Jill lives in Sacramento, California with her husband, son, dog and three cats.
