Santa Fe Artist: Kit Carson
Art and I met up at an early age of about 9, says Kit Carson. By 18, I knew the path, and by 25, I was in the business.
Kit Carson’s jewelry profession continued to grow, adding sculpture and painting along the way. His specialty is engraved jewelry with a rainbow of gemstones, including high grade turquoise. The beauty and humor of animals is a constant theme in his work. Kit’s design style has an Art Nouveau filter that smooths out his line.
His current line of jewelry is called Romantic Rust. This on-going series includes cuffs from license plates, chains, and bolo ties with hood ornaments. Each piece is one-of-a-kind-out-of-my-mind.
