About Kit

I am NOT taking any jewelry work at this time as I am now MAYOR of Gig Harbor.

I ran for mayor because I am passionate about Gig Harbor. I want to preserve what drew my family to this unique town. I am motivated above all by God, by my wife, my children, my friends, my community, and the people who helped and encouraged me to become mayor. As a result I won this past Nov. by over 71%. We have a lot of issues that need to be addressed. I will work on those issues as mayor. But above all, I will help preserve the character and culture of Gig Harbor. Please visit my home page for phone numbers and e-mail numbers if you wish to contact me.

I retired 3 years ago from my retail store after 28 years. There is a slide show on my website that shows my history of making jewelry. It shows a great history from age 13 to age 46, ten years ago when we had had our 20th anniversary in Gig Harbor. As time permits I will be creating a limited amount of pieces for my customers as well as for shows. I will be doing this again at some point when time will allow as mayor. We also have a beautiful selection of jewelry from our inventory. But there is quite a lot already shown. Feel free to e-mail me or call to ask about that piece you so desire..

I look forward to creating more fine jewelry for you down the road when I get a grip on our town. We also have an extensive selection of semi precious and very rare precious stones. Faceted and non faceted.

Though times will change some things will stay the same, The quality of our work, the affordable price range and the professional attitude we will exhibit. If it says Kit  on it, you know its handmade.

Since age 13 Kit Kuhn has been creating finished products in metal with determination, quality and interest. At this age he was also selling his work in stores and apprenticing.
