After working as a jewelry designer out of Costa Mesa, Kenton began following his passion and art by creating the beautiful pieces you see today. His first real breakthrough opportunity came when he was given the chance to sell his collection at Garys Men's Store in Fashion Island, Newport Beach. The story came full circle when he was setting up the collection in store when a Gary's customer bought the first piece before it was even out on display. Kenton believes his crafts are more than just jewelry, they're a suit of armor. A reminder to everyone who wears it to take on each day with great character and courage. With every piece individually made by hand in California, Kenton Michael creates unique and exceptional accessories for unique and exceptional personalities.
