Artist Bio...

Girl Meets Joy Jewelry designer, Camille Knutson

I just really love making jewelry!

I love bright pops of color, the luminous glow of gemstones and natural pearls, and the shimmer and shine of silver and gold metals that have been worked and burnished by hand. Since I fabricate with my materials, nothing is ever cast as multiples which leaves each piece being a one of a kind. Small details and deep, rich textures guide my process from start to finish on every piece. My intent is making finely crafted jewelry in limited quantities that are unique, tactile little treasures. 

Anything that has been carefully crafted by the hands of a maker - any maker - becomes a very personal and connecting experience. It's almost like the work is a story that continues with the person it speaks to.  I want every piece of that I create, as a jewelry designer, to become more cherished the longer it is owned, handled, worn and  loved.
