Kimberly Kropf creates one of a kind and limited line jewellery in sterling silver and gold. "My goal as a jewellery artist is to inspire and design pieces that are comfortable, affordable, and instill elegance in everyday wear." Using a variety of methods, Kimberly sculpts each piece by hand from raw materials, making each piece truly unique and one of a kind."My inspiration comes from my methods. Whether it be a type of casting, roller print, reticulation or stone setting, I base my designs on the beauty of each individual piece of material."Artist StatementMy current work is exploring contrast in a wearable art piece and reworking classic techniques with a modern and elegant flare. Cuttlefish casting is a rudimentary jewellery technique I’ve adapted to create series pieces. These pieces contrast the rough texture of cuttle bone with sleek and modern high polish finishes. My printed pieces use traditional damask and floral patterns with smooth jewellery shapes, bringing the ornamental to simple jewellery designs.
