Class Instructor: Jenn Parnell Kirkpatrick

Jenn Parnell Kirkpatrick

Jenn Parnell Kirkpatrick graduated from the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) in 1999 with her BFA in Jewelry and Metalsmithing. In 2010 she received her MFA in Studio Art (Metals and Jewelry concentration) from Towson University. She founded Jenn Parnell Designs in 2000. Her work has been shown in national and international galleries, art shows and exhibition throughout the US, and published in several books. Jenn has been teaching all levels of jewelry classes since 2004 at the Baltimore Jewelry Center, MICA, and the Corcoran College of Art. Jen joined the team at SIlvera Jewelry School in 2019.

Jenn creates pieces based on organic and biological patterning and forms. By using a variety of techniques, she creates sculptural, colorful, and intricate pieces that are interesting both worn and off the body. Intrigued by the fluidity of the metal when hammers are applied, she enjoys stretching and reshaping the metal into her vision. Her jewelry is expressive and unique, at the same time very contemporary and retaining the wearability inherent in the definition of jewelry. Each piece involves exploration to make, and she hopes that those who wear it experience that same joy and discovery each time they put the work on.
