Meet Mackenzie King
Mackenzie King lives and works in Charleston, South Carolina. She completed a BFA at Kent State University in metal-smithing and studied gold-smithing and silver-smithing in Florence, Italy. Mackenzie creates her work with a bold color palette translated through the use of enamel on copper. Her current collection is very expressive and versatile with the repetition of geometric shapes, creating a rhythm to curve over the body and leave the last design element up to the purchaser. For Mackenzie the process of metal-smithing is a huge playground in which she explores daily, with the addition of new textures, colors and patterns the design evolves and develops at her workbench. In the end a wearable piece of art emerges.
"Just Kenzie Jewelry is a product of the stirrings of my imagination. I am fully engaged in the process form start to finish, there is no limit to the colors, emotions and textures that are represented ; it's my mind, my heart, my world. When you choose a piece from the collection, I want your inner spirit and wild child to shine through; I want you to enjoy wearing each piece as much as I enjoyed creating it.
Each necklace in the Just Kenzie Collections is unique, with enough attention to all the little details to make them spectacular. "Earrings have always been one of my favorite things to wear, so I make each one of my earrings as a statement piece that can stand alone, or be the perfect compliment to one of my necklaces."
