Artist Statement

Denise KnechtMy love of quality costume jewelry came from my mom and her wonderful collection from the 40’s – 70’s. Today, when I wear some of her pieces, I always get compliments.

Creativity has always been an important part of my life. Designing jewelry is not only relaxing, it allows me to explore and express that passion. I love crafting a custom piece for a client and hearing her say “this is perfect”!

In my day job, I exercise the analytical (right) side of my brain as an attorney. I feel fortunate to be able to enjoy two very different activities and get inspiration and pleasure from both.
