Kadrmas Jewelry Designs are created by Joyce and Chad Kadrmas, out of their home studio in Lake City , MN . They have been in business since 1997 and have been traveling during the spring through fall months participating in juried fine art festivals throughout the Midwest . Their jewelry ideas often are inspired through their travel experiences, with elements of the Southwest and the delicate designs evocative of the tropical islands of which Joyce was a previous resident.
Both designers have studied fine art and jewelry design in college, with Chad studying in Rochestor , MN . Joyce graduated in 1991 from the Minneapolis College of Art and Design with a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree.
