Owner and designer, Kelley Solomon, has always had a passionÂ for style, fashion and art. Growing up loving the arts, she studied fashion and photography in college. Upon graduation, Kelley moved to Martha's Vineyard where she created her first jewelry line, KDesign, which was sold in a variety ofÂ island exclusive boutiques.Â Kelley found peace and inspiration for her jewelry through the island's rustic charm, raw beauty, and spirituality.
In 2011,Â she launched her new collection and named itÂ after her favorite place on Martha's Vineyard, a q u i n n a h. Â Each piece ofÂ a q uÂ i n n a hÂ jewelry is handcrafted in a humble studio, nestled in picturesque Killingworth, Connecticut.
Kelley loves vintage clothing andÂ accessories, wearing cowboy boots, and has a classic tomboy style she mixes withÂ sparkly accessories, bags, shoes and the occasional red lipstick. She enjoys dining at cozy restaurants that use local produce and shopping in small eclectic boutiques.
A q uÂ i n n a h jewelry is made to wear withÂ jeans andÂ a slouchy sweaterÂ or aÂ wedding gown.
Being a unique line of luxury accessories, a q u iÂ n n a h jewelry is sold exclusively through The White Dress by theÂ shore and Jennie Fresa BeautyÂ LibraryÂ Â both locatedÂ in Clinton, Connecticut.Â Kelley has been commissioned to create special pieces to adorn weddingÂ gowns by Modern Trousseau, aÂ couture bridal companyÂ in Woodbridge, Connecticut. A qÂ u i n n a h jewelry has gracedÂ magazine covers and has been featured in The Connecticut Bride magazine.
