About

My name is Kim Ries with Creative Eye Studio. I have been creating jewelry for several years, but have enjoyed being creative all my life. I took drawing and painting classes in high school and college, but had a long span of non-productivity.

I love photography and use a Nikon digital SLR. And it’s a lot of fun to combine my love for photography with the jewelry. Two art forms in one!
