Absolutely love the painting Kelly did. This piece was very important for my family and she did it perfectly. Definitely exceeded expectations and very grateful for her talent. I recommend her to anyone!! The close detail and the vibrant colors made the painting so alive. Thank you Kelly!!

I ordered a horse model for my sister of her very complicated paint for Christmas, little did I know that my sister had ordered a model for me as well of my horse! On Christmas day we both received our gifts and couldn't believe that we had both gotten a horse from Kelly! She had kept the secret and played along, even going so far as to make sure the packages had separate return addresses so we couldn't guess and using different sized boxes. All of her extra work only added to how amazing the gifts were. Not to mention how beautiful our models are. Did I mention how complicated my sister's paint must have been? Yet every marking is perfect, the color of his coat is spot on, and my favorite detail is his eyes that she spent extra time on. Mine was beautiful as well and a perfect keepsake of my best friend. Thank you!!!!
I started my Etsy shop about 6 years ago as an eager, new jewelry designer. I was estatic when I made my first sale about a week later, and ran down stairs to tell my dad.
It was a silver plated amber necklace.
I no longer work in silver plate, my design asthetic changed a lot as well as my passion for jewelry, and vintage.
My online store soon became a B & M shop in Occoquan, Virginia-- Kelly's Artbox. It's hard work! But I can genuinely say I love what I do. If I don't have passion or feel the creative spark I won't make it. I put a personal effort and my own aesthetic in every piece I make, or carry in my shop. And the people who appreciate that are the people that buy and love my work.
Owner, Maker, Designer
I started my business in 2006, as a mural and portrait artist. Being a creative spirit, it wasn't long before I budded into a jewelry designer. My love for vintage has also spilled over into my Etsy shop. I love what I do.
Because I never like to make the same piece twice, it is important that if you like it--buy it, or someone else might beat you to it. :-) I buy my beads from bead shops in all different states, and sometimes I order them from other amazing sellers on etsy-- I don't usually buy more than 6 of a certain bead(again because I like to make different pieces), but if you like a certain piece that has sold, convo me and I will see what I can do.
I do my personal best to provide you with beautiful, quality pieces and ship them to you quickly.
I love vintage hunting and also offer a variety of unique fun finds and strive to offer you the most unique and beautiful things!
My model horses are keeping me quite busy these days, and unfortunately turn around time is 6 - 8 weeks. I do my absolute best to keep you updated on the models progress, and really take time and pride in my work. I know you will be pleased!
