K Kajoux Jewels (pronounced K- Ka- Jeu) is an independent Irish owned handmade jewellery company where all the pieces are designed and created by hand in Co Kilkenny using semi- precious stones, Swarovski crystals and Freshwater pearls.
Each piece is designed by Kay Lyng in her studio in the hills of Clomantagh, Co. Kilkenny. The collections fuse the vibrant colour & raw beauty of semi- precious stones with the amazing colour innovation from Swarovksi Crystals. I am constantly inspired by the beautiful materials that we use, the amazing luminosity of gemstones, constant invention of Swarovski and timeless elegance of freshwater pearls.
K Kajoux all started a few years ago with an impromptu visit to a bead shop near St Georges Arcade in Dublin after which I made a very cool but badly finished necklace that my friends in work begged me to replicate. A quick YouTube tutorial or 100 later and I had gotten to grips with the techniques. Some of the very early designs are still available today like the ever popular Bindi Necklace and Bracelet. I sold my designs at craft fairs around the country for a few years before I had the opportunity to have K Kajoux stocked in the fantastic Kilkenny Design Centre and more brilliant stockists followed from there.
K Kajoux Jewels is registered with the Design & Craft Council of Ireland.
