I’m Kim, I design and hand make jewellery from my home studio in Perth, Western Australia.

Jewellery has been a been a big love for me for as long as I can remember.

Looking through family treasures and discussing the meaning behind each piece was something I did often with my beautiful Mum and Nanna when I was small. I became so obsessed with this that I went on to complete tertiary studies in jewellery design and metalsmithing.

All art is a vessel for connection and making it is soul food, when we care for our souls we are better humans. And the world sure needs better humans.

What fascinates me most with jewellery and metal art is the story telling aspect. It has potential to last for centuries, millenniums even, allowing the stories and meaning that attach themselves to each piece live on and on, so as well as these beautiful pieces of wearable art you have an almost eternal object that threads and connects so many lives and stories together. Magic.

I am inspired by my biggest loves and greatest creations, my children.

Benjamin And The Moon is named after my oldest son. The moon was something he marvelled at as a baby; it was one of his first words. His wonder at the moon as little one reminds me of how I feel when creating pieces and my connection to him and the earth. Also the rebirth I experienced becoming a Mother, and his gift of choosing me.

My design style is fun, whimsical and nature influenced.

The focus of my work is high quality finish and craftsmanship, originality and ethically sourced materials. It means the world to me to be honouring women with every item I make and even more so when the client is involved in designing their own bespoke piece. The recipient is in the forefront of my mind as I work on each item so I do hope that my energy, intention and love for what I do is carried through into the jewellery.
