About the Designer

Kendria is a self-guided metalsmith, lapidarist, and illustrator with a yearning to create. She feels an immense sense of tranquility in being able to take raw elements and turn them into wearable art or decor and has been doing so since she was a child.
Solid Treasures was born in 2012 in Richmond, VA. She has brought her passion to Tucson, San Diego, and now Orlando. Starting off, Kendria sold beaded work and wire work. It was in 2015 when she decided to learn the art of metalsmithing, and it has been a steady passion ever since. Every piece is either initially hand-fabricated or designed by her. She favors one-of-a-kind, hand-fabricated pieces, but also incorporates casted work using her own designs. You'll find a lot of texture in her work as it's one of her favorite elements in her work along with luscious gemstones.

"I find inspiration in almost anything, because the expression through art has no limits."
