austin monthly: jaime jo fisher

Back when I was browsing Etsy for engagement rings, the work of Jaime Jo Fisher was definitely at the top of the list (I eventually wound up with a beautiful ring set by Kate Szabone). Jaime Jo is an amazing--and totally adorable--jeweler here in Austin who creates rings, necklaces, and earrings from a variety of unexpected and found materials--like shower curtains, pool toys, vintage glass beads, yarn, and sequins.
