National Designer: Jennifer Kalled
Jennifer Kalled’s jewelry is profoundly reflective of the artist who creates it. It is, in every sense, gracefully defiant, unapologetically bold and relentlessly exploratory.
Kalled has been designing jewelry since she first learned her craft in Arizona in the mid-70’s. Her love of colored stone came out of her Southwestern experience. Her naturally acute sense of color finds expression in the unique and vibrant combinations, which are the hallmark of her work.
Kalled’s designs have an archetypal quality with strong feminine appeal. Her jewelry has been featured in Lapidary Journal and has appeared in Colored Stone and Modern Jewelry magazines.
Kalled challenges individuals to defy the boundaries that inform their self-perception. She crafts jewelry that dares you to wear it; then gives you the permission to be daring.
