Featured Studio--MKPjewelry

Our featured guild studio this week is MKPjewelry aka Kat BM. This is a studio that showcases a number of pieces of jewelry created with a number of jewelry techniques. Kudos to Kat BM for beings such a versatile and skilled artisan.
Kat's handmade designs are wire wrapped, bead woven, strung, and she also makes makes her own dichroic glass pieces.

When Kat was growing up in the cornfields of Iowa she had aspirations of becoming a paleontologist or a movie star. Well, I for one am so glad that these aspirations changed into her becoming a jewelry artisan and finding her way to this guild.

The jewelry showcased in "MKPjewelry" is always 'fresh, surprising, and fun' because Kat is dedicated to seeking new techniques and methods to explore while making jewelry.

Enough said, let's take a look at some of the wonderfully unique and creative pieces that are showcased in "MKPjewelry":
