Moose Spotlight: Jewelry Creations Characterized by Adventure and Exploration

“There is no doubt that creativity is the most important human resource of all. Without creativity, there would be no progress, and we would be forever repeating the same patterns.” - Edward de Bono

Francesca Kennedy is the jewelry artist behind the Instagram account @flkjewelry. She has been creating jewelry for 20 years now. Previously a clothing designer, she has always collected interesting stones and pearls. She shared that she has had a full tilt love of turquoise for as long as she can remember! 


Francesca thinks her work is characterized by a sense of adventure and exploration. This comes from her love of telling stories and imagining the lives of the people who wear her work.




"So many things inspire me!" Francesca declares when we asked her what got her inspired to create jewelry. She elaborated that she can’t decide if it’s people or materials more than the other, so let’s say both! Oh, and definitely music.


Francesca has been creating stuff since she was about 16, so she explained that it’s just been a way of life. She mentioned how she was also very fortunate to connect with visionary stockists early on so she has pretty much been free to follow the bliss, as she said. As an artist, that is often her biggest challenge - finding the connection.


So far, she loves sharing the journey!




Most artists face different types of challenges when creating. However, when we find ourselves with moments that make us feel good about what we're doing, it's a priceless feeling! For Francesca, she's grateful to say that she still gets those moments pretty often - tempered by horrible slogs. "Whatever," she said. Followed by an: Always forward. (Love this mindset!)


Take a look at some of Francesca's amazing creations!

"Oy. Loose," upon asking what her design process is like, this is what Francesca said! It's open to inspiration and happy circumstances. In addition, Francesca said it’s different when she's doing a collection as that has its own order.


Francesca described her design style as always striving for elegant, passionate, always improving technically, chic, and supportive of individual style.

When we asked what's one design tip she has for her fellow artists and words of encouragement or tips to those who are starting out in the world of jewelry-making, Francesca only had three words to say that carry a lot of weight! 


"Go do it."


Most of the time, that's all it takes! Yes? :)
