"A piece of jewelry is often a piece of art. But it only becomes valuable when emotions are added to it."

Many years ago I had the great privilege of apprenticing under a local Portland, OR goldsmith who taught me the basics of jewelry design and fabrication, wax carving and casting.  The metal bug had bitten hard and I immediately went out and bought my first jeweler's bench and began to build my tool collection.


Inspired and intrigued by the power of the torch, and delighted by the surprise and color patina brings to metal, I began to make my own jewelry and implement those processes into my designs.

I own several pieces of Kimberly's jewelry and I love each piece equally.

For me, Kimberly's esthetic is a perfect blend of understated and statements making.  I add a new piece to my collection every few months!
