    Kim says her grandmother often told her “The most important tools you possess are your own two hands.” She has applied hers with skill and dedication to her passions and was rewarded with the deep satisfaction crafting by hand can bring.

     

    Remarkable Handmade Necklaces & Earrings by Jill Love

    Jill’s jewelry is inspired by her passion for gemstones, the mountains, the rivers and the ever changing colors of the sky. By combining a variety of gemstones with silver, she creates designer jewelry pieces of understated elegance, very tactile, dimensional and wearable.
