About Me

My name is Kimberly Kiefer and I own my own business that I named Beautifully Broken. I am a single mother of 3 kids and I started my business 7 years ago in order to make some extra “fun” money for our family. I was inspired by some beautiful beaded belt buckles I saw at a women’s expo that spring. They were a little out of my budget, so I tapped into my creative juices and decided to make my own. Around the same time, my friend showed me how to make a mosaic picture for my back yard. She used broken pottery pieces that she purchased for a hefty amount. I am a runner and I instantly thought of all the discarded glass I see along the stretch of road. I decided to start collecting a little glass in my running pack on each run that I went on. I made my first buckle out of my grandmother’s old necklace that I had tucked away in my jewelry box for a number of years and some old glass I picked up. It turned out pretty cool, so I decided to make a few more. I showed some of my friends and they thought maybe I had something special so I decided to create my own business.

I now make jewelry, belt buckles, patio art and home décor that is made out of broken recycled glass. I love how the name of the business was born- I was out to dinner with some friends and we were brainstorming on a cool name. One of my friends said “What about Beautifully Broken?” we instantly all KNEW this was the name! Not a second later our waiter dropped a wine glass and it shattered on the floor! We all knew this was a sign that Beautifully Broken was the right name! (Yes, I even asked the waiter to scoop up some of the glass so I could keep it as a momento). Some of the glass I use is from the roadside, donated by friends, found at second hand stores and even donated by local windshield replacement companies. I use wine bottle, beer bottle, windshield, safety glass, stained glass etc. I have found my purpose and passion and absolutely love what I do!

My dream is to help people and make meaningful things for people. I have taken family heirlooms that were broken and made some amazing things out of the shards of glass. I want to make a difference in people’s lives and put a smile on their faces.

WELCOME!

Longtime Phoenix resident and mother of three, I am the heart and soul behind Beautifully Broken. My idea to transform trash to treasure was born during a run across the long stretch on Pecos Road in Phoenix, Arizona. I noticed scores of broken glass bits sprinkled along the road. Carefully collecting the fragments, I wondered what I could do with them when, like so many creative ideas, it just came over me – belt buckles and Jewelry.
