Surprisingly, the pieces are not heavy for what they look like. The ''red boxes'' were constructed with steel to minimize the wait and they are empty inside so they seem thick and heavy but they are not.
The back texture is created with a new technique that I have developed in the past months mixing fine concrete and a specific powder coat.
Kim Paquet Joailliere is a contemporary jeweler and an educational jewellery business owner based in Quebec. Kim has worked in social intervention for a few years and, she started her journey as a jeweler in 2014 at Ecole de Joaillerie de Montreal. She pursued her studies at Nova Scotia College of Art and Design and graduated in 2020 with a Bachelor in Fine Arts majoring in Jewelry Design and Metalsmithing. After her graduation, she completed a one-year artist residency at Harbourfront Centre in Toronto. Being away from home during this global pandemic, she realized how deep inside she wanted to be home with her close ones. Since then, she installed her own jewellery studio and she is focussing her artistic practice in an educational manner. Her jewellery studio, located in her hometown, welcomed anybody who has an interest in creating and expressing themselves towards metal and wearable ornaments. She also travels with her toolbox to community centers where she can reach people who normally don't have access to these experiences. Kim, as a creator, is fascinated by the concept of individuality and the idea that all humans are unique and in constant progress through challenges, comfort, fear, or happiness. She truly believes that every action we take is part of our larger own narrative and no matter what, only we can tell our story in its truest form. Kim sees her jewelry as an opportunity to help people to express their individuality and find satisfaction in their authenticity. She knows that her love for creating wearable pieces is also a way to connect with others and learn about their own narrative.
