About

A Little About JKA Designs ...

I started my company, JKA Designs, as a graphics design artist on the computer for local corporations and printers. Seeking a break from the computer (after many years on it) and a way to express my creativity in a different way is what led me in the direction of creating sterling silver jewelry and fused glass pieces. I have been creating jewelry for over 15 years and am mainly self taught. Most of my learning has been from books, online tutorials, forums, and hands-on experience.

All of my sterling silver pieces are hand fabricated in my home studio using traditional metalsmith techniques -- jeweler’s saw, hammer, torch, and rolling mill. I use recycled sterling silver and conflict free, eco-friendly stones and gems are used in my jewelry.

When I am not in my studio I spend a lot of time in my flower garden so most of my inspirations come from nature in my silver work and kiln-formed glass pieces. The different forms of nature … shapes, textures, beautiful colors of flowers, birds, and even the insects are what inspire my pieces. My jewelry pieces are delicate in scale with simple lines which makes them great for everyday wear. By mixing metals, semi-precious stones, glass, and leather, I create pieces that are both contemporary and timeless.

Although I liked working in all the different mediums I experimented with, my passions are forging silver and kiln-formed glass. To me it is personally satisfying to take a flat sheet of silver and hand forge it into a piece of jewelry. I love working with tools … hammers, saws, my rolling mill, and of course my torch! All of my sterling silver pieces are hand fabricated in my home studio using traditional metalsmith techniques -- jeweler’s saw, hammer, torch, and rolling mill.

If you ordered the wrong size and it is a ring I can resize, I will be happy to do so at no extra charge (up to 1/2 size larger).
