This golden goddess shines brightly! ✨I remember first meeting Kim: she told me about how she got into dealing jewelry from the 60s and 70s, way back when on some rad journeys through New York and London. Until then I hadn't been into fine jewelry, what I had seen felt like grandma stuff - so I just wore fashionable costume. Then enters KIM to introduce wild, funky, cheeky, high-style, surreal, brutalist, free-form beauty made by artists of the 20th century - NOT grandma stuff at all.
Ever since I've been looking, watching auctions closely, learning, researching designers and looking up bench jewelers. I'm still learning everyday, always looking, and getting closer and closer to understanding my own evolving taste. It helps to know someone who is not only knowledgeable but kindly and freely shares knowledge so valuable to enthusiasts early-on, like me. This way, I can be confident finding and getting what fits my own personal taste and I'll know exactly where to get it.
