I designed this ring for a beautiful young bride. The 14kt rose gold accentuates the diamonds in their luxurious tiara setting.
Take home a ring today from my Pebbles in a Stream series.
Turquoise is so beautiful! The sterling silver with the powder blue is such a great combination!
Inquire for price.
Embrace the outdoors
What do you see? I see a tranquil outdoor mountain range with a shimmering blue lake nestled below…
Check out this gorgeous blue moonstone set in a sterling silver pendant. The texture of the cuttlebone casting really frames the stone well.
Inquire for price.
The curve of the silver dangle evokes the impression of a sailboat heeled over in the wind
Look closely at these handblown glass beads hovering beside long sterling silver dangles. Do they remind you of sailboats in motion?
Inquire for price.
Want to match the color of your favorite Sail Racing Team? The beauty of knowing a custom jeweler is that I can go to the artist who makes these glass beads and order them in any color for you.
Quite a bit heavier than a feather, this pure gold feather ring was shaped first in wax and then cast into gold.
The benefits of knowing a personal custom jeweler: I can make it for you in silver if you like!

Did you know that oak trees are able to survive severe burning?
I added a silver vein to accentuate the shape of these heat-treated hand shaped copper leaves. Becoming even more beautiful after meeting the flame, these heat stressed copper oak leaves symbolize endurance and healing. Priced at $45.
Golden luxury waits in your future…
The deep royal purple of the center sugilite stone calls to your inner millionaire. This heavy golden man’s ring deserves a strong finger. Sugilite is a stone of forgiveness and brings the deep satisfaction of the freedom of your conscience.
Priced at $1800
As you may know, Kimberly teaches Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced Jewelry Fabrication courses the Creative Arts Group in Sierra Madre, CA. Her classes are one night a week for 10 week sessions all throughout the year. For more information on joining a class, please visit the Creative Arts Group website here.
Gail, a two year long student of Kimberly’s gave a very nice review of the class, and showcased one of her projects:
Our last project was a pendant and stone setting. It was challenging because we did prong setting for the first time with multiple stones of different sizes. We had to use different soldering options like; large piece to small, sweat soldering and attaching bails. This project pushed us with increased difficulty and improved our skills to another level.
Kimberly is a very knowledgeable teacher and her class is fun. It’s very social with amicable students. I can recommend this class the those who would like to try learning a new hobby and have fun doing it.

Chris, a student of 7 years, had chosen her favorite piece to showcase and gave a good idea of the techniques learned in class.
I call this piece “Mein Schatz” (My Sweetheart)I chose Sterling silver to create these sweet Giraffes as a pin. My favorite tool is the jewelers saw. I was able to make the body details by cutting through the metal with a 4/0 blade. I wanted a 3-D look, so I soldered a backing on for stability. The heads were lifted up by placing an extra piece of silver under them. I was able to practice my soldering skills with this piece, although soldering has always been difficult for me in the past, I am happy with this project. My inspiration is my daughter and her daughter (my grand-daughter) and the love between them. I hope I was able to stir a little love in peoples heart by creating this piece.
