About BEATRICE KIM
Beatrice Kim is a Massachusetts born artist. At the age of nineteen, she moved to New York in search of a different culture and education. She is inspired by nudes, grand gestures, mid-century art and design, peonies, and androgyny.
Graduating NYU’s Gallatin with concentrations in jewelry, photography, and “bricolage”—the construction of work by being resourceful with readily available objects---it would become bricolage’s unfamiliar 3-dimensional decoupage approach of deconstructing and reassigning the intention of materials that anchored and continues to inspire her work.
Choosing to immerse herself in a creative environment full of intensity and passion, Beatrice began her career in the fashion industry at Marc Jacobs. She began sourcing and developing textiles for Marc Jacobs, and continued on this path for Isaac Mizrahi and The Row. Her most formative years in fashion came while working at The Row where she helped build what was once a small company into a CFDA award-winning fashion house. She sourced and developed fabric, worked on product development for womenswear and handbags, and created jewelry for fashion shoots, contributing to the creative and exciting work environment that defines The Row. Taking inspiration from all that she learned while working in fashion, Beatrice began her own business in 2012 designing jewelry.
Beatrice Kim jewelry has been noted as a pioneer of the "handmade renaissance" in The Boston Globe's Style Issue, highlighted as a "one to watch" designer on NBC's Thread NY blog, featured in the Daily Candy, and The Boston Globe's style carrot blog.
All Beatrice Kim jewelry is handmade and one of a kind. She is available for custom orders.
In her free time, Beatrice loves to explore her love for food and art. She is an apprentice at a French restaurant, a budding fish monger, and a member of the Artisans Asylum located in Massachusetts. When not working on jewelry at her studio, she practices photography, weaving, and sculpture. Her photography has been published in “Impact: 50 Years of the CFDA,” and PDN’s “One Life Photos.” Artwork includes a commissioned flag for the New York Underground Museum located in the East Village.
