PattieK Creates One-of-a-Kind Jewelry and Accessories
Pattie Kempf of Designs by PattieK has been creating unique, one-of-a-kind jewelry and accessories for 11 years and is passionate about her craft.
Pattie, raven-haired and energetic, creates these works of art in her home studio, where “one-of-a-kind” really does mean “only one of each design.“ She does some repair work and redesigns and repurposes old/antique pieces of jewelry based on a one-on-one consultation – inherited pieces that may be out of style.
Pattie also sells her wares at art and wine festivals in the San Francisco Bay Area, has an online website, and offers home shows. She attends classes when ever they’re offered to expand her knowledge and techniques in jewelry design and to create new items for her shop. She currently has displays at The Hub Community Center for the Arts at the corner of Georgia and Marin in Vallejo.
“I’m always ready to accommodate those in need of a gift or last minute event,” she explains. “My inspirations come from many things, but mostly from the gemstones themselves. Individual gemstones in-spire me to make something beautiful.”
The Hub Community Center for the Arts
“The Hub is a nexus for all arts in Vallejo. It is a place for all of us to connect, share our knowledge, show our art, build our community, and create activity, interest, vibrance, and prosperity in our city.”
In addition to a boutique and an art gallery, The Hub offers a safe friendly environment where you can listen to music or poetry, tele-commute, do your homework, or just relax and read. Go to TheHubVallejo.com for further information about this wonderful community-oriented haven.
