Kim Yubeta began designing more than 20 years ago. Kim’s luxurious style is born from her passion for incorporating intriguing elements from a variety of artists and cultures. She gathers interesting stones, gems, beads, charms and antique ivory to make pieces. Kim personally invests herself into each design to create, as she puts it, “a sense of wonder and excitement” that she hopes is shared by the wearer. For Kim the creation process isn’t work. It is play and she loves to make people smile when they gaze at her wondrous creations. Each piece is made one at a time and is an original piece of jewelry that is timeless and bold. She is continually inspired by both the beauty of the southwest, where she lives, and the treasures she finds throughout the world.
