Nearly every piece of Evan Knox Designs is one-of-a kind, so she rarely keeps a sketchbook of designs, and only occasionally buys stones for specific pieces. She trusts her instinct that the materials she buys will eventually fit together. It began with her love of pearls and her desire to create the perfect knotted strand that could be worn with anything, something a little less conventional than a traditional strand of knotted pearls. Evan grew up in Northern Indiana and graduated from Indiana University. She moved to Brown County in the mid 90s. She has raised one son, one dog, and 14 cats during that time. Predominately self-taught, her study of art history has influenced some of her designs. Evan creates a wide range of handmade earrings, necklaces, and bracelets using precious and semi-precious gemstones, pearls, sterling silver, and gold. She uses a variety of techniques including reticulation and acid etching to create her pieces. Her jewelry is usually described as delicate and elegant. She strives to create timeless, classic jewelry that her clients will wear and treasure for years.
