Designer Profile | Kim Victoria Jewels.

Kim Victoria Jewels.

Kim Victoria Wearne is a Melbourne-based jeweller and object maker. Her creative practice is built
on narratives and complemented by a love of Australiana and ancient treasures.

Let me tell you a little bit about Kim's background...
She studied at RMIT, completing a Bachelor of Interior Design with first class honours in 2003 and from there,
went on to study a Bachelor of Fine Art at the same institution, majoring in Gold and Silversmithing.
When it comes to her design work, Kim's pieces are timeless, resembling artefacts formed by the Earth itself, delicate and detailed
at further inspection. Opals, vintage diamonds, vibrant gems and solid gold and silver are her jewels of choice. Although her current
Opal Princess Collection 2014 focuses on one jewel specifically, in a celebration of the iconic Australian stone, revealing a beautiful
contrasted aesthetic of toughness and fragility. Rings, opal chokers, earrings and cuff earrings, of greens, blues and pinks;
vintage diamonds and coloured semi-precious gems, are what you would expect to find in the Opal Princess collection.
Each jewel is carefully sculpted to highlight the magical qualities of the opal, guaranteeing that your piece of jewellery is one of a kind.

I, personally, cannot get enough of the stacking of the rings. The rustic, earthy, natural feel is beautiful.

The Kim Victoria Jewels collection is available at the label's e-boutique, aswell as through stockists nationally.
