I gave this to a friend for a big birthday. She loved it. It's clean, modern, sculptural, natural, and sophisticated.

Such quality work and customer service! I went back and forth on what style I wanted, but I am SO glad I chose Kendra's design. My fiancé was ecstatic when he saw the final product. I would recommend this shop to anyone.

About

Quality craftsmanship with a modern edge

Metalsmith Kendra Renee specializes in unique, textural wedding bands. Each perfectly-imperfect band is custom made in the finest precious metals. They are designed to wear beautifully over a lifetime of adventures.

Kendra's work is designed to delight and inspire, and be striking and cool, an aesthetic developed over a lifetime of making messes and then making art out of cleaning them up. It’s minimal, but demands a double take. It’s easy to wear, but never ordinary. It’s a little piece of what makes you you—in fact, you might feel naked without it.

In her own words:

"My jewelry comes from my deep need to express myself without raising my voice. I have always been a quiet person, definitely introverted, at times shy. I was never the girl to draw attention to herself in a group. I found the most pleasure and enjoyment from making things and being creative—activities that are strictly solo. Being quiet, though, I felt I was getting overlooked. People seemed to think I was fragile, maybe a little boring, sweet. They bought me a lot of pastel sweaters and told me I was a nice girl. And I knew that they weren’t really seeing the whole picture.

I really hate pastels.

Through jewelry making, I finally had a way to communicate to the people around me that I have countless ideas, a bold sense of design, and a bit of attitude. And I could express that without having to stand up on a chair, or wave my arms and shout. My designs are the outward reflection of my inner life that would otherwise remain hidden—textured, bold, and a little wild."


Kendra’s work is meant to be worn often—not saved for a special occasion. We ship out each piece with the hope that it might become someone’s favorite piece of jewelry. Something they wear every single day. Something they feel comfortable in, something they connect with, something they feel seen in.

We love seeing photos of you wearing and loving our jewelry. Tag us on Instagram @kendrareneejd, or email us your photos! It completely makes our day every time.
