Kathleen Lynagh House creates fine jewelry that embodies her love of design, creativity and fine craftsmanship.

  1. A native of Philadelphia, she received her Bachelor of Fine Arts in graphic design from Arcadia University. For several years she worked for the Hillier Group, a highly respected architectural firm, as Senior Graphic Designer and Associate. While working for the Hillier Group, she was selected to attend a unique program offered by the Yale School of Design, in Brissago, Switzerland, where she studied sculpture, graphic design, and photography.


In 1990 she took a sabbatical from her graphic design career and followed her dream to live in Florence. It was there she began her formal training in jewelry design. She attended the Studio Art Center International (SACI) in Florence, Italy. And upon returning to the United States she continued her jewelry studies at the Tyler School of Art in Philadelphia, PA. In 1991, she made the cross country journey to live and work in San Francisco. It was here that she worked under a master goldsmith learning many skills and tools of the trade.

In 1995, inspired by her client’s enthusiasm for her designs, she launched her own jewelry design business and continues to hand make all her own pieces. She has three collections SYMBOLS: 5 Universal Charms,  a wedding line Bella Flora and the Classics: Bracelets & Necklaces.

Artist Statement

“All through the ages jewelry has been an ever-present element in our lives. It is a timeless art form that is worn to adorn and commemorate life. It is my pleasure to create designs that will become part of people's lives and continue these creative traditions.”

What makes my jewelry different?

In creating my designs I became aware of my materials and where they come from.... the earth. In keeping with my personal beliefs of doing one's best to conserve nature, I have added the use of 100% reclaimed Sterling Silver to all of my cast pieces.
