Biography:

Kimberley attended Buckinghamshire Chilterns University College and graduated in 2005 with First Class Honours.  After graduation she showcased her work at New Designers and won the New Designers Goldsmiths Award for Jewellery.  Kimberley has exhibited at many major exhibitions including International Jewellery London, Dazzle London Fashion Week.

Inspired by floral organic forms, Kimberley’s beautiful designs are enhanced with intricate hand-pierced patterns and delicate textures; creating unique contemporary jewellery. Proportions, composition and scale are an important concern in her work.  Kimberley’s inspiration has a broader context the consideration of the Golden Section and Divine Proportion, as well as Chaos Theory; this allows meaning to be attached to each piece.

‘Order in Chaos’ and the ‘Butterfly Effect’ ranges are carefully hand pierced to give an intricate and delicate design, which subtly reflect the meaning behind each piece.   Adding to the ranges is ‘Capture’ a modern take on the traditional pearl, and ‘Tangled Heart’ a contemporary heart. Kimberley’s Men’s range, ‘Torn’, shows strong solid lines with defined detail in rugged blackened fractures.

Bold and beautiful necklaces, dynamic cuffs and vibrant rings will add impact to any outfit.
