KKDesigns Set for 2014 Ketchum Arts Festival in Sun Valley
KKDesigns' Kary Kjesbo is ready to introduce her new line and new jewelry finds the summer season at the 2014 Ketchum Arts Festival. Experience KKDesigns, Jewelry with an Unexpected Edge, and meet jewelry designer Kary Kjesbo at the 2014 Ketchum Arts Festival at booth #133, from Friday, July 11, through Sunday, July 13.
For more than a decade, Kjesbo has participated in this highly touted arts festival alongside her fellow Idaho artists where she will have all of her enticing KKDesigns jewelry lines including a large selection of her much sought after, one of a kind Signature line antique jewelry.
"The addition of Chains + Stones to my collection of jewelry is reminiscent of some of my favorite creations from the past," Kjesbo said. "The organic nature of the stones and adding in a bit of color as well as texture into the line creates interest and catches the eye."
At the foundation of Kjesbo's KKDesigns, is her Signature line, which uses vintage and antique items. KKDesigns Chains + Pearls and Chains + Stones both have industrial feel with heavy sterling silver chains combined with fresh water and south Sea pearls and semi-precious gemstones, which present a sensual feel and attraction. KKDesigns Steel + Leather presents 1920s French cut steel shoe clips and WWII pilot wing leather cuffs to distinguish this impressive and original line and other striking leather bracelets and necklaces for men and women. KKDesigns Estate Collection captures Kjesbo's passion for collecting extraordinary pieces from significant eras of jewelry history. Victorian, Art Deco and 40s and 50s silver are the basis of this collection complimenting her lines and every woman's jewelry wardrobe.
"I'm always searching and excited to find new items to introduce to my collectors," she said. "I love my shop lines, and I'm committed to pieces of jewelry that every woman and man can incorporate into their wardrobe."
KKDesigns is original jewelry created by Kjesbo at her Hailey, Idaho studio. Her Signature line of antique jewelry has no re-productions and each piece is designed and original by Kjesbo inspired by the unique objects she finds and the many KKDesigns' collectors who often request custom pieces from Kjesbo.
Kjesbo has been busy traveling visiting the shops that carry KKDesigns jewelry across the country-Sun Valley, Park City, Portland, Seattle-and most recently Nashville where she enjoyed presenting a Private trunk. Kjesbo is pleased to announce that KKDesigns is now carried in H. Audrey, a very hip Nashville boutique, owned by singer/songwriter Holly Williams, the daughter of Hank Williams, Jr.
KKDesigns jewelry has been featured in Mario's Forum magazines and several highly regarded and award-winning Sun Valley publications, showcased at the Sun Valley and Ketchum Arts Festivals and trunk shows and Private events across the country.
Visit KKDesigns at the 2014 Ketchum Arts Festival in Festival Meadows on Sun Valley Road from Friday, July 11, to Sunday, July 13.
