Kelsey is a goldsmith and jewellery designer from Canada. She has been making jewellery in various capacities her entire life. Over the years her work has evolved from simple plier work, into more complex fine jewellery construction. She has studied jewellery making at numerous institutions around the world and completed several apprenticeships under Master goldsmiths. She is thrilled to be a scholarship recipient of the Accademia Riaci’s International Art & Design Competition, and looks forward to learning from the Italian Masters in the year to come.
