Hello! My name is Kim.
I was born and raised in a small farming community, Armstrong, British Columbia, Canada.
After living in a few different places, my heart brought me back to Armstrong where I met my husband back in 2004.
A marriage, a move to Fort St. John, BC, two kids (Memphis & Declan), and everything in between, here we are, still up North.
I started Sand and Stone in 2011, while I was pregnant with my son and had my two year old running around like toddlers do. Never could I imagine, 6yrs later I am where I am.
Thousands of cuffs sold, a trip to the Oscars Gifting Suite in LA in 2017, followed up by being in three, count them THREE, issues of LA Fashion Magazine. I was chosen as a Summer 2017 Must Have as well as the Editors pick and Fall 2017 must have. Finishing off with a two page spread in their Christmas issue.
Never in my dreams could I have imagined something I still create in my basement in this little northern town would have made it all the way to LA and published to millions of readers.
The stories I have been told, they’re a piece of me.
The births, the deaths, the happy and all the sad, they are a now part of my life, because I got to create something for your life.
I thank you for trusting me with your most important pieces and memories.
Being a work at home mom isn’t easy, but I feel like this is what I was meant to do. To create beautiful pieces for you to wear. To learn how to balance working from home, running an entire company and trying to still balance life, kids, friends and lets be serious, keeping the house clean! Some days are hard. Some days are easier. Even if there wasn’t an easy day, I will still continue on and persevere, just to make sure you had a piece of your life on your wrist as a reminder of whatever is important to you.
Prayers happen in my little workshop for many of you, ones you’ll never know or hear, but somehow hopefully they find you in some way.
Be grateful today.
Love always, Kim
