Jewelry designer Becky Kelso understands the intrinsic value of creating organically, rather than simply following trends. Born into a family of artists, Kelso is passionately committed to integrating her metalwork with all forms of her personal creative expression. She helped design two of her homes, one in San Miguel De Allende, Mexico at age 21, and the other on her family's six acre ranch in Sebastopol, California. She studied silver smithing, lithography and Spanish while building her Mexican hacienda.

At Modernica, LA she manufactured Noguchi and Eames furniture and is currently designing furniture from milled cypress harvested from her land. As gallery curator in the 80's at La Luz De Jesus she worked with artists Joe Coleman, Manuel OCampo and Robert Williams. After studying fashion design at FIDM she began wardrobe styling for print, fashion and movies. 

She describes herself as a designer inspired by fashion, architecture, and minimalist art but is firmly grounded in the artistry of her craft. 

Becky Kelso has been designing jewelry for over 25 years and her brand has been featured at Barney’s, Isetan Japan, Neiman Marcus, Takashimaya, Saks Fifth Avenue, Erika Tanov, Ylang23, Twist, Free People and over 250 specialty boutiques.
