Cooked Jewelry was founded by Chuck “Boomie” Key in 2018 in his home town of Portland, Maine. Boomie started working with jewelry at an early age along with his father, award winning gem-cutter/designer, Martin Key. While helping his brother open a restaurant and working in the kitchen Boomie developed a passion for a well made kitchen tool. These venerable forms that have been honed and perfected for hundreds of years in order to perform very specific tasks hold a beauty within them. This beauty is known to anyone who has sliced a ripe tomato with a sharp knife or seared a piece of meat on a piping hot skillet.
This is an homage to these household works of art, a celebration of all things cooked!
