A jewelry designer for more than 30 years, Allen Jacobsen has seen his pieces presented in ways he never could have imagined. It was more than 20 years ago that he created a bracelet his mother loved so much she displayed it in her store’s window. Little did she know an editor from Vogue would see it and be just as impressed. Jacobson’s work has appeared on the cover of McCall’s magazine and been worn by celebrities such as actress Cheryl Ladd.

Jacobsen, who works alongside his wife Mumin, are inspired by the beauty, shape, and designs that surround them. “Each piece is a creative blessing and becomes our favorite until the next one is created,” he says.

Jacobsen is always creating unique pieces. Meet him at an upcoming Sugarloaf Craft Festival to view his latest creations along with hear the stories beyond other successful pieces.
