For Kenda Kistenmacher her passion began early, at just 12 years old she began working at her local bead store. Years later Kenda found herself in art school studying metal design, and following graduation she began to develop her namesake line.
Over the years the line has developed from something fun in her free time, to Kenda's current signature collection that she works on full time, Kenda Kist Jewelry.
Kenda's unique sterling silver collection features many gemstones, and inspirations. The latest tassel pieces are sure to be your statement necklace. The beautiful design is dramatic, yet lightweight and versatile. Kenda finds inspiration in geometric shapes and forms. She loves to layer her pieces, whether it's stackable rings or bracelets, her jewelry is made to be worn and enjoyed!
The sky's the limit with Kenda and her jewelry, her husband Marty Markel, joined the Kenda Kist team to add a custom design element to the line. Marty has over 12 years of experience as a highly skilled gold smith and now creates unique custom pieces for the line. Marty can create anything from engagement rings to bridal gifts! Marty is happy work with any gemstone you desire as well as craft pieces in Gold, Silver or Platinum!
Kenda's goal is simple "surpass trends and create functional, lightweight jewelry for woman to wear for any occasion." Each piece is hand-forged with delicate craftsmanship and care by our good friend & talented designer, Kenda. Each piece in the Kenda Kist collection has a funky twist, yet they're timeless enough to wear at any age. Stop by today to see Peachy Keen's collection of Kenda Kist Jewelry!
