Kenneth Pillsworth

We met Kenneth in February and are thrilled to be representing him at Carolina Creations!

Kenneth Pillsworth’s interest in the arts began very early on. Kenneth began his very first jewelry apprenticeship with renowned jeweler William Scholl in 1987.

Kenneth’s time with William would set the precedent for his interests and expectations for this medium. It was this experience in hindsight that would lay the foundation for Kenneth’s career as a jeweler.

In the fall of 1990 Kenneth attended SUNY New Paltz with a concentration in painting. Under the recommendation of William Scholl, Kenneth began working with Jeffrey Allen Jewelers part time while attending classes.

In the summer of 1992 Kenneth began his apprenticeship on Martha's Vineyard, with jewelers Paul D’Olympia and Richard Hamilton. It wasn’t long before Kenneth made the commitment to become a jeweler himself. Kenneth’s ability to take a piece of something from each mentor, has given him a well rounded foundation from which to build his own career and ideas.

In 1996 Kenneth Pillsworth and three other jewelers formed the Edgartown Jewelers Studio. Kenneth continued to share space until 1998 when he decided to create his own studio in his home.

Kenneth is working in sterling silver, titanium, copper and brass.

Here is some of his work, beautiful. Click here to see the details!
