Our name - Kiena Jewelley.
Did she exist? Well we would like to think that she did. KIENA is a rare medieval name. She would have been Saxon, born in the Kingdom of Wessex about 1045 AD. Her family would have been of chieftain stock, based around Wessex, with distant connections, by marriage, to the powerful "Godwinsons" line, so she would have known Edith, the wife of Edward the Confessor. A highly educated lady, Queen Edith was skilled in languages and the arts, including fine jewellery. As members of her family would have been masters of the crafts, including gold work, KIENA was associated with fine jewellery. Doubtless she would have also been familiar with fine weaving and embroidery and probably, as others in her family, wore fashionable clothes.
