Kimberley graduated from Middlesex University in 2014 with a degree in Jewellery and Accessories design. She then went on to work in a bespoke jewellers for 2 years, working alongside and learning from the head jewellers. Silver Sorbet was established around this time, starting as a hobby selling at markets but has turned into a labour of love focusing more on selling online and through galleries and shops.
Kimberley has her own workshop at home, in Essex. This is where all of her designs take shape, the metal is cut, filed, hammered, sculpted and polished. Kimberley has her own maker’s hallmark which is applied to the precious metal at the London assay office, this is a recognised mark worldwide. The designs then return to her workshop where they are given a final clean, polish and are photographed ready for the customer.
Silver smithing, metal work, Jewellery and accessories allows her to express her passions of creativity, adornment and self-expression. Kimberley enjoys designing items that have clean, statement lines, simplistic to be worn everyday or layered up together to create a more bold look. All items can have a personal touch added, for each wearer to relate to, reminise of a happy place, time or memory.
