Kaleen’s family and friends, especially her husband, will vouch for the fact that she has a deep-rooted love of jewelry. Her evolution from a jewelry admirer to a jewelry artist began with a beading class she took with her mother. Inspired by how much she loved creating wearable art [and having just welcomed her first son to the world] she ventured into the realm of keepsake jewelry. For her son’s first Christmas, Kaleen gave custom fingerprint necklaces to her family. Soon, she began receiving requests from friends for their own custom jewelry and she’s been creating since then!
Since that Christmas, Kaleen has become a certified fine silver artist and has expanded her keepsake fingerprint jewelry line to also include pet prints, hand- and footprints, and jewelry featuring handwriting, sheet music, and even locks from a baby’s first haircut. Each piece of jewelry she creates is custom-crafted; therefore, each piece has a special story and significance that accompanies it. Kaleen enjoys creating keepsakes and preserving memories for her customers; she considers it an extreme honor to be a part of the highlights of her customers’ lives, preserving a part of their most important relationships – whether with family, friends, or pets – in silver.
