The ring that I bought is beautiful! And looks exactly like the picture! This shipping was super fast, I got my package way before I expected. I also received a hand written saying thank you and some history about the pearls, which I really enjoyed reading! If I am ever shopping for jewelry again I will definitely look here before anywhere else!

About

ETSY has brought everything together for me.

Welcome to Elegant Jewelry by JFK and Fiber Arts Outlaw by JFK.

Jacquelina Foley-Klein, (“JFK”), is the founder of these Etsy shops which opened in 2009.
She is presently a Sophomore currently enrolled at the Gemological Institute of America where she will receive her GIA.

JFK’s fascination with the arts was nurtured in her youth. Her parents and siblings would go on mining and gem hunting trips throughout the American Indian Reservations, Brazil, North Africa, South America, and the American Northwest.

At the University of Arizona, JFK studied design. After graduating, she stayed in Arizona on the Navajo Reservation in Luchachuchi and studied antiquities. She subsequently started working at The Northwest Indian Youth Center, a rehabilitation center for Navajo youths convicted of minor criminal charges.

In 1975, JFK’s couture boutique “Outlaw Imports” was opened in Maui. For two years, she designed and fabricated beachwear, wedding party jewelry, bridal gowns and tuxedos. Her life took a detour as she pursued and received her J.D. and practiced Family Law for 35 years. However, she still found the time to study welding and fiber arts.

We hope that you have the time to breeze through my shop and enjoy.

Thanks, Jacquelina Foley-Klein
