About Me

Box Jewelers by Kimberly J. Munson Nicholson

Custom design jewelry and professional repairs

My passion is to bring visions into reality. As a Master Jeweler, Goldsmith & Gemologist, I work closely with my customers to create unique jewelry pieces, and to help breathe new life into their existing treasures. 40+ years of experience. My business is a personalized jewelery experience, where you can come to me with any design or family heirloom, and I can rework it or make it into something you’ll wear, enjoy, and want to pass on to your family members. My peers in the fine arts say that I provide personal attention, and quality work at a reasonable cost to my customers.

Artists Statement

I find great satisfaction in creating pieces that bring passion to the wearer, thoughts of tradition, love of family, a source of introspective comfort, or a glimpse of wild future dreams. The mental spark could be as simple as recognizing the beauty of form through the use of natural materials. Thus, I am an instigator of inspiration, sharing part of my soul with the world.

Education and Professional Experience

My training as a professional jeweler comes from over 40 years of custom manufacturing with individuals in the jewelry trade.

I’ve worked in the jewelry district in downtown Los Angeles, as well as at local jewelry stores in Covina and Monrovia for 20 years.  I  worked as a bench jeweler at Boxx Jewelers in Monrovia, and was a long-time part of the creative team at Me Pohaly’s Jewelers in Covina. 

I hold degrees as a Graduate Gemologist from GIA, a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Jewelry and Metalsmithing from California State University at Long Beach, and an AA from Pasadena City College in Jewelry and Metalsmithing.

Since 2008, I have been teaching jewelry fabrication classes at The Creative Arts Group in Sierra Madre, and continually display my artwork in their fine art gallery.

Let’s get in contact, and start the creative process!
