Jennifer Kessel recalls her childhood love of making jewelry. She was a frequent customer of the beading store in Fairport, the town where she has just moved her business.
Today, she has turned that love of beading and jewelry into Jen’s Magnetic Connections, a business that thrives on the ancient practice of using magnets in a therapeutic and holistic approach to health management.
“Some people are surprised that we have such a beatiful assortment of bead designs for both women and men. We can use a wide assortment of beads because the magnetic power comes from the closure, not the beads. Depending on whether you go with a single or double strand, the measurement of magnetic strength is either 7000 or 1400 gauss. If you purchase a piece in a store, it’s usually between 1500 and 2000 gauss, which is not strong enough to help most people.”
Jen and her staff work onsite at the shows and will custom design pieces for the purchaser. When asked about her most unusual request, she laughed, “I was called by the owner of a horse that was injured. I made a double strand cuff for it and they wrapped it around the horse’s leg. I wasn’t sure it would work, but two days later, they called to say they’d already seen an amazing difference!”
“Our products are a non-chemical, non-invasive approach to wellness and pain management. Most people experience relief in 3 to 5 days although for some, it’s a couple of hours and for others, it can be longer.”
The Canandiagua Art & Music Festival looks forward to having Jen’s Magnetic Connections in the festival!
