Kim Allwright – Wilde Works – Contemporary Jewellery

Kim Allwright – Wilde Works – Contemporary Jewellery

Kim originally studied languages and worked abroad as a translator for many years. After returning to England she was able to revisit her creative interests and now works as a designer/maker, selling her pieces under the name Wilde Works.

Drawing inspiration from social and global issues, she translates these into minimalist pieces of contemporary jewellery that convey messages about peace, equality and the environment. She sees jewellery as a form of discovery and self-expression, enabling the wearer to explore and identify with the story behind her pieces and so express something about themselves.

Kim works mainly in silver and resin, occasionally incorporating gemstones and techniques such as pressure forming and rolling. With carefully-chosen pallets and hand-mixed pigments she adds interest to her pieces, using colour to set a mood or help convey messages.

Her collection to date includes kinetic rings, and two minimalist Sterling silver and resin ranges called First Explorationand Snapshot2016.

An image of her kinetic rings was used by resin expert Clare John in her book Resin Jewellery and she was recently approached to showcase her work at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park.

Kim is also an active member of Alloy Hereford Jewellers Group.
