Jennifer Fisher is a jewelry designer who loves cooking, spinning and running along the West Side Highway near her Tribeca home, which she shares with her husband and two children. Her eponymous line started when she was looking for a simple piece to commemorate the birth of her first child, and when her search came up empty, she decided to make her own. When family, friends, and strangers alike admired the piece and asked where they could get one of their own, she knew she was on to something. Her line is now sold at boutiques across the country and around the world, including some of our favorites like Barneys and Otte here in NYC.
