New KMJ collections, new KMJ staff, and our first KMJ store! We couldn’t have packed more into 2019 if we’d tried. The year was amazing.
The biggest news of 2019 has to be our new store, Kate Maller Jewelry. We’re located in the Highlands shopping district on West 32nd, surrounded by cool boutiques, eateries and coffee shops. You’ll find pieces from KMJ collections as well as jewelry by 10 independent artists. We also carry luscious scents and oils, fun ceramics, gorgeous handbags and scarves, and a collection of playful cards.
Every artist featured in the store is committed to quality craftsmanship and sustainability. Kate Maller Jewelry is a gift giver’s paradise filled with beautifully-crafted, carefully-selected handmade goods by environmentally-conscious artisans. Heads up – watch for our staff picks for Valentine’s Day in a post later this month.
No way could we have had the year we’ve had without the help and support of my husband, Scott, and our staff. Tess joined KMJ as a Bench Jeweler last summer. A metalsmithing anthropology major, Tess will be attending NY NOW with me in February before heading to Nashville to hone her diamond-setting skills. Tess is a force in the studio. I love her grounded energy, positive attitude, and sassy ginger hair.
Abby joined KMJ in November as store manager of Kate Maller Jewelry. She brings years of experience in retail. Her enthusiasm, knowledge, and sense of humor are all huge assets to our team! Stop by and introduce yourself. We’re open Wednesday – Saturdays from 10 – 6 PM and 12 – 5 PM on Sundays. The exact location is 3450 W. 32nd Avenue. If you’re puzzled about the perfect gift for a special someone, Abby will steer you in the right direction. She’s incredibly helpful and pleasant to work with.
We introduced two new KMJ collections in 2019, including Slice for Men, our first-ever men’s line. In addition to KMJ online and our Denver store, shoppers can find KMJ in 30 store locations across the country.
That’s it—and it’s a lot! My warmest thanks to our KMJ staff, friends, family, customers and clients for making 2019 our best year yet. I’m looking forward to 2020 and all the exciting things happening at KMJ. Hope you’ll come along for the ride.
