I make jewelry for the modern bohemian: artists, yogis, professionals, mothers, teachers, servers, live-music seekers, tea drinkers, deep thinkers & all those who appreciate comfort & style. The best compliment my jewelry gets is hearing how many compliments my customers get when they wear my work.
MY STORY ~
I always knew I wanted to work with my hands- to make a living from my hands... I've had a love of and fascination with jewelry for as long as I can remember. My path revealed itself to me during my senior year at the University of Vermont, where I discovered PMC (Precious Metal Clay) and met renowned jewelry artist Celie Fago. For 9 years I was her apprentice and teaching assistant, and I traveled with her around the country and abroad.
I've been selling my jewelry locally in Vermont for over 20 years now and my work is in 75 shops, galleries, general stores and yoga studios. My pieces have been included in exhibits in the US, UK and Japan. My work has been featured in top jewelry magazines and several books.*The JK symbol that I use is not only my initials, it is also the Chinese symbol for "Forever".
My designs fuse old and new, industrial and natural, urban and ethnic. I work with high quality and ethically-sourced materials and recycled silver including: PMC (Precious Metal Clay), 24k gold, sterling, copper, brass, stones, found objects, upcycled leather and (ethically sourced) feathers.
I'm so happy to have 3 part time production assistants to help with all the heating, hammering and assembly as well as my brother, Jason, as my full time studio manager. Come visit us at my beautiful studio and showroom in Burlington, Vermont. We're open Tuesday - Saturday 10-5.
