Hi, my name is Kenyatta Jefferson, nice to meet you.
Born a Brooklyn native, I started off college as a marketing major. I wanted to figure out how I would be able to "sell" my ideas to the world. But deep down inside, I knew that I couldn't let my passion for art die.After stumbling upon a jewelry design class trying to fill in my electives, I became fascinated with the fabrication of jewelry and any process that was connected. I loved the way I could express my ideas using in a different media, like metal.
With goals of becoming a jewelry designer, I busied myself with art and metal-smithing classes to build a portfolio. Earning my Associates in Studio Arts (A.A.S) Degree from Lehigh Carbon University. The next step was to apply to the Fashion Institute of Technology NYC where I planned to continue my studies. In 2011, I got accepted to the institute but choice to put my goals of metal-smithing on hold and give time to my personal life. This is when I had the time and opportunity to learn all about graphic and web design. Studying online classes, I earned my certification in Adobe Creative Suite and (etc.)
Currently, I reside in Westchester, NY practicing freelance graphic design and completing my degree in Computer Science–Information & Technology (IT) at Pace University. I still create jewelry and accessories that promoting good vibes, motivation, and inspiration.
