Artist - Kendria Thompson
This is me, Kendria Thompson, in my element (my in-home studio). I'm a self-taught metalsmith and lapidary artist who has always had a yearning to create things with my hands. I started the journey towards becoming a metalsmith in 2015 & a lapidarist in 2017. Although I started in 2015, Solid Treasures, LLC has been around since August of 2012. Before metalsmithing and lapidary, I designed beaded gemstone jewelry.
I have always found tranquility in being able to take raw elements and turn them into wearable art or decor. It's extremely rewarding to see my art adorned by people all over the world! After having a difficult pregnancy with my son, who spent some time in the NICU, I have a newfound sense of appreciation for life and having the ability to enjoy it. Those moments were eye-openers for me, and I'm thrilled to be on this journey through this life that allows me to create freely and spread the love.
I enjoy being able to connect with you all through my passion for metalsmithing and life itself. Feel free to follow my forever evolving journey on Instagram, where you will occasionally see behind the scenes shots of what I'm currently working on and I may pop my kids and pup up there occasionally.
So beautiful!!! Thank you for yet another fantastic piece! I have purchased several rings and a set of earrings from this shop and am always overjoyed at the beauty and craftsmanship! Thank you thank you THANK YOU for giving me another piece that I am proud to show off!
I adore my new Floral hoops! They look so cute layered with my other smaller hoops. I own multiple treasures from Kendria & she never seizes to amaze me with her beautiful craftsmanship! Thank you ♡
This ring is absolutely gorgeous and of the highest quality. I never take it off and where ever I go, I receive comments on the unusual design and the stunning stones. I also own a necklace from Solid Treasures and it is just a lovely. If you are looking for high quality, custom handcrafted jewelry, look no further than Solid Treasures.

I LOVE Kendria's work. I sent her my stones and wanted some hairsticks that were similar to something she'd had listed. She made these little customs and I'm absolutely smitten with them. Perfect little statement pieces.
Gorgeous earrings!!! Kendria is very friendly and an amazing artist! She is very responsive and great at communication. I think it’s awesome she cuts the stones for some of her pieces as well. High quality work, thank you!!
