Brenda Burdette was in need of a way to relieve her stress as a television news reporter/anchor. She turned to yoga, which was a good start, but she needed more. One of her editors told her about a jewelry-making class, which quickly gave her the serenity she was looking for... Jewelry-making became a meditative way to deal with her stress and soon she was hooked. The beauty of the stones was soothing and brought some much-needed Zen to her life. That's how Bren'sZen Jewelry & Brenda Burdette Fine Jewelry began.
Brenda started with simple beaded pieces, but soon her passion for jewelry-making took her across the country and around the world to learn from some of the most acclaimed jewelry artists.
She uses ancient jewelry-making techniques in modern ways to create pieces for women who want beautiful, organic looking pieces that can be layered for that California "beach chic" look.
Bren'sZen Jewelry is made with recycled gold & silver whenever possible. The pieces are designed by Brenda in Newport Beach and are handmade in Downtown Los Angeles by jewelry artisans from all over the world.
Bren'sZen Jewelry is committed to helping end child sexual exploitation by donating to ECPAT (End Exploitation, Prostitution and Trafficking of Children for Sexual Purposes) and Freedom Firm.
Throughout the ages and across many civilizations, stones and gems have been used to heal and to protect. Bren’sZen Jewelry can’t promise cures, but we do believe in the transformative power of beautiful jewelry and positive thinking.
Each of our jewels has a description of the healing properties long believed to be associated with them.
