About

Hallo! Ich heiße Kelly, and I'm an Indiana native and Ohio convert who loves to make jewelry for herself, her friends, and the world of Etsy. I've always loved beautiful jewelry, and it occurred to me one day that instead of buying my gems mass-produced, I could design and create my own jewelry - jewelry that I truly loved to wear and fit who I am. I knew I couldn't be the only one like me in the world who loved simple, colorful jewelry, so I decided to open an Etsy shop to share my creations.

I am currently studying to be a German teacher, but I love to make jewelry and take photographs in what little free time I have. My creations are inspired largely by the area in which I live, my travels around the globe (both past and prospective), nature, and bright colors - I am absolutely WILD about color. I love making simple pieces that are versatile enough to be worn everyday or for special…

I am currently studying to be a German teacher, but I love to make jewelry and take photographs in what little free time I have. My creations are inspired largely by the area in which I live, my travels around the globe (both past and prospective), nature, and bright colors - I am absolutely WILD about color. I love making simple pieces that are versatile enough to be worn everyday or for special occasions.

Every piece is made by my own hands of course, which also means it's made with a whole lotta love and care. I buy only quality materials for my creations - something I would be proud to wear; something others would be proud to wear. Each piece comes gift wrapped in a tiny little box tied with ribbon because even if it's just for you or for someone else dear to you, it's still a gift from me (plus, unwrapping boxes with ribbon and getting at what's under that tissue paper is so much fun!)

My shop name comes from a mix of things -- my childhood nickname, Kelly Canoe, my studies in German, and my heritage, Native American and German. The first K is of course for my first name, and "Kanu" is the German word for Canoe - the ü in my shop banner is added for an extra touch of German flair.
