I'm Keri Close and here's

a little bit more about me!


I was raised in Wichita, KS. but moved to Los Angeles in 1993 - to pursue my Masters in Social Work at USC...and to be with my now husband, Eric Close.  I am the mom of two wacky teen-age girls.


Besides my passions for making jewelry (thank you to my older sister Gigi who got me started!) and our work with the Africa Foundation,

I love being a wife and mom.

 But I also love wine, watching and playing tennis and golf,  going on girlfriend trips, BBC's Pride & Prejudice, travelling the world, Bend, Oregon and reading Historical fiction.  My other two "furry" children -  Labrador retrievers, Henry & Daisy - shower me with unconditional love and make me get outdoors everyday!

I praise God for the gifts of my family and my friends and the opportunity to be His Hands and Feet in the world!
