Kendra Tornheim

Kendra Tornheim is a wire jewelry artist living near Boston, MA. Her focus is making jewelry from antique keys, ornamenting them with swirls of wire, gears, crystals, pen nibs, and brass decorations such as leaves, wings, or dragons. She adds brilliant colors to her work with permanent inks on brass, finished with gloss varnish to give the look of enamels.

Kendra grew up assisting her mother at craft shows, visiting yard sales and antique shops with her father, and reading a great deal of science fiction and fantasy. She dabbled in a variety of craft techniques before becoming enthralled with wire in 2007. She sells her work online through her Etsy shop, Silver Owl Creations, and at a handful of conventions and craft fairs mainly in the northeastern US.

When she is not making jewelry, Kendra works as a software engineer, plays live action role playing games, and enjoys choral singing.
