Monica Jansen was born and raised in St. Paul Minnesota.
The story her parents love to tell is whenever they went shopping she headed straight to the jewelry counter to admire their offerings. This started when she was 5 years old.
“I have always had a deep love for jewelry and gemstones. Jewelry to me is art that can be worn and shared with others outside your home. It can change the look of an outfit from average to extraordinary and it has the ability to really project a woman’s personality.”
