Keirsten Giles' Profile

About

Welcome to Lune! My name is Keirsten. I am a self-taught jewelry designer living in northwest Montana. I am also a legal secretary, but that doesn't sound nearly as cool.

I spent a year making truly atrocious jewelry for myself to wear, haphazardly cobbled together from the meager supplies available in my tiny town. Nevertheless, I decided I had talent, and decided to spend another year acquiring some actual skill.

At the end of that year there was too much jewelry lying around to wear or give away, so I pondered a more clever (and fiscally responsible) way to get rid of it. And Lune was born!

The world is my studio. I make jewelry in my living room. In my kitchen. In my bedroom. In the other bedroom. On the porch. At work. At the park. On a boat. At the beach. At the campground. And even in my car (but…

The world is my studio. I make jewelry in my living room. In my kitchen. In my bedroom. In the other bedroom. On the porch. At work. At the park. On a boat. At the beach. At the campground. And even in my car (but not while driving). Some of my best work was done in the driver's seat of a Toyota Yaris.

I've always had strong creative urges, but I can't paint, draw, sculpt, sew, compose music, dance, or play an instrument so it was a little frustrating. I am a damn fine actress, but I just didn't have the contacts to make it to the big time so I studied French instead.

Imagine my relief when I discovered I could make jewelry. Or at least I make stuff that looks like jewelry. I think it's good. I hope it's good. It looks OK to me. I hope I'm not the only one that likes it. (If I'm not, don't tell me, OK? I don't have any other creative options).
