Featured Artist: Jennifer Damrow
Back for 2020, The Gem Shop is proud to feature lapidary artists who create extraordinary art that highlight and celebrate the beauty of the mineral world.
Jennifer Damrow resides in Madison, Wisconsin as a full time jewelry designer and owner of Exclusive Inspirations. She works with her husband and partner Eric Radant to create unique designs from their hand cut gemstones. Each gemstone is hand selected and/or collected and cut by both Jennifer and Eric. Each is carefully selected for beauty and artistic allure.
Jennifer uses Argentium Sterling Silver and 14/20 14kt gold filled wire to create her one-of-a-kind designs. All of her stones are unique and come from numerous locations from across the globe! Jennifer and Eric are fortunate to be able to work closely with the owners of gemstones mines to bring you the best selection and prices in the Midwest.
Jennifer grew up on a farm south of Mosinee where she learned about the gem, mineral and fossil world from her father, Paleontologist Dan Damrow. After growing up with the business, and developing a love for unique stones, Jennifer decided to start her business in 2002 with her father. Great successes followed, and she soon developed her own business, Exclusive Inspirations, in 2007.“I hope you enjoy and appreciate the uniqueness of each stone and cherish it forever. These are some of the real treasures of our planet.”
