“We commune with and are inspired by nature and the universe. As observers, we are fascinated by its harmony and the ever-changing interactions of the elements within. Most often, we work with different kinds of metals to reflect its likeness in color and form. By involving artistic imagination to this powerful vitality, we are able to create ‘new life’ within our work.”On meeting at Kookmin University in Seoul, South Korea, Tai & Tiara Kim united in their passion for craft. Today, they collaborate from their studio in New Jersey to compose wearable creations of physical grace and ethereal soul.
Excitedly, the artists are stirred by dual inspirations: Tai is entranced by the interconnectedness of nature while Tiara is enamored by the vast complexion of our universe. Unfolding these perspectives to jewelry’s intimate terrain, they study the strengths and simplicities of metal, creating work akin to humanity at its deepest core. Carefully hammered surfaces of sterling silver coalesce amongst a fused melody of platinum and gold while delicate diamonds are set atop its lustrous composition. Utilizing a muse of fastidious and visceral spirit, the makers create radiant pieces of art, contending to divine beauty in palpable delectation.
