About

The journey of MK Wind began with a passion for body adornment by artist Shelley Koscielniak. The concept of her work is minimalism … artistry in subtle form … less is more.

She is intrigued by the aesthetic of how a culture implements ornamentation, using embellishments to change a look, an appearance, a perception. Her ever-changing designs are timeless in structure and form, each piece is created to appeal to the eye as well as the soul. From the precious metals to the individually selected reclaimed resin and exotic wood, the essence of her jewelry captivates the mind and spirit. With expressive subtle colours and clean sharp lines, these designs harness energy and artistry.

Shelley graduated with honors from Columbia College Chicago with a BFA in Fine Arts and furthered her studies at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Her years as a fine art curator have also played a large role in the evolution of her work. Each piece is hand fabricated in her Los Angeles studio.

... choose your body embellishment as you would a companion,
find comfort and harmony in wearing these pieces ...
