I’m SUPER excited today to host this giveaway from JustKenzie! Mackenzie is an Asheville local that I met at an event for small businesses. I loved her work so much that I google stalked her until I found her etsy site. We ended up meeting for lunch (probably a good idea given my previously mentioned stalking behavior…lol) where she generously offered to give away a piece of jewelry to my lovely readers. Yes that’s YOU!

Some of her awesome work:

 

So here’s a little bit about Mackenzie…

*****

I went to Kent State University in Kent, Ohio and got a Bachelors of Arts Degree in Jewelry Design and Metalsmithing.While at Kent I was able to study abroad in Florence, Italy. That experience changed my life forever; seeing life elsewhere made me re-evaluate my own. I realized that my hands were my gift and gateway to my future.

My love for what I do roots from my passion for life. We have this one life and this one body, why not adorn it with jewels? My enthusiasm allows me to see beauty in everything. This is truly reflected in my work due to the use of recycled materials. I visit our local scrap yard in Asheville about once a week to find my hidden treasures. I want to turn a copper pipe that might have been under bathroom sink into a beautiful necklace, in which that pipe is unidentifiable.

Color is one of the most amazing visual affects this world gives us. It can relate to anything; a feeling, a taste, or a smell. This is why I incorporate it into every one of my pieces through the process of enameling. I have a personal connection with each one of my pieces and hope that whoever buys and wears the piece does as well. My jewelry reveals my inner most thoughts and feelings, because what is life without feelings? I want you to feel my jewelry when you wear it- feel beautiful in it.
