Kent, a self-described "former academic" who found herself drawn to a more hands-on line of work, produces pieces that display a new side of fine jewelry, as she utilizes materials like champagne diamonds and black gold to express her ultra-modern aesthetic. In advance of her trunk show this Saturday, March 8 at Goldyn, the New York-based designer spoke with Westword about her creation process and where she gets the inspiration for her futuristic, wearable art.

When A.J. Machete and Lianna K. were thinking of moving their custom tailor and dressmaking ventures out of New York City, Denver called.
