Jennifer Lippman-Bruno doesn’t just create things
out of yarn, she communicates with each and every
skein. An aspiring designer since childhood, Jennifer
took a bold leap into the design world by giving up
her studies in Pre-Med to study jewelry design.
After graduating, Jennifer soon became the design
director for Angela Cummings Fine Jewelry.
Even though Jennifer was working with the very
best in this field, another medium was calling.
Jennifer’s communication with her materials is born
out of her fluid and organic approach to design,
something she calls “three-dimensional design”.
“I don’t go into a yarn store with a definite idea.
First, I fall in love with the yarn, and then it
determines what it will become.
The ideas go straight from my head to my hands.”
Jennifer also makes an effort to avoid reading
pattern books and knitting magazines in an attempt
to keep her own design instincts free from
This unique approach leads to equally unique
designs. Her patterns that she describes as
“conservative with a twist”, are incredibly wearable
and very modern.
