Welcome KO Designs and Ithil Metal Works!

Chemers Gallery has a wide array of unique handmade jewelry, and we've just added two new designers to our collection: Kim Otterbein of KO Design, and Ithil Metal Works. We love the pieces they've each sent us, and we're confident that you will too.

Necklace by KO Design

Kim Otterbein has had a life-long love for beads. She's a dedicated instructor of beading workshops and classes, as well as an accomplished artisan and silversmith. Color, pattern, and fibers have always attracted her, which is very befitting for someone whose training includes textile design and painting. Kim also works with metal, precious metal clay, and polymer clay to create her designs. The selection of necklaces and earrings we've received from her plays up her expertise perfectly with their combinations of metals stamped with organic designs, paired with complementary shapes, beads, and color combinations. Her jewelry is layered with subtle patters and intricate designs.

Ring by Ithil Metal Works

Israel Ben-Haroush and Gilli Dagmi founded Ithil Metal Works over ten years ago in Tel Aviv, Israel. They produce stunning designs from sterling silver, gold, and semi-precious stones. We've received a collection of rings from Ithil that are just gorgeous, with bold, thick designs featuring hammered metal and thin dual-colored movable bands, as well as delicate filigree. The designers of Ithil strive to embody the spirit of the modern woman. Their kinetic rings are fantastic and make pleasing little jingling noises as they move.
