Chelsea K
Senior Designer | Seattle Studio
Diamond Graduate AJP GIA
Available for Virtual Consultations

Chelsea was raised in a creative atmosphere in Southern California. She inherited her passion for fine art from her dad who makes surrealist paintings and sculptures, while she attributes her love of fashion to growing up listening to the hum of her mom's sewing machine and watching her rapidly sketch elongated fashion figures.

Jewelry as wearable art seemed to her the perfect combination of her interests.

She earned her bachelor's degree in fashion merchandising from California State University Long Beach and her Graduate Diamonds and AJP credentials from the Gemological Institute of America.

Chelsea worked for five years at Mark Schneider Design where she advanced from apprentice to Design Director. There she designed for the engagement ring and color gemstone jewelry collections, competitions, and custom requests. She has won three design awards: First Place Custom Distinction in the MJSA Vision Awards, a commendation and a First Place in the CPAA International Pearl Design Competition.


Outside the design studio, Chelsea seeks visual experiences from touring art museums to hiking through forests—anything that allows her to discover inspiring examples of nature, architecture, sculpture, dance, furniture, or clothing. She gravitates to the avant-garde, like Zaha Hadid's futuristic skyscrapers or Iris Van Herpen's outlandish evening gowns. By deriving influence from art forms beyond the sphere of fine jewelry, Chelsea creates innovative designs that transcend that category and become works of art.
