My name is Kiona Elliott, and I design and create all the jewelry of Lucky Accessories. I grew up in Rotterdam in the Netherlands, in a very creative, open-minded and mostly self-employed family. From a young age, I felt the tug of creativity, but without any clear personal direction. My education at a Waldorf school exposed me to an enormous variety of crafts, but nothing really clicked.
At 18, I moved to the US and after some travel, I finally settled in Raleigh, NC. There I spent eight years working for a local custom jewelry, and finally found my own creative outlet, in jewelry design. After the birth of my first son in 2003, I left this job to stay home, and started my own jewelry business. Almost two decades later, I still find myself in my own studio with a thriving and growing business. I continue to design and create things that make me and my customers happy.
I. Love. My. Job.
