Kelly’s fascination with gems and precious metal began at an early age. She was born in Faith, South Dakota, near the famous mineral-rich Black Hills region and adjoining Sioux Indian lands. Her early collection of rocks and arrowheads evolved into a lifelong love of gems and jewelry.

“Design is everywhere,” she states. Kelly Charveaux’s unique designs along with obsessive attention to quality and detail have led to feature highlights in Bead & Button Magazine, Oprah’s O Magazine, and Ornament Magazine. Whether from an exotic travel or just a nature walk, she always returns fully charged and inspired for the next creation.
