J+I Jewelry was formed in 1999 by Jessica Rogal. For 20 years each piece has been handmade in her studio in the heart of Philadelphia, PA. Self taught in the art of jewelry fabrication, her fascination with metals formed from a schooling in geology and a desire to work with her hands. Combining precious metals with gemstones and pearls she seeks to create designs which are organic and have an artisanal essence. The studio is filled with the sound of hammers and sanders as each piece is skillfully crafted by the talented team of J+I jewelers.
