Jen Burrall, of Jen Burrall Designs, has announced that she will be relocating her jewelry business to Congress Street on July 1st. Currently, her jewelry boutique and studio are located at 76 Washngton Avenue. She will be occupying the space vacated by Bakery on the Hill.
Burrall attended the Maine College of Art where her interest in methalsmithing was sparked. A four yhear apprenticeship with a local jewelry designer gave her the building blocks to design her own work and start a business. In 2007, Burrall opened the doors to a retail/studio space in on the East End of Portland. This location is where each piece of elegant jewelry has been hand sculpted. That is up until July 1st when she opens her new Studio and Boutique.
Burrall who used to travel extensively out-of-state to shows to sell her line said that she has gotten tired of the travel and wants to do less of it. She sells lots of her work on the Internet and wants the increased exposure that she will receive in her new location.
