Tina St John: Studio Tour Ten Artist

I’ve been creating jewelry since a very young age. My mother, also an artist but specializing in gourmet cooking and interior design, enrolled me in jewelry-making classes. I fell in love with the art and enjoyed learning from my teacher, for whom I later apprenticed. After traveling to India, South Africa and parts of Europe, I decided to start my own jewelry business. I launched Tina St John Designs in the early 90’s.

After many different ventures, I simplified my line and way of presentation. My goal is to design jewelry that provides a sense of well-being while making a classic statement. I work in 14kt gold, fine silver, sterling silver, 18kt gold-filled, bronze, semi-precious stones, freshwater pearls and swarovski crystals. Each piece is hand crafted one-of-a-kind. I specialize in custom work both new and re-design.

Meeting the Studio Tour Artists: Tina St. John

Tina St. John


“My one-of-a-kind creations are an inspiration from my heart. Each piece is designed to be classic and simple, as well as to create a feeling of well-being. My jewelry is handcrafted in fine silver, sterling silver, gold-filled (18kt overlay), swarovski crystal, semi-precious stones and freshwater pearls.

I’ve been designing jewelry since I was a young teenager. My mother was also an artist specializing in interior design and gourmet cooking. She enrolled me in a jewelry class with a designer from Denver, Colorado, who I later apprenticed with.  Further on, after traveling to India, Europe and South Africa I decided to start a business of my own. Tina St John Design was launched in the early 90’s. With much trial and error, and several jewelry designing ventures I have simplified my line and way of presentation. My goal is “to design jewelry that provides a sense of well-being while making a classic statement.

I am developing a line that incorporates vintage and antique beads to create new modern pieces. I will use your jewelry, and/or my found beads etc and recreate new treasured jewelry. Contact me to learn more about this service and to see what I’m creating from old into new. This eco-friendly and green line is my latest venture.”
