*Note for article:

When I first chanced upon Isabella Kim her designs were striking to begin with, but as I watched her work develop over the past four, five years she honed her skills in jewelry making. Her craftsmanship was always solid to begin with, but as style and tastes continue to grow she really created the perfect line for vintage lovers.

Being able to speak with her about her lace bracelets and necklaces was an interesting peek into her life as an artist before she became a jewelry designer. I eagerly await to see how she continues to build her collection with each season.

An excerpt from the article which can also be read here

When Isabella Kim, inspired by both traditional ceramics and modern glamour, experimented with gold glazing pottery in college, her professor at the time was not pleased. But ultimately, this out-of-the-box thinking led Kim into the world of accessories, culminating in Etoile Jewelry, a line of exquisite lace-like jewelry. As foreshadowed by her education abroad, Kim’s approach to jewelry doesn’t rely on following what is popular, but rather her own deep regard for history. “I’m fascinated by Art Nouveau style and art from the Renaissance period. I collect pictures of René Lalique’s jewelry and William Morris’ wallpaper and Alphonse Mucha’s illustrations — clothing decorated with embroidery, lace, ribbons and jewels. It seems that classical antique Renaissance art fits my taste.”
