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.

Beautiful, broke quickly

    Comments about Children Are The Anchors Necklace:

    This necklace was a gift for my best friend. She wore the necklace a few times, and one week exactly after I gave her this piece, the clasp broke. The chain did feel thin, but I never imagined that the clasp would give out so quickly. I imagine that this is unusual for this line of necklaces, but it was disappointing none-the-less.

        Comments about Children Are The Anchors Necklace:

        For the price I expected the silver portion of the necklace to be a pretty silver rather than a tin looking piece of metal with the lettering stamped in like a "dog-tag". The lettering is also uneven.

                    I bought this necklace as a gift for my daughter
                    who is expecting her first child. The anchor has
                    a special meaning to our family, so this was just
                    perfect!

                    Nice length and nice quality!!
