Mackenzie Becker is a self-taught metal-smith based in Kansas City, MO. She has been making jewelry since October of 2017 and working in metals since March of 2018. Her work varies in style from bold statement pieces, empowering feminist imagery, and childhood memories involving insects and plants. She works from her studio, Cherry Pit Collective, a collective of female identifying artists that promote collaboration and community. She values her genuine and slow-made practice to bring beautifully hand-crafted heirloom quality pieces to anyone who wears them.
