Once again, I am just blown away by all the amazing artists in this city. I love collaborating with all these creative minds for my Dance by Design project. It’s a collaborative, multi-shoot project involving local dancers, fashion designers, and locations around Denver.
For this shoot, ballerina Molly Klug wore two sets of jewelry by MKaltenbach in two different locations. This is part two of the shoot, in the Santa Fe Arts District with Molly wearing MKaltenbach’s Bone Squash Blossom necklace, along with turquoise earrings and a bunch of fun bracelets.
Part one took place in an amazing field of sunflowers. You have to see these photos!
Molly is in her second season with Colorado Ballet’s Studio Company and has been living in Denver for just over a year.
“Dance is first and foremost a way to express myself. I, and I think many dancers, find it so freeing to be able to express my emotions physically. I would also say that in many ways dance is a safe haven for me, in that it is familiar and I know that I can always have it with me if I choose to. I have been dancing for a very long time (started when I was 3) and so it has been a constant in my life for so many years.”
“Megan Kaltenbach started designing jewelry during her free time while she was a full-time model living in the Financial District in Lower Manhattan. In May of 2010 she started making necklaces to fulfill her love for fashion. She chose MKaltenbach for the name of her company to keep the legacy of her last name alive. Meg currently lives in Denver, CO with her husband, blogging and designing for MKaltenbach full time.”
