While other girls were collecting Barbies, Keaton Sanders was collecting rocks. Enamored by gems and minerals from an early age, Keaton has been a jewelry designer in some form or fashion since as long as she can remember. This is the story of how a native Georgian moved to Nashville in 2011 and turner her Pyrite passions into a successful jewelry design partnership at Seraphine Design.
Art and jewelry is in the Sanders blood. Keaton’s grandmother is Betty Foy Sanders, the 74th First Lady of Georgia and wife of Gov. Carl Sanders. During her tenure as First Lady (1963-1967), Betty Foy Sanders was a change agent for art in Georgia, dedicating her efforts towards the construction of several Fine Arts buildings in the University System of Georgia. One of those was the betty Betty Foy Sanders department of Fine Arts building on Georgia Southern's campus, named for her father.
