Kim Nikolaev constructs jewelry that unravels the architecture and essential mysteries of botanical elements. In her Atelier, Nikolaev, both a sculptor and jewelry designer, brings to life the elegance and luxury of the natural world by fabricating or casting each piece of jewelry by hand. Because her artisanal creations are informed by what she finds and is inspired by during mountainous hikes, she uses only sterling and fine silver, karat gold, bronze, and gems including black diamond to demonstrate the majesty she sees in an agave bloom and a seed pod.
Her personal brand was re-imagined to capture the true essence of her work, what inspires her and how she wants to be perceived by the world: as a master craftsman of fine art that balances scientific with artistic, masculine with feminine, intelligence with humility and elegance with grit.
