"Developing clean and sharp designs in their minimalist form is an important feature of my work. My goal is to give you classical, timeless work that can be passed on for generations. "
Kennedi Milan's jewelry is inspired by natural shapes and architecture. Her preferred materials are 18KT gold, sterling silver, and premier gemstones and pearls. Fabrication and wax carving are just some of the techniques she uses.
Milan utilizes both traditional hand fabrication and lost wax carving techniques to create her jewelry.
Milan has sought out training from some of jewelry's modern masters. Her education includes silversmithing at Alexandria, Virginia's Torpedo Factory, stone setting with Blaine Lewis at New Approach School, wax carving with Kate Wolf in Portland, Maine, and lost wax casting with Michael Schwartz at Creative Metalworks in Kensington, MD.
