Announcement   Welcome!

Please note that most items are made to order as I make each piece by hand just for you. If you need something sooner please contact me to see if we can meet your needs. I love nothing more than being at the jeweler's bench making piles of silver dust as I create pieces for my customers. I enjoy working with new color combinations on my enameled pieces so don't hesitate to ask for a custom piece, if the fickle enamels will work with me, I'll make it. I am forever amazed at the endless possibilities with color, sometimes my customers nudge me in a direction I never would have thought of myself. I love happy customers who wear my timeless designs.
xo, Kim

I am pleased to announce that I have been accepted to sell wholesale on etsy. Shop owners, take a look at my linesheet: https://www.etsy.com/wholesale/vendor/79489/linesheet/

Kim, thanks so much for getting this to me before Valentine's Day! My wife loves it and was totally surprised and loved that I went handmade.

About

handmade with love in my sunlit studio in Pawtucket, RI.

My jewelry line emerged slowly. I graduated in 2003 with a Bachelor's Degree in Jewelry and Metals. I had about seven years, which I refer to as 'before craft', where I worked an office job and almost never touched my beloved tools or sheets of silver. Slowly, I started to get my studio in order, designs started to flow in my head, my hands gravitated towards my tools and a small jewelry line came to being. From there I started to play with my enamels, introducing color to my otherwise grey palette. Other design elements came into play, I had vintage jewelry parts cast into silver and bronze to incorporate into my designs giving these pieces a new life and meaning. Now my visions of new jewelry designs grow in my sketchbook while I struggle to keep up on the fabrication end. I wake up every day excited to see what will come next, how I will add to my collections and I continually find myself in awe of just how well my jewelry is received. I am still fumbling and finding my way and for the most part, it has been a great trip.

    When I was a little girl I drew for hours on end which is how I ended up terribly nearsighted. When I wasn't drawing I was taking apart my old jewelry + putting different pieces together to make into new jewelry.

Frequently asked questions

Custom and personalized orders

Please contact me regarding custom orders and if I am able to fulfill your request while maintaining my personal aesthetic I will be happy to work with you.
+ I love discovering new color combinations (enameled and beaded designs) through special requests.
+ If you need a necklace on a longer chain, just ask and know there may be a fee.
+ Note that enamels are fragile, the reason I don't offer them on rings is because I know they won't hold up over time.
+ If you need a different size on a bracelet, please ask and know there may be a fee.
+ Pretty much, ask, if I can do it I will.

Sizing details

+ Please note that most necklaces in my shop are made at a standard 16". Should you need another length, please ask and know there may be a fee.

Care instructions

+ Your jewelry is sent packed in anti-tarnish paper. Please store your shiny objects in its original packaging (if you choose to take it off...) to keep it shiny longer. Putting it in a baggy wrapped in these papers will keep air out and oxidization away.
+ You can use polishing cloths on sterling silver with a shiny finish to get some luster back.
+ To add texture and sheen back to a satin finish (silver and brass) go over it with a scotchbrite pad.
+ The best way for you to care for your jewelry is to wear it!
+ That being said, it is best not to bathe with enamels on. It is glass on metal and fragile, so treat it well.

Gift wrapping and packaging

All of my jewelry comes in a craft color box made of recycled materials and is able to be recycled. The paper lining the box (as well as the cottony cushion) prevents tarnish. These boxes are decorated with a sticker with my branding on it and wrapped with a twine bow. I include thank you notes with all of my orders. If you want something special typed up on my vintage style writer please leave the request in the message to seller at checkout. My packaging has often received praised and I have been told it doesn't need wrapping and is ready to give as a gift right out of the envelope.
