Absolutely perfect! These are beyond better than what I expected, and knowing Angela and her work I already had very high expectations. These earrings are genuinely SOLID, very good quality. They are so simple but bold at the same time, and make a positive statement. I haven’t worn earrings in almost 10 years! But now my ears are ready and excited to be adorned by these. I was also impressed with the seller’s prompt shipping and lovely packaging down to every last detail. Angela is too legit!

About

Modern Jewelry Handcrafted in Seattle, Washington

My name's Angela and I'm the maker and designer behind Knuckle Kiss Jewelry.

I fell in love with metalworking on the very first day of my very first metalsmithing class. It was 1999 and I was an Industrial Design Technology student in an Associates of Arts Program in Seattle. I opened up my beginner metalsmithing pack, pulled out my bench pin and jeweler's saw, and began cutting out my first designs. Soon after, I was learning to file, form, and solder.

I was immediately drawn to the mysterious qualities of metal--its toughness and malleability beneath a torch flame, a hammer, a file. I was taken by the idea of making intimate, small scale structures to wear and admire as art.

It's been years since that first class. While my skills have evolved, my love for the craft feels as intense as ever. Knuckle Kiss Jewelry is an outlet for my enthusiasm and my lifelong desire to create and share.

I've always been drawn to contrasting forms and ideas--tender and tough, soft and hard, classic with an edge. I love the beauty and grace that often comes from imperfection.

Hence the name "Knuckle Kiss." By definition, it's a punch in the kisser, but also a courtly peck on the hand. It also serves as a guideline I try to work by: to make striking, edgy pieces with the softness and warmth of handcrafted work.

Thanks for taking an interest in my shop! I hope to make something beautiful for you someday.

Thank you for interest in Knuckle Kiss. I create one-of-a-kind and limited-edition jewelry from my Seattle Studio. I take an intuitive approach to creating jewelry and am inspired by the forms I see in nature and architecture, and by textiles, texture, relics, and symbology. I love the contrast between tender and tough, and strive for this balance in my work.

I use traditional metalsmithing techniques, working from sheets, wires, and tubes of recycled sterling silver and U.S.-made brass, copper, nickel, silver-fill and gold-fill. Each piece is soldered, formed, filed, and finished by hand.

Many of my pieces use commercially manufactured components--such as chains, earring posts and backs, hinges, and clasps. And, on occasion, I incorporate vintage materials and found objects including river stones, coins, washers, and shells.

One of my main goals as Knuckle Kiss grows is to use sustainable materials for each and every piece I make. Currently, I use recycled metals and components made in the U.S. whenever possible.

DOMESTIC SHIPPING via USPS First Class Mail

All domestic orders are shipped via USPS First Class Mail. The shipping price includes insurance and tracking. First Class mail is usually delivered to U.S. addresses within 2-5 business days, but this is not guaranteed by the post office and can sometimes take longer.

If you need a faster or guaranteed delivery time, please contact me and we can upgrade the delivery method to USPS EXPRESS or PRIORITY for an additional fee.

All international orders are shipped via USPS First Class International Mail. The shipping price includes insurance. Shipping times vary by country but reach most destinations in 2-4 weeks.

Taxes and customs fees are the responsibility of the customer. If an order is refused by customs, you’ll be refunded after I receive the returned order, minus a $5 restocking fee and shipping cost. I recommend looking into your local customs laws and fees to avoid any surprises. Thank you for understanding.
