Justin Klocke grew up on a small farm in Audubon County, Iowa and continues to draw upon the Mid-west for inspiration in his work. Klocke references the subtle and minimal features of the western Iowa landscape and applies them to jewelry, which is traditionally associated with ornament and luxury. He has worked as a jeweler professionally since 2006, studied in both Rome and Cortona, Italy, and exhibits work nationally.
