“All of my work has a creation story. A connection that bonds the work with the wearer. I feel I’ve done my best when the client has a connection with the soul of the work and unites it with their spirit and adventure. The work must have meaning, myth and beauty or it has no real power.”

Jennifer Jesse Smith’s “Jewelry for the Soulful” is an expression of spirit, art and passion. It is fashioned to be felt, not just worn.

At age 7, while backpacking through Europe with her mother in search of rare Venetian trade beads, Jennifer was taken by the sight of her first punk rockers and their sense of personal expression. Later that afternoon at the Louvre, she stood in front of a painting by Michelangelo and announced she would become an artist.

She continued to push her talent to new heights, earning a BFA in sculpture from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Her adventures led her to the motion picture business where she designed medicine warrior talismans for more than 200 warriors.

Blending these two sensibilities - the classical with the postmodern - has been Jennifer’s métier ever since. Her passion, attention to detail, and the originality of her adornments have attracted a wide following. Actors including Colin Farrell, Johnny Depp, Billy Bob Thornton, and comedian Margaret Cho all own original designs by Jennifer Jesse Smith.

Inspired by indigenous metalsmithing techniques from around the world, Jennifer combines her love of sculpture, silversmithing, and the elegance and edginess of rock-and-roll fashion to create original, balanced, wearable art that invokes a sacred connection and collaboration with the wearer.


Although the best way to test the size and fit of a piece of jewelry is to try it on in the store, we know that is not always an option. In an effort to help you choose the piece that is right for you, we have included measurements of each piece on the website. Here is how our measurements are defined:


Finding the right size bracelet for your wrist has always been a tricky endeavor, since, unlike rings, there isn't a standardized, universal sizing chart for wrist size. One reason for this is that we all have different shaped wrists, some of us have round wrists, while others have more oval. Bracelets, like wrists, also have different shapes.

So, while bracelet sizing will never be an exact science, we've done what we can to ensure the greatest chance of a comfortable fit. The best thing you can do if you don't know your wrist size is to take a soft measuring tape and loosely measure the circumference of your wrist at the point you plan on wearing it. Try not to have the measuring tape dig into your skin, as this will result in a smaller than ideal size. Once you have the circumference of your wrist, compare it to the chart below to find the correct bracelet size. If your wrist measures in-between two sizes, we recommend rounding up to the larger size. (ie: if your wrist measures 6.375"- you should shop for size "Medium" bracelets.)

You may want to drill down further on the bracelet sizing to make sure the cuff is a comfortable fit. You will notice on our website that we generally list four measurements for bracelets:

Keep in mind that certain bracelets can be adjusted slightly to fit your wrist, but those with inlay or stones all the way around will be damaged if bent. In any case, it is always best to check with with us to see if a particular bracelet is adjustable.

Lastly, have no fear! If you order a bracelet that doesn't fit, send it back for one that does! We want this to be a positive experience, you should never wear something that isn't 100% comfortable. More on our return policy here.


Sizing belt buckles is pretty straightforward. The height and width are self-explanatory, and the belt width describes the maximum belt width the buckle will fit on.

Concha Belts

We try to include the height and width for the conchas, as well as the buckle (if different), and the width of the belt they are on. The length of the concha belts can be less important, because these belts are often made quite long to accommodate many waist sizes, and then can be shortened to fit the wearer. If you are concerned whether or not a belt will fit you, just ask. We are happy to size most of our concha belts before shipping.
