about me


I'm Emily Kitt: an award-winning jewelry artist with nearly 20 years of experience, and a whole lot of passion.

I first learned metalworking while in college and studying Art Education at Kutztown University, and it quickly became something I couldn't live without. I worked in the publishing world for 10 years while tinkering away in the studio during downtime from work. I continued learning new techniques, was part of a wonderful jewelry artist collective (Bluestem Studio), and when the collection parted ways, I set out on my own.

Now I'm a full time jewelry artist based out of Quakertown, PA. This has let me spend so much more time with my daughter, and still be able to focus on my work in the studio. My work has been featured on Interweave and Rio Grande's websites, published in several magazines, and received numerous awards. I'm member #4145 of the SRAJD.

Creating jewelry is my passion, as is adhering to eco-friendly methods... it's not just better for the earth, but healthier for myself and anyone else who spends time in my studio.

The majority of my pieces are one of a kind; I feel that each person is unique, so their jewelry should be, too! I'm lucky enough for my dream job to be a full time gig, and it's all thanks to wonderful people like yourself who support independent artists who make each piece by hand.
