kathleen maley


A California native, Kathleen Maley has been making jewelry and art objects in San Francisco for over 18 years.  Kathleen studied jewelry and metalsmithing at San Diego State University, then moved to San Francisco’s Mission District to live and work in The City’s diverse artist community.  

Her jewelry studio and workshop at 1890 Bryant Street Studios, is located inside the historic Best Foods building--  creative home to over 100 artists, painters, photographers, sculptors, printmakers, and ceramicists.

Kathleen creates sculptural jewelry that highlights the contrast between sterling silver and high karat gold vermeil, and can be found in galleries and museum shops across the country.  Her work is featured in several juried publications.

Living most of my life on or near the Pacific Ocean, the dramatic landscape of coastal California has become a doorway to inspiration for me:  the sweeping cliffs and tumbling waves, the linear horizon and the curved coastline, the textures and forms of rocks, sand and seashells -- these elements from Nature's geometry become the stylized lines and forms that give shape to

my work.
