I am fascinated with the imperfection of handmade jewelry- the textured marks of my grandfather’s hammer forge a connection of the past to the present, between the wearer and me. My permanent Eterna bracelet symbolizes this bond: the intimacy and permanence of the welding experience create a lasting reminder of the harmony between memories and expectations. I began welding the Eterna bracelet simply because I Iiked the idea of a permanent bracelet, having no idea it would take on a life of its own: mothers, daughters, fathers, sons, sisters, brothers, friends; those setting goals or those who have achieved them; those who have overcome obstacles- all come to share the experience and leave with a permanent reminder of something meaningful.
I like to make beautiful jewelry at an affordable price point. Except for the Eterna bracelet and my designs in the Luxe Collection, which are crafted in solid gold, I work primarily in sterling silver and gold-filled wire. I love simple yet elegant design, so I create jewelry that is fun to wear and easy to live in. My business plan is to bring joy, so I hope you feel beautiful and celebrated every time you put on a piece of KB Design HTX jewelry.
