About

BACKGROUND
Since 1982 PAUL KLECKA has created innovative and inspired jewelry concepts.
Entering college with highly developed artistic and musical abilities, he discovered that the precision of metal techniques coupled with the boundaries imposed by the human form provided a structure that enabled his artistic ideas to blossom, and jewelry became his focus. He continued on to graduate with the Master of Fine Arts Degree in jewelry and metalsmithing.
