Rena Klingenberg

Welcome! I’m Rena Klingenberg – jewelry artist, author – and the founder and publisher of Jewelry Making Journal.

Although I often make complex pieces of jewelry, one of my specialties is designing and teaching jewelry projects that look impressive – but are easy to make. My natural way of doing things is to simplify everything.

After years of making and selling my handmade jewelry, I decided to create a website for jewelry artists. I’m thrilled to have thousands of lovely jewelry artists from all over the world, sharing and connecting here at JMJ.
