KVK Jewelry designer Kerri Votaw Kliewer was born and raised on an angus cattle ranch in Nebraska. Growing up in such environment has undoubtedly influenced her work and her gravitation towards natural materials from the earth. Working with rare and exotic materials such as fossilized Woolly Mammoth Ivory and tooth, fossilized dinosaur bone, and buffalo horn, set her apart from the rest. The ability to implement such ancient materials into a modern piece of jewelry is Kerri’s strong-suit. A true designer, Kerri’s unique sense of form, texture and dimension are evident in her designs and attract those seeking something different. One can appreciate the purity of her designs knowing that everything is consciously and ethically sourced by sound gem dealers.
