ABOUT ME

Kim Ryan - Kian Designs Handmade Jewellery UK

Hi, I’m Kim Ryan and I live in Preston, Lancashire in the UK, with my husband, 3 sons and Tilly my gorgeous cockapoo! 

I’ve always had a creative side, but this took a back seat to my legal career until 2009 when whilst on maternity leave I began making jewellery and found my new passion and I haven’t looked back since. 

I am predominantly self-taught, undertaking a short silver-smithing course in 2016 to enhance my skill set allowing me to expand my jewellery designs and feed my constant need to challenge myself. 

Each piece is lovely crafted by hand, the creative process being as important to me as the gorgeous end result. I love working with various metals, including Sterling Silver, 14ct Gold & Rose Gold Filled combined with Gemstones, Crystals and Pearls.  

Inspired by clean lines, shape and texture, my aim is to create contemporary stylish jewellery perfect for any occasion. 

Thank you for taking the time to browse my website. I hope you see something that you like and you get as much pleasure from wearing the items as I do from creating them.

Happy shopping! 

Kim x
