Jennifer Farnes
Owner, Master Faceter, Graduate Gemologist
Jennifer Farnes was born, raised, and attended college in Montana. As a child, her brothers would take her adventuring into the mountains in search of rocks, fossils, and crystals. From sapphire hunting and digging for garnets, to panning for gold and collecting minerals, her love of the outdoors and rock-hounding never subsided. In 2003 she accepted an opportunity to learn the art of stone faceting, which expanded her love of rocks into a new career. She is a full-time Master Faceter, providing custom gemstone cutting and lapidary services to jewelers across the country. She has continued her education in the jewelry industry by receiving recognition as a Graduate Gemologist.  Jennifer is the heart and soul of Revolution Jewelry Works and provides expertise in all aspects of custom jewelry design.

Caleb O'Leary - Fine Jeweler, Motorhead
Caleb O’Leary
Fine Jeweler, Fabricator, Motorhead
Caleb was born and raised in Colorado Springs & is a kickball enthusiast and self-proclaimed motor head (owning an average of 7 personal vehicles). Several years ago his older brother introduced him to the jewelry industry by showing him how to size a ring at the trade shop he was employed with.  Caleb mimicked the process, sized a ring, and had a job in the same trade shop the very next day!  He has always been a people person, but working in a trade shop meant the same tasks day after day.  Since joining Revolution, he has realized the one thing missing from his jewelry life was getting to see surprise and joy in peoples faces upon receiving their jewelry in dazzling finished condition.  He especially loves hugs from clients when an heirloom has been restored to it’s original glory.

After high school, Jeremy worked as a technician for a computer store that built custom computers for businesses where he was found and recruited into defense contracting in 1998. He has spent the last 25+ years continuing to work in technology, and uses his skills to maintain all of the systems and state-of-the-industry technology at Revolution Jewelry Works.

Freya - Shop Mascot, Retired Greyhound
Shop Mascot, Retired Greyhound
Freya was born on Patriot’s Day into a long line of champion racing Greyhounds. She knew from a very young age that running was fun, but she couldn’t understand why all the other dogs wanted to eat a toy rabbit. While she was among the fastest dogs in her age group, she was retired at the young age of 18-months because she didn’t have the prey drive to win races. Really, she knew there was more to life than running in circles! After attending an obedience course with inmates in the Colorado State Prison, she was adopted into Revolution Jewelry Works. She has been a cheerful member of the team since 2014. She likes to think, “No one can have a bad day when there’s a dog to pet!”
