Tom Kinney

Jewelry

When Tom decided to retire from over 40 years of retailing, marketing and homebuilding, he found himself attending workshops in metalsmithing as a means of satisfying his desire to immerse himself in the arts.  It was a natural choice for him as he always had a passion for tools, inventions and design.

Tom builds jewelry as he built homes, with an eye for the unique touch of a craftsman.  His clasps, attachments, chains, choice of materials and embellishments, along with his love of perfection capture the viewer's attention.  The feel of one of his rings on your finger as it slips on effortlessly assures you that you are experiencing an extraordinary piece of fine jewelry meant to be appreciated.

The reward that Tom finds most satisfying is knowing he has fashioned something that someone will wear and treasure.
