Hanus Jewelry pieces are individually designed and handcrafted by Jeannette Wartelle, who has lived in the West Seattle Junction neighborhood of Seattle for almost 20 years.
She is inspired by all things simple, elegant and bold with sometimes a slight edge and her process is mostly unplanned until an idea comes to mind and then goes with it.
With her love of working with fire from her torch, she is almost mesmerized watching metal melt into her almost design. Then with her hammers and other studio tools, she goes to work with the idea that came to mind or perhaps a custom piece that she does quite frequently for customers.
Even though some pieces may look similar, no two are identical and that is the main idea behind Hanus Jewelry, individuality.
