Kelly Tully grew up in Chico, California where the community has been a constant stream of encouragement, support and inspiration. Kelly’s love for crafting Jewelry sprouted from living with her Aunt Maymay in Colorado. After learning the basics, Kelly began to take more advanced classes in metalsmithing. She has taken metalsmithing classes at Bolder Metal Arts studio, Santa Cruz community college, and graduated from the Bench Jeweler Technician program at Revere Academy in San Francisco in 2017.
Being a small business itself, Moonlight Tully strives to buy materials locally, as well as sell to local stores throughout California. In supporting small business, communities can grow, trust and inspire in ways that are lost in the large corporate world.
Off the bench, Kelly is often chasing her dog Lupin, who is chasing squirrels and sneaking butter from the counter. You may also find her getting lost in a Sudoku puzzle or buying excessive amounts of houseplants for her home :)
