But this Kennett Square, Pennsylvania, artist made it big: her collection has appeared on HBO’s Silicon Valley, ABC’s How to Get Away with Murder, and in the film, Bad Moms 2.
Currently, Kletjian is a two-time award-winning jewelry designer. She started as a young woman, creatively mixing and crafting original pieces, which she hopes have enhanced the special moments in many people's lives--including her own.
In 2016, Kletjian won the "Mort Abelson New Designer of the Year Award" at the JA New York Summer show. A year later, her 22K gold signet ring--showcasing a rare and 1.48ct Phenakite by sought-after gemstone cutter Jean-Noel Soni of Top Notch Faceting--was awarded "2nd place for Gold Ring Design" by the INDESIGN Awards.
“Just because you win...it really doesn’t mean anything,” said Kletjian. “You have to work hard and be better than you were the year before.”Kletjian's most popular jewelry pieces, include Evil Eye Charm, Shield, Skulls, or something from her Lucky Star collection.
“It could be a shirt I’m wearing, it could be a gemstone, or how I am feeling at the moment," said Kletjian. "I could be thinking about my children or I could be inspired by a piece that I just created for another collector."take anywhere from two weeks up to, sometimes, four months to create. Kletjian said that sometimes when she is creating or designing a piece she sits with it and lets it speak to her.
“I like to solve all of the problems in your jewelry box,” said Kletjian. “Your jewelry has energy and if it just sits there and every time you open the draw and you look at it and you think this thing, I wish I liked that and what can I do with this, coming from a fashion background I have an obsessive attention to scale and I like to recreate something into new life form.”
One of her most recent pieces is from a client who wanted to transform a pair of earrings and necklaces which had been sitting in her jewelry box into a new piece. Kletjian took the pieces and turned one diamond earring and necklace into a new revamped diamond bracelet, and used the second set to create one for the client’s daughter.
“I think back to my early memories of child-size sparkles under the tree, the feelings of love, surprise, and happiness associated with jewelry," she said. "I feel fortunate to be chosen by collectors to celebrate their love and momentous occasions. I believe in creating jewelry that will endure in quality and style, that can be counted on to be passed down through generations.”
