About

I’m a resident of upstate South Carolina. I live with my loving husband, 2 small spoiled dogs, and 4 large spoilled rotten cats!

I first began my jewelry career when I was 10. I started out cutting cabochonds (they’re the rounded-non faceted stones) at the local gem and mineral club in Augusta, GA. When I turned 14, I took silversmithing and fabrication lessons from a local bench jeweler, and I’ve been making jewelry ever since!

From 2005-2008 I taught beginning silversmithing at Earthspeak Arts Jewelry school in Asheville, NC.

In 2008 I started Moonkist Designs, and now I enjoy creating handmade artisan mixed metal jewelry with imagination!

    My girlfriend and I would like to see your work in person. She is having a hard time choosing her engagement ring because your work is so good. I love the Mokume Gane Wedding Band, I’ve never seen anything like it. We live in Va Beach and would love to drive down to S.C, (I lived in Charleston for a few years and would love to take Sherrie there as well) If you allow folks to come see your work in person please contact me at donhedrick@hotmail.com
