Beautiful Bijoux: Masami Kelly Banman


Masami Kelly's Gardenia Necklace

Masami Kelly Banman is an innovative metal smith and jewelry designer whose work is refined yet deliciously feminine.   She has an uncanny ability to capture the fragility of found objects in nature, such as hydrangea petals and butterfly wings, in her unique pieces.  Masami is currently working on an exciting new line of lockets cast in her signature lace mold.

Masami explains her design process:  “I usually dream up all my designs in my head first.  My sketchbook is mainly used to record my ideas and also to work out any technical details in the design.  Even before I start to make the piece, I already have a pretty good visual image of the completed piece worked out in my head.”

Masami was educated at the Rhode Island School of Design where she earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts, in Jewelry and Medalsmithing.  She currently works and resides in San Francisco and can be reached at [email protected]
