Kim’s love of Jewellery manufacture and design stemmed from a naturally creative flair on which she has expanded throughout her years of manufacturing and designing hand crafted, quality jewellery in 9 and 18 ct, yellow and white gold, platinum and silver. Kim has been designing and creating world class Jewellery since her apprenticeship training as a Goldsmith began in 1990 in East London.
Gold Impressions, Kim’s first entrepreneurial step, was taken in July 1994 in Cape Town, as a jewellery design studio at home where she designed and created many bespoke pieces, offering a unique home-visit service. In December 1996 She relocated her home studio to Durban. In 2004 Gold Impressions’ first store opened at Christians Village in Old Main Road, Hillcrest. A few years later the jewellery design store moved across the road into the new shopping centre, Hillcrest Corner.
In July 2010, Kim purchased Studio 39 Jewellery Design, managing, consulting and designing for both stores’ workshops. In April 2015 the Gold Impressions store was closed to allow Kim to focus her attention on Studio 39 Jewellery Design.
Kim’s attention to detail, love of design and desire to create exquisite jewellery best suited to her clients’ needs, has led her to create countless unique works of art, delighting clients around the world. Studio 39’s Head Goldsmith, Des Daniel, formally of Daniel the Jewellers in Harare, complements Kim’s style, dedication to the craft of jewellery making, and love of beautiful design.
