I'd like to know more about her "creation process"...because one crummy sketch is a lot different from doing serious work. Who really did the work here?

The jewelry website has her amaaaazing creation as their top image and it's huge, so you can see the details (imo they look pretty shabby and definitely not well-crafted once seen close-up. The fox and moon are kinda blobby and the hand is just plain weird...which may be a Kenners giveaway since she's always had trouble drawing hands. Plus it definitely seems like the lengths are way uneven). Nitpicking, but relevant if someone's buying nice jewelry instead of just getting to brag they bought a Kenna Original (lol).

https://www.bohindiestream.com/

 

 

Very few companies are going to produce their own components. I haven't ever heard of this particular one, but I'm somewhat familiar with jewelrymaking. It looks like this company is getting their components from somewhere that isn't aliexpress, which is great and speaks to their quality.

Here are almost/the exact gold plated brass ear wires with a small bead before the eye (loop) for the charm. I found them on Fire Mountain Gems, and they make decent components and have a reliable business. They also offer rainbow-coated quartz points that are side drilled, but are currently out of stock in clear, drilled ones. They offer other colors like pink or gold coated, and the offer rainbow, clear, undrilled points.

ETA: A lot of times, the easiest available ear wires are the type that has a very rounded hook and has a spring and ball before the eye. I'm pointing this out because the business owner had to seek out and choose this specific style of ear wire. It's not the easiest choice.

I strongly doubt that Kenna actually made these earrings, and I'd wager that she more had idea-type input, like, she said, "I want a moon and a fox and stuff that fits my current aesthetic" and then the business owner or their employees put something together and put Kenna's name on it. Also, Kenna's all the way in Japan, while the company looks to be in the US. I'll keep looking for other components of the earrings, if anyone's interested.

Long time lurker first time poster, but I made this real quick to point this out. Her editing only took 3 minutes to correct.

I'm an artist myself, and I know how it can be when you edit a photo or draw something and post it immediately, then come back to it again and see how weird it actually looks. This just makes me feel like it was a lazy last minute photo and edit.

This is great info! I think you're probably 100% right, i.e. all the parts are pre-made and not original to Kenners. I also definitely agree that a custom-designed set of components would be hard to do unless Kenners had made sculpted models and sent them to the manufacturer, who then did the process of making those models into casts, etc. etc. That would likely be very expensive, way beyond $40 per pair, unless they thought they'd be selling crazy amounts.

The creator, from the about page

tl:dr? The company is run by a fairly successful 24 year old- someone about the same age as Kenna. This person started the business at age 19, and now has sales across the globe. Idk if this is her full-time income, but it's still pretty great.

From the shipping page, the business is based in Florida.

 Has Kenna been to Florida lately? How did she come across this person? The company's press/as seen on page has a very lengthy list of influencers who wear these pieces. Someone more in the know than I am could comb through this to find a connection.

Hello 👋🏻 
I took a break from posting here due personal reasons, like few days and yet Kenna is back with more flipping bullshit. I know I shouldn’t care about someone like her but oh, f*ck she is dangerous for the ASD-community. She is making mockery of this condition and to all of us real “atypicals”. 

The stigma and harmful stereotypes are already out there and we have just started to raise our voices, specially women/girls. I HIGHLY recommend ya’ll to watch a videoof the YT SSK (no I don’t have any associon with them, I’m a hermit). A teenage girl who has ASD, ADHD and anxiety disorder  (I am clinically diagnosed with all these as well, hence why I strongly recommend it because I relate so much to her story). 

Kenna is ignorant, a shame to the internet. I am flipping home on an extended sick leave, feeling like a damn leech who’s getting governmental benefits even though I’ve worked 10+ years and payed taxes for all that—I had no choice but to fake my persona. It was matters of survival, socially. I believed the lie that work is everything and I’m naive, easily manipulated (better now) etc because I believe what people say, literally. I used to be so bad at telling lies.

This put a huge stress on me, and I am overly sensitive to stress in general. At the end, I barely knew who I truly was. I’d gone through so many versions of myself, cherry picking to fit in, putting on filter as I usually call it. Me but not quite, get it?

Because all of above plus more reasons I won’t type because I’m already monologueing. This lead me into a MDD (major depression disorder), burnout, anxiety disorder, discovery of a long repressed eating disorder and panic disorder. I’m not here to gain any pity, please respect that, I’m just giving information that may or may not give you all a better understanding of ASD as a whole. My current therapists and doctors have explained its sadly common amongst people on the spectrum to at some point in their lives experience any of the mental illnesses mentioned above. 

Our brains were developed differently, that’s why I cannot stress enough how IMPORTANT regular therapy treatments are for people on the spectrum. 
I know in my heart that I will probably need to be in therapy for the rest of my life. Maybe not as often as now, during my severe depression, but I have so much to learn.especially need when I want to enter motherhood. A twitch streamer once said “When you find the right therapist, all you’ll be able to do is cry uncontrollably.” 

And this is just my experience so I can only speak for myself but antidepressants along with various therapy treatments have done wonders for me and I think I’ll be in them for many years/forever. I honestly believe because of how my brain is “wired”, my serotonin receptors don’t work or react like they should and that stress also might have knocked them out of function. 

Sorry for the long rant, but I’m sort of hoping because of Kenna’s own stupidity to promote her own PULL-thread that some of her followers reads this and maybe becomes less scared to seek out professional help. Forgive me if I speak the privileged language—I come from a society that has been built on socialism. I understand not everyone can afford this, but I can’t speak from any other perspective than my own.

Wait....why does she think being autistic means showing no emotion/being emotionless?? Like....shouldn't you be excited about something you created??? Like I get it if it's a boring AF haul but girl...you designed a pair of earrings...is that not something to be happy and "bubbly" over?? Like wtf I would be ecstatic to show my followers this thing I've been working on. You're basically saying you don't give a shit about your own fucking collab.

 

I don’t know what kind of fantasy textbook she’s gotten this from but eh, I’ve always been teased to be too sensitive. The times I might act like “cold” is when I’m just being very honest and blunt and the receiver is offended by accident.

I don’t like things I do on my free time — I ADORE THEM. I am all in or nothing at all. Which leads to me monologuing whenever I get asked about my interests/hobbies/projects. Don’t ever ask me how I feel about The Sims, okay 🤣 this is why I’ve been bullied. Because I’ve been “weird”, “intense” “too much”. I think my ADHD kinda amplifies this but the obsessive tendencies I believe comes from my autism disorder. 

Yeah like everything she does except fantasising about having another personality than the one she's got

It's like when she said 'I'm not an idiot I can maintain a fluid speech and eye contact' she's basically insulting autistic people

 

I have fluid speech, I’m great at talking but not so good at conversations. I hate eye contact but I have my methods to appear looking someone in the eye without actually doing it, but I hate actual eye contact. And whenever my brain wanders off somehow or I’m nervous or feeling overwhelmed, I tend to look everywhere BUT the person I’m talking to. 

I’m legit paranoid to type more about my condition because I know Kenna stalks this page or her white-knights-in-naively-armor will report back to her. Don’t want her to rip off my story, experiences, personality etc to give more authenticity to her “autism

When talking about the creating process she mentions the person from bohiendiestream wanting something to do with astronomy, and then she says she was also for that because she also "really loves astronomy". Liking tumblry stars aesthetics is not the same as liking astronomy. She "likes" all those study fields and areas of knowledge but never goes beyond using them as an aesthetic. I can't remember ever seeing her truly invested in studying something, she picks up something that looks pretty for pictures and then suddenly she has always really loved that subject and has been forever totally obsessed. Really curious about how this attempt at dark academia she is hinting will develop. Please, Kenna,  do illuminate us with your shallow aesthetic knowledge!

 

this also get me offended because I love cosmos and the studies of it since I was a child. Stephen Hawking was one of my greatest role-models along with Bill Gates and Einstein. It’s thanks to the Einstein and his theory about time that made me particularly obsessed with black holes and I built with my then boyfriend my first telescope in my late teens 👀 I can’t be on social media in that extent because ... um... my interest and hobbies eats up all my time 🙄

I went on the bohindiestream Instagram page and comments were turned on for the Kenna’s post. I saw that there were two posts that called her out for being a problematic youtuber but they responded that Kenna was really sweet and nice to work with. I wish I had taken a screenshot but now they turned off comments. I’m assuming that it’s because they didn’t want people flooding their page with criticism.

I definitely don't want to sound insensitive to what you've gone through/what you're going through, but if seeing Kenna's behavior bothers you, why not just stop following her social media/thread? We all know by now that she's never going to take our constructive criticism and it seems like it would be healthier for you to just avoid her. I know from experience that surrounding yourself with negative people or things will only make your own issues worse.
Kenna will continue to use the diagnosis as she sees fit, picking and choosing symptoms- regardless of whether or not the diagnosis is accurate. We can't do anything about it. She obviously reads her thread and she is still defensive about being called out for faking.

I just don't want you to sacrifice your mental health by focusing on someone who will never change, who will never be the proper spokesperson for ASD.

 

oh again, miscommunication on my part. I’m not native in English, it might show sometimes in my writing. 

Bothers me is really annoys me and I sort of like to observe the studpity of certain individuals. It encourages me to work harder on myself, on my own person, how I act and behave towards others, what I want to achieve in life and so on* I can tell you that I’m almost recovered to the point where I can go back into society, thanks to the amazing support team I have around me! But thank you for being so considerate of me and my wellbeing 😊 take it as a sign when I post here, I’m feeling good and confident. Whenever I don’t feel good, I stay off the internet and go into the woods or get lost in something I love. 

This only gives me adrenaline because I have pretty high thoughts of myself and sometimes they are rather selfish. I’m an Aries/Sagittarius/Scorpio if you’re into astrology so I’m fiery and sometimes a now-it-all-prick. Kenna is pure enjoyment on my part, my number one guilty pleasure after Gossip Girl and One Tree Hill. Better than any crappy reality show tbh 🤣

again, tack; thanks for the concern. I’m also an open book and overshare in general so be careful what you ask for because I, again, tend to monologue. My mentality is very “better safe than sorry” which often translate online to “better give detailed answers than create confusion”. 

*Examples: I’ve been more honest since Kenna started popping up on my radar again, I have had chances to face confrontation and taking it, experience the bliss of responsibility. Kenna does not own all the credit, there’s more than one idiot in the world, but one of my personal selection who collectively helps me be a better human. Books can only teach you so much, real-life observation of human social interactions and behaviors are way more effector for me.

Oh I just checked it out and you're right. Bri mentioned on the other post that the post about kenna's design was 'flooded with salt' so comments were disabled. I'm not surprised since people will probably be dissappointed that a problematic snowflake like kenna has been chosen for the collaboration.

I also noticed that kenna's design is made of components that Bri already featured in her store before so the earring design is basically put together by kenna of components Bri already provided and the description says 'we’ve worked together on this earring design over the past couple months and are so happy to finally share it with you' so I wonder how much of the creativity and beauty in these earrings is really of kenna or if she's just a famous face slapped onto it. (sorry if this sounds a bit negative but I couldn't help but notice that the moon charm and the hand-shaped charm that are featured in kenna's design had been in Bri's previous designs already)

I wish Kenna would take a more positive approach like this, rather than being a brat (24 y.o. one at that smh) that uses masking as an excuse. It could help so many people imo.

Also

I adore you so much lol! Thanks to sharing your struggles, I can relate to you so much. I'm a Taurus/Sagittarius/Scorpio (funnily enough).
