Kim originally studied languages and worked abroad as a translator for many years. On her return to England she turned her mind to designing and making jewellery. She is mainly self-taught, but in 2011 completed a stone-setting course and, more recently, a one-year CAD design course at the Birmingham School of Jewellery.


Drawing inspiration from social and global issues, she translates these into minimalist pieces of contemporary jewellery that convey messages about peace, equality and the environment. She works mainly in Sterling silver and gold, adding colour and interest with resin and gemstones. All her pieces are made by hand, using traditional methods and techniques combined with 3D CAD design technology.


Her collection to date includes kinetic rings and a minimalist Sterling silver and resin range. An image of her kinetic rings was used by resin expert Clare John in her book 'Resin Jewellery' and she has been featured in 'Designer Focus' by The Guild of Jewellery Designers.


In 2012, she started creating an online presence, part of which is dedicated to recycling and the environment.
