Emerging jewelry designer Kenneth M. Morrison is a 1980 graduate of Mercyhurst College in Erie, Pa. Along with a BA in Art, he received the "Sister Angelica Cummings Senior Art Award" and "The Creative Arts Division Award". Kenneth's artistic talent was noted at an early age and continued to develop in many areas including art, dance, set design, floral design, and display styling for clients such as Mikimoto. Kenneth learned the process of creating costume jewelry in a remarkably short amount of time, and now his finished pieces show profound handmade designs based on floral and “primitive” forms. Kenneth's fascination with nature results in sublime pieces inspired not only by Art Deco, but also by his experience as a floral and display designer. Kenneth uses linear, abstract and streamlined shapes to create pieces that can be mixed and matched, giving many options for combinations that define the wearer’s style.
