ARTIST'S STATEMENT

ABOUT THE ARTIST

Jewellery making has been a lifelong practice of Kimberley Price. “I create because I have to. It’s as necessary as breathing.”

Her work utilizes classic components and techniques worked in a contemporary manner. Currently her preferred combinations are those of vintage and antique pieces worked with semi precious or glass beads and old silver. Inspired by the art of other cultures, she may string, for example, antique silver beads from the Turkoman of northern Afghanistan with 19th C Venetian trade beads. 

Alternatively, she’ll bring out her saw and torch to pair a vintage Bakelite dress clip or a contemporary Fordite cabochon with sterling silver to create a unique statement ring. 

Occasionally she’ll put away the big beads and pull out her seed beads. Here she meticulously picks through containers of these tiny orbs, and one by one, weaves together bright, graphic, one of a kind wearable art. These pieces take their inspiration, in part, from Native North American and African beadworkers. 

Kim's work has been seen in numerous international competitions and bead and jewellery related publications over the years. This includes a cover Profile in Step by Step Beads and a number of pieces in the The Beader's Color Palette, by Margie Deeb.

The jewellery Kim creates is composed of different styles worked individually or in combination. The main focus being vintage beads of silver and glass, semi-precious stones and beadwork.

Through the utilization of these components she creates an international souk of design
