Hi! I’m Kim, from the armpit state of NJ, currently living in Shanghai. I’ve always tinkered around by doing both marketing & studio art at NYU and after dabbling in sculpture, and finally getting into a introduction to jewelry class, I’ve been hooked completely and unconditionally in love! I’ve always been generously supported and encouraged by friends and family to start my own business–and here we are.
cukimber was conceived in June 2009 as a seedling of my imagination while I was living in Japan. After collecting as many supplies as I could since then from New York, Hiroshima, Tokyo, Hong Kong, Shanghai, and where ever else I travel, I decided to finally produce a collection that people could buy, and finally build a website where they could as well! Every design is created by me from start to finish and every piece should have an organic, raw, and connected feeling. Ok, don’t mean to get too deep–the real purpose is the jewelry to be a cute accessory to the cute YOU. Enjoy. Starting with a bunch of earrings, and then going into necklaces, bracelets, hair accessories, and clothing. At least that’s the dream. If I write it down I am now liable for making it happen, right? In my free time I work on a cooking blog too, which is here. I also do freelance event planning which includes things like this and this.
Obviously open to all feedback, positive and negative as well as requests for custom designs. E-mail me anytime at firstname.lastname@example.org and I pinky-swear promise that I will reply!
