Therese Kuempel Jewelry

When ladies do badass things that you may not expect ladies to do (which, by the way, I will love never having to say at some point in my life)...but when ladies are BADASS, those ladies need to be talked about.  Well, Therese Kuempel is a metalsmith.  A super awesome metalsmith who studied sculpture at college at the Art Institute of Chicago, and who now makes incredibly unique and powerful jewelry by hand.  She's awesome and she has been able to make a full-time career from making her gorgeous pieces and selling them on Etsy.

So not only do I love her work, but I love her story and drive.  Keep being badass, Therese.
