Jennifer Kalled has been designing jewelry since she first learned her craft in Arizona in the mid-70's. Her love of colored stone came out of her Southwestern experience. Back home in NH, Jennifer's skill as a designer grew until, today, her talent is nationally recognized. Her naturally acute sense of color finds expression in the unique and vibrant combinations which are the hallmark of her work. "There is a pattern as to who are attracted to my work. There are those who love my work but keep a hesitant distance, much like a shy lover... and then there is the confident woman who is comfortable with the beginning of things, with her own voice... the woman who will start the next “trend.” I love these women & men, for without them, where would we artists be? Artists and their patrons share the thread of courage, willing to say what is “good, true & beautiful.’’
"Collectors have described my pieces to be “Klimt-like”. The beautiful ornamentation that graced the models in Klimt’s paintings comes to life in my jewelry, and my customers become the models!” Jennifer’s designs have an archetypal quality with strong feminine appeal. After seeing her work, many women have said that they feel the same excitement they did as little girls looking into their mother’s jewelry boxes. Jennifer’s jewelry has been featured in Lapidary Journal, New York Diamond, and has appeared in Colored Stone and Modern Jeweler magazines. In 2012, Kalled was honored along with 6 other women as Remarkable Woman, Master of Crafts of NH and in 2013 Peoples Choice Award by the League of NH Craftsmen. She exhibits at many of the best craft shows in the Northeast.
