Kim Schmeits learned the art of metal-smithing while earning her degrees in fine arts. She received her post-grad in paintings conservation in Antwerp, Belgium and has lived and worked in Europe, Mexico City, and the U.S., always gathering artistic inspiration from her travels along the way.
Upon returning to the U.S. and Sarasota four years ago, Kim decided to reach back to her roots in silver-smithing. Realizing how much she loved working with fine metals and gemstones, she created Sugar Sand Silver.
Working exclusively with sterling silver, natural stones, pearls, and sea-glass, each of Kim’s pieces is hand-crafted in her Sarasota studio where she creates casual yet elegant pieces that flow easily from daytime to evening wear.
