“Beauty of style harmony and grace and good rhythm depends on simplicity.” – Plato
jkonikoff is about individuality in a refined, accessible way. Jewelry that layers together, building over time. Handcrafted, small-batch production that focuses on expression and uniqueness.
I love to create one-of-a-kind pieces, and I believe individuality should be celebrated. I also believe that in expressing our individual uniqueness we can find unity of the heart. My pieces are designed to intermix and become part of your story.
With family roots in New Orleans, I was turned on to colorful unique beads at a young age. I went on to graduate from Florida State University, triple-majoring in Fashion Design, Textiles, and Merchandising. As someone who enjoys keeping busy with my hands, making jewelry was always a part of that. I sold my first jewelry at the college Market, and then local stores and artisan markets. I still call Tallahassee home. My jewelry is created amidst the tall swaying pines, native flowers, and the hum of wildlife. I live with the my husband, three children, and three cats. We tend the earth, cultivate our lives, and homeschool.
“I want to live in a world created by art, not just decorated with it.” – Banksy
I invite you to explore and find something that touches your soul.
