Kim Victoria pieces are designed and carved, by me, in my Melbourne studio. The completed pieces are made using the lost-wax casting method and each jewel is unique and retains traces of the making process.
I draw inspiration from the wild and rugged Australian landscape, architectural structures and geological topographies. These fascinations have followed me through a degree in Fine Art, majoring in Gold and Silversmithing.
Each piece is delicate, complex and thoughtfully sculpted from quality, timeless materials such as gold, sapphires, coloured gems and opals.
As my practice has evolved over the past decade, I have formed relationships with reputable gem dealers and Australian miners and stone cutters. I am particularly obsessed with Australian sapphires, Argyle champagne diamonds and Coober Pedy Opals and take pride in sourcing the perfect stone for you or your loved one.
Wherever possible, the metals used in my work is recycled and there is an emphasis on Australian gems. You can read more about the provenance of the stones in each piece in the product descriptions.
I look forward to welcoming you to my Brunswick East studio.
I acknowledge the Wurundjeri Woi-Wurrung people as the Traditional Custodians of the lands and waters on which I gratefully live and work. I respectfully recognise Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and their Elders past and present.
Always was, always will be.
