My name is Kim and I am owner, designer and creator at Wild Rain Designs. I am an artisan jewelry designer & self-taught metalsmith from Oregon, living in Springfield. I have been a lover of jewelry ever since I can remember. My first gemstone jewelry purchase was a beautiful vintage turquoise and silver ring found in an antique store when I was about 15. I have played around with stones and metals on and off my whole life. I am also passionate about the environment we live in so try and incorporate recylced materials into as much as my designs and packaging as possible. I use ethically sourced gemstones, cabochons, rough stones and some natural elements I might find along the way. I love using stones in my pieces.....to me there is nothing more beautiful than things made by nature.
