11-6-15 – Thank you for the beautiful gift for my wife.  She’s very picky about her jewelry likes and when she saw your sterling and black pearl necklace in your window her smile made me know I had to purchase it for her. – Ernestine Morris

Below are several testimonials posted on Yelp by satisfied students and clients.

Chris S., Beaverton, Oregon:

Barbara does it all.  You have to check out this amazing jewelry shop.  Engagement rings and wedding bands are her specialty.  She has independent diamond brokers, does custom work, and can create a near exact match of almost any piece.  Don’t pay extra for tons of sales people or big box stores.  Talk to Barbara.

Emma A., Portland, Oregon:

Barbara Kennedy of Artisans of Metal and Thread is an exceptional jeweler!! She has both her own line (from which I have bough multiple pieces) and can repair or remake your old jewelry at a very reasonable price. I trusted her to fix my great grandmother’s 18 karat gold engagement ring, and I’m so glad I did. She made it look better than it ever had! She has the credential and training that exceeds most other jewelers in town AND she’s affordable.

I highly recommend checking out one of her classes – affordable, fun, and you walk away with a handmade treasure. Kids and adults alike can have a lot of fun! A truly unique Portland outing!

Thank you Barbara!

Joseph Y., Portland, Oregon:

Thanks Barbara for helping me get my wife the chain for mothers day she loved it.  It met my needs.  Its strong, the baby won’t break it and if it does break its nice to know you can fix it too.  Thanks for your service.

S.H., San Francisco, California:

Barbara is an excellent teacher.  She takes the time necessary to show you how to create the piece and then lets you do it.  You get the one-on-one help you need to succeed.  I would highly recommend her classes!
