Jenna Prestegaard is a native of Pennsylvania who currently makes her home in Knoxville, Tennessee. Her fascination with chainmaille began early- with bedtime fairy tales. Working at Renaissance Faires gave her a close-up look at chainmaille both as armor and jewelry. Earning a BA in Religious Studies gave her the opportunity to explore the role of jewelry and costume in the human experience of the Sacred. She believes the flowing, organic designs of many of her pieces reflect her deep interest in the religious experience.
