Kimberly Nogueira

My workbench is strewn with dried seed pods, leaves and twigs collected from my forest walks on the small island I call home.  I walk along the ocean shores here and to these accumulations I add sun-worn driftwood and sea-washed curiosities. My current studio explorations center around these underfoot fragments and my strong emotional reaction to them.

Using tiny antique household objects and vintage childhood toys, I am also examining the fragility and endurance of childhood wonder and its profound effect on our everyday adult lives.

Kimberly Nogueira is a jeweler who lives on an island and her most important source of inspiration is nature.  Motifs of flora and fauna are usually present in her jewels. Through her blog you can feel her enthusiasm as a person who likes to explore, learn about thechniques and materials, and share her experiences. I also suggest you visit her online shop and her Crafthaus page
