Born To Be Worn by S & T Creations

Creative Eye Studio – Kim Ries

Creative Eye Studio

I met a fellow
Louisville beader a few years ago at a silversmithing class by Don Norris (if you ever have an opportunity,
take his class. You will learn a great deal AND have a great time doing
it).  Kim had taken some silversmithing
courses before and already knew some things about flux and solder and, of
course, a torch.  But we sat across from
each other for 2 days, laughing at each other, being awkward, and asking each
other, “What did he say?”  It was a great ice-breaker.  Plus we both ended up with lovely pieces of jewelry to add to our collection.

Kim is the proud designer and owner of Creative Eye Studio.

She has her own blogspot
blog.  In addition to her jewelry, Kim
takes great pictures, so check out her blog for photos around her home and from
her travels.  Kim is also a member of a
Kentucky Etsy team that meets periodically and is planning a retreat for a
later date.

Kim’s designs are available at her Etsy store .  She loves fleur-de-lis designs, the symbol for all things Louisville and, of course, even more common around Louisville’s own holiday: the Derby!

Kim and I crossed paths at other times, including a job hunt when we both found ourselves out of work!
Thankfully that passed for both of us as we found new jobs.  I love the earrings I have highlighted here from Kim’s store.  All of them are light, feminine, almost airy, as if they would dangle freely even without ear wires, just buoyed on a slight breeze.  I leave you with one last pair of earrings—a pair Kim calls Sweet Tweet!
