Kelly Morgen does more than just play with metals, she creates breathtaking works of art out of precious metals. How did she learn to make such amazing pieces of art?
I was trained in Florence, Italy by a master goldsmith, where I learned all the essentials of metalsmithing. I then completed my studies under the tutelage of Cherokee silversmith and shaman Heyoka Merrifield, while living in rural Montana. I craft every single element of every piece by hand, following the ancient artisan methods of the famous Italian jewelers and my own ideas and inspirations. I use only the most precious of metals (sterling silver and 18k gold) in my work, as I feel this creates a much more powerful piece. Each piece is a unique and original work of art that can never be duplicated, and so will last a lifetime.
These are not just trinkets for costume jewelry, these are meant to last for a life-time and then be handed down to the next generation. You can find her work through the following links:
