Based out of Fox Point, WI, Kim Wilson Designs has been creating unique jewelry - lovingly referred to as “small sculptures” - for over 20 years. Originally a florist, her appreciation for nature shines through in designs that seamlessly blend the organic with the industrial; simple, yet complex. Whether working with a fossilized mammoth bone, opals or slate, Kim handcrafts pieces that let the materials speak for themselves, resulting in a stunning, inimitable work of art.
Kim’s process is just as extraordinary as her jewelry. She doesn’t start with a sketch, but with the stone: What shape is it? How does the light hit it? What kind of jewelry does it lend itself to best? Is it a “bracelet day” or an “earring day”? She works endlessly to ensure the main attraction is framed in a way that shows off its best qualities, improvising as the piece reveals itself to her.
