I love this pendant. The front part is very cute and unique... not so cute on the back-side.

About

Jibwa, Jibwa, read all about it!

K8e Orr was born in Colorado Springs in 1983, growing up had more than its fair share of ups and downs and so she always sought solace in art. In her youth she was a skilled improviser, thinker, explorer, as well as her older brother’s comic book inker, who called her Jibwa.

As she grew as an artist she was influenced by the iconography she developed in her own life as well as designs from different cultures and periods throughout history. You can often see this in the intricate patterns that flow throughout her paintings surrounding the main subject matter, which often have a whimsical and ancient feel.

She has a connection with an older place in time and loves to scavenge vintage items which she paints, dismantles, or uses as parts in her one of a kind jewelry pieces. She enjoys working with various supplies and focuses on using unique and recycle materials whenever possible.

Her first sale was in second grade when she traded beaded rings to her class mates for Gushers and Crystal Clear Pepsi. She started doing farmers markets and selling in local stores in 2007, and found it to be a nice way to spend her summers. You can find her work locally at saffron, Earthen Artist House, Poor Richards, and Local Farmers Markets.

She is currently working full time as an artist as well as an art teacher for different artistic non-profits in the Colorado area. She has a dedication to finding artistic conclusions for the problems found in life, and hopes to reach people and their emotions though her individual artistic impressions, community projects, and a sharing of ideas.
