Jennifer Zeuner Jewelry
Although jewelry designer Jennifer Zeuner grew up with a behind-the-scenes view of the fashion industry—her father owned a factory in her hometown of San Juan, Puerto Rico—she started her career with a public relations gig. After taking leave for motherhood, though, she began honing her jewelry-making skills at home and selling her would-be trademark Jennifer Zeuner rings, necklaces, and bracelets at local boutiques. Things began to take off when celebrities began sporting her pieces, giving Zeuner the momentum to parlay her hobby into a full-blown business. Today her signature dainty, charm-adorned pieces have not only been spotted on dozens more it girls, but countless stylish women around the world.
