Kathy Bransfield

Kathy Bransfield grew up in Cincinnati, Ohio, where she spent her childhood climbing trees before starting an art career standing in front of the TV and painting alongside legendary television artist Bob Ross. After graduating from The School for Creative and Performing Arts, she began traveling and selling her own handcrafted jewelry.

She creates meaningful jewelry out of both gold and sterling silver, each a reflection of her complex character, revealing an organic sentiment and creating a modern day heirloom.

"For over 25 years, I have looked to beautiful and powerful words to strengthen me or heal me. And for even longer I have looked to nature to do the same. I think within the jewelry there is a lovely balance of the two merging into one.

      Bought this as a gift for my niece's graduation from college. She put it on the evening before the ceremony and never took it off! It fit her perfectly, fell exactly to the right length on her and everyone loved it. I would absolutely buy this artist's work again and again.

        I bought this as a gift for my sister so I've only taken it out of its packaging once to get a look at it. I am very pleased with its quality. It is even better than it looks in the catalog.

          The necklace is beautiful; the chain is unusual (I wish it had been offered in another, longer length) and the sentiment inspires me. You can't ask for more from a necklace.

          This is a great necklace with a good motivational quotation. I am planning to wear it most of the time, on a longer chain, as a reminder to myself to pursue the personal qualities that I wish to achieve.

            This is a beautiful necklace with a great saying on it! I have now worn it with jeans and with a dress. The chain is delicate looking but very sturdy. Overall great quality!

                  It is becoming one of my go to necklaces. I love that the chain is different and delicate. I enjoy that the saying is hidden, yet slightly visible through the top piece. I find myself rubbing the two pieces together, much like another necklace from this site that I wear often.
