Ashley Schenkein has always had a tendency to question the status quo, which was the primary motivator that led her to begin her journey in jewelry design. She was working as a Spanish language medical interpreter in Jackson Hole, Wyoming when she noticed some jewelry at a local boutique. These seemingly uninspired designs were the inspiration to design a few standout creations on her own. Within a week they’d purchased Ashley’s new gemstone-filled designs and she discovered the passion that drives her creativity.
Inspiration for Ashley Schenkein comes from worldly inspiration– marketplaces, architecture, museums and natural surroundings. While her travels help to define each season, it is her customers that are her biggest design inspiration.
“When a woman feels good about her appearance, she inevitably feels better about herself.” – Ashley Schenkein
