We are so fortunate to have Kathleen Krucoff as a local artist. November 25th brings a day full of jewelry therapy and an extraordinary collection of her finest designs.
As a Jewelry Designer, it was not something I set out to create. Celestial’s evolution was the result of a very rebellious and beautiful turquoise stone. My original design was not coming to fruition. I realized I was on a different course and then, I started to see the night sky, filled with stars. My imagination was fully engaged. Comets with their long tails of stardust swiftly passed my eyes.
Fused gold balls and textures created that comet’s long tail extending from a softly muted sapphire that swirled past the turquoise stone. My goal with each piece in this new collection is to convey my vision of the vast, brilliant night skies filled with twinkling stars, meteors streaking across the blackness, planetary displays and comets burning brightly.
Once the connection was made, I knew what I wanted to do with this collection. And so it began. Each piece is destined to be as unique as the person who wears it.
Out of failures, something beautiful emerges. The Celestial Collection represents strength, beauty and persistence.”
