Designer Kelly Dent founded Aviary Jewelry in 2007. Influenced by her surroundings growing up in California's beautiful Bay Area, she focuses her line on the graceful shapes of birds, feathers and other interpretations of movement. The line has developed over the years to include other natural shapes and motifs, each of which are cast in precious metals that give the designs their bold weight and depth. Crafting each Aviary piece by hand in her studio, Kelly's aim is to create eye-catching adornments that become unique statements on each owner.

While the Aviary line is primarily sold in Los Angeles, the line is beginning to branch out into boutiques across the United States and fine retailers around the world. In addition to various mentions in high profile fashion blogs over the last couple years, the line has been seen infiltrating young Hollywood as well as the music scene. Aviary Jewelry can be seen gracing the necks and arms of such high profile musicians as Johnny Marr, Alison Mosshart, Liela Moss of The Duke Spirit, and members of Kasabian, and the Silversun Pickups.
