About Oohjacquelina & Team
Handcrafted Bridal & Fashion Jewelry
Oohjacquelina is a handcrafted jewelry design company based in Brooklyn, NY and New England. It was created by artist Jacquelyn Wells in 2010 right before graduating from Northeastern University where she studied music and business.
With a small team we quality handcraft every piece with hypoallergenic metals. Our ear wire and dainty chains are either pure sterling silver or 14K gold fill, ensuring hypoallergenic and non-tarnish materials. Our tagline is "quality handcrafted to last" because we want you to wear our jewelry for many years to come, not just a few weeks.
Hand hammering, wire wrapping, freshwater pearls, semi-precious gemstones, and thread earrings are our specialty.

An artist her entire life, Jacquelyn studied Fine Art and Art Metals throughout high school and college and attended a year of fashion school at the School of Fashion Design on Newbury St. Boston, MA. After beading and hand making headpieces from her Great Aunt's jewelry as a child, she started creating more intricate work. After taking various metal-smithing classes at studios such as MetalWerx, Sanctuary Arts, and Fitzgerald Jewelry School, she began a unique line of jewelry hammered, drilled, shaped, and hand cut from high quality metals. She gains inspiration from world travel and has worked with several non-profits to raise money for their causes.
Bridal Jewelry is Oohjacquelina's specialty. Hair combs and Stud Earrings are made from sterling silver and 14K gold filled wire wrapping pearls and Swarovski elements along with some vintage finds from markets around the world. She was a bridal consultant at a high end bridal boutique for 5 years. There she learned what brides were looking for by helping them plan their special day. She has had the honor to work with designers from JLM Couture and Alvina Valenta, Sadoni, and has had here jewelry worn by models from ti Adora by Alvina Valenta at several New York International Bridal Week shows and featured in their look book photo shoots for Fall and Spring of 2015 and 2016. Grammy winner and American Idol judge Kara DioGuardi, rising star Jesse Kahnweiler, Medal of Honor recipient, Gloria Steinem, and actresses Jena Malone and Marisa Tomei have also rocked her jewelry, to name a few!
She was recently featured as a Designer to Watch at the 2022 DC Miami Fashion Week with Flying Solo.
