Kelly Matthews is the art and soul of Boots Ravens Designs. Her artistic journey began about eight years ago with a great yearning to create special things with her hands. The Boots Ravens style has morphed and evolved over the years, but the joy in creating has only grown deeper for Kelly. Her pieces are created using sustainable products, an array of metals, colorful beads and hypo-allergenic components. She says: “I find vast joy in the process of creation, envisioning each piece of jewelry as a piece of mini art.”
Boots Ravens creations are solely created by Kelly in her studio overlooking Butte Creek here in Northern California. Her “artistic endeavors are rewarded by the hawks that fly by, the sound of the creek, the ever changing colors and the continued support of my wonderful friends, family, and customers!”
