GEMNIA began in a dorm room in 2004.
While studying art as an undergrad, Keelin, founder of GEMNIA, grew curious about creating wearable sculptures, and quickly fell in love with designing jewelry. A few years later, she attended the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City for jewelry design, and soon GEMNIA (formally Coralized) was born.
Since then, Keelin has taught various jewelry classes in her native Connecticut, and her work has been displayed at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City. She's received awards for her embroidered jewelry, including designs for Preciosa Crystal and Accessories Magazine.

100% of purchases are made to order. We use recycled metals in our work, and always recycle our own scrap. Our packaging is made from recycled materials, as well.
Making everything to order guarantees almost zero waste. By only using the materials we need, it helps us be a little greener each day.
Packaged with love.
All of our pieces are handmade in our Connecticut studio, so when you purchase from GEMNIA, know you're receiving jewelry made with love, passion, & care.
