I wish I could give more than 5 stars, because Kim at SimpleTwist Jewlery is wonderful! I placed a special order to send to a friend, and Kim worked with me even when I accidently gave her the wrong address. In the end, my friend absolutely loved the necklace, and I could not be happier with my experience.

About

I make simple timeless jewelry that you put on and never want to take off.

Hi I'm Kim! I recently moved from Nashville, TN to the end of the road...a tiny town in Northern Minnesota. I took the past year off from making jewelry because I had a baby...and when he was only a few weeks old, my husband took a new job which moved us twice in a single year. To say the least, it has been quite a whirlwind, and definitely an adventure!

From a very young age I loved making things, particularly small things. I would make all kinds of bracelets using materials of string, beads, hemp and bandanas. I gave them to my family and friends and loved watching them wear them until they eventually fell off. I studied Art and Business at Loyola Marymount University. During my sophomore year I came across a jewelry metalsmithing class and instantly fell in love! In 2005 I interned with Allie Friedman of ALF Jewelry & Metals. The following year I worked as a Production Designer for Patricia Candido Brazilian Jewelry Design. I ended up taking a few years off from jewelry making when I landed a job with Apple Inc. Some of my best life skills and experiences came from working for the widely known "Think Different" company.

In 2009 married an incredibly loving and talented man and we moved from Los Angeles to Nashville, TN. We met an amazing circle of friends who were all artists, dreamers and makers, and my desire to create with my hands began to spur again. These friends helped me realized where my true passions lie and supported me in my dreams. So in the Fall of 2010 Simple Twist Jewelry was born.

My style comes from a random day in college where I took a piece of silver wire and twisted it into a ring. A ring that I instantly loved as well as my girlfriends. It was using this ring design and pushing myself to create an entire line around it that became Simple Twist Jewelry.

Today you will find me keeping up with my curiously busy 1 year old, Cody, along with our dog & cat who keeps our house fun and full of entertainment! During naps and late nights you will find me busy in my home studio twisting away while listening to a good audiobook or singer/songwriter style music

Thanks for visiting! Find me on Facebook or Instagram, say hello, and stay tuned for flash sales and discounts!

    Hi I'm Kim! Thank you for visiting Simple Twist. I love working with my hands and seeing how a single strand of wire can take it's own unique twist into a beautiful piece of jewelry.
