Get to know Kelly a bit better with this Q&A:

How long have you been designing/where did you get your start?

I guess you can say Jewellery Design is in my blood. My family have been in the fine jewellery business for three generations. I was given my first kit with plastic beads at three, I think. Growing up, I never bought any of my friends Christmas or Birthday presents- everyone always got handmade necklaces or bracelets. I spent a lot of time with friendship-bracelets-in-progress pinned to my jeans as an early teen. 

Where did you find your inspiration for this collection?
I have always loved mixing textures, high-lows and design influences. My signature piece for Spring/Summer 2013 is a perfect example of the aesthetics that I love- It’s a very classically crafted double strand of Swarovski pearls, with a beautiful Art-Deco inspired clasp – but the pearls are this delicious matte neon pink.
If you could dress any celebrity who would it be?
I would love to see my jewellery on Local Torontonians! Off  the top of my head – Sarah Polley, Meaghan Rath and Anna Silk. 
What is the most rewarding part about having your own line? I get to pour my creativity into my very own vision. I don’t need to answer to anyone else’s design mandates except my own and my client’s. It’s one of the hardest jobs I should imagine, but also the most fulfilling. The learning curve is steep. 

What has been the best part of your Fresh Collective journey thus far?
Working for yourself is lonely- I hide in my basement all day!  Being part of the Collective puts me back into a community of like minded, talented people. 
Co-hosting this Queen St Trunk Show will be the awesome Jessie Tucker Lyzwa of Sugar Rush – another one of our fab jewellery designers! Jessie will be unveiling new pieces from her spring line as well as offering 40% off her Fall/Winter line!
