Alumni Profile: Kara Konkle (BFA Metals and Jewelry Design)
Senior CAD Designer
Ann Arbor, MI
('07, BFA Metals and Jewelry Design)
“After studying jewelry making in Florence, Italy, I knew that I wanted to pursue a career in jewelry. But I also knew I didn’t necessarily want to be a bench jeweler. KCAD’s Metals and Jewelry Design program matched my goals, because it’s a progressive program that blends traditional jewelry making with advanced technology and a focus on design.
My favorite aspect of my job now is that I get to collaborate with master craftsmen, talented artists, and so many other creative people. I love the process, the problem solving, and being able to tell a story with my work.”
