NYC OPERA TRIP 2013- KIMBERLY MCDONALD JEWELRY STUDIO PRIVATE TOUR NYC
FEBRUARY 1, 2013 @ 6PM
KIMBERLY MCDONALD STUDIO, NYC
Kimberly McDonald has always had a deep love and appreciation for nature and these attributes have found their way into her fine jewelry line. The North Carolina native, now based in New York City, has created an entire collection using natural and organic materials such as agates and geodes, complimented by natural/untreated fine materials such as diamonds, raw emeralds, and baroque pearls. McDonald’s commitment to honoring nature is further underscored by her use of reclaimed gold and wood, and recycled diamonds and other precious stones.
“There is such an abundance of material out there, we need not continue to harvest many of the materials needed to create. I like to think of each creation as an extension of what nature has given us and we strive to preserve the integrity of the material and its unique energy. We also strive to reuse rather than reap. Jewelry was initially created to carry symbolic talismans and stones of energy or import. I believe it should still have that meaning and that we can accomplish this without pillaging nature.”
