Artist Bio

My name is Kim and I am owner, designer and creator at Wild Rain Designs.   I am an artisan jewelry designer & self-taught metalsmith from Oregon, living just outside of Portland.  I have been a lover of jewelry ever since I can remember.  My first gemstone jewelry purchase was a beautiful vintage turquoise and silver ring found in an antique store when I was about 15.  I have played around with stones and metals on and off my whole life. I am also passionate about the environment we live in so try and incorporate recylced materials into as much as my designs as possible, using recycled copper and silver, old leather items and cool little things I pick up on my life journey.   I love using stones in my pieces.....to me there is nothing more beautiful than things made by nature.

I am also member #1210 of SRAJD (Self Representing Artist in Jewelry Designer) meaning my items are not mass produced and totally made by me.  Thank you for supporting handmade.
