Keri Kelley Hollifield is the artist and
owner of Earthstar Studio. She has been making jewelry for more than 7
years, and making art for as long as she can remember. She is mostly
self-taught and has taken workshops at Penland School of Crafts and
Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts. After earning an Associate Degree
in Wildlife Management in 2004, she decided to follow her desire and
need to create something every day.
Earthstar jewelry designs are greatly inspired by
her love of the natural world evidenced in the reoccurring theme of trees and leaves. Each piece is crafted by hand, creating
a one-of-a-kind work of art. Designs may be repeated, but the finished
products are never identical. Keri lives with her husband and their 3
dogs and 2 cats in Waynesville, North Carolina.
