About

Hello and welcome to my shop :) My name is Kim and I live in Saskatoon, SK Canada. I have been making my jewelry for myself, friends, and family for about 6 years now. It all started when I picked my first beading magazine and thought "I can do this". Growing up my sister and I were always doing crafty things, thanks to our mom, but nothing really stuck with me the way jewelry does. And since I was in school and couldn't afford to buy any, why not make it for myself?

So it was mainly a hobby while I was in university, but when I graduated I decided to take it a little more seriously. Now thanks to a year in the "real world" and a well timed recession (for me anyways), I am going into business for myself. Incidently, I have a Bachelor of Science in Geology. Highly employable, but very economy influenced, and Canada's economy is all about our natural resources…
