MEET YOUR DESIGNER
Designer, Kelly Cimber founded Cimber designs in 2008, combining her interest in natural earth elements, unique rocks, and gem stones with her keen sense of high-fashion and beautiful things.
A lifelong artist, designer Kelly Cimber first discovered her love for handcrafting jewelry while growing up in Connecticut. Her early studies in metal smithing provided the background she needed to win the silver key award for a metal sculpture at the Connecticut state art fair.
Multifaceted, Cimber earned a bachelor of science in management and leadership from the U.S. coast guard academy and an associates of residential planning from the art institute of Pittsburgh. A lieutenant in the coast guard, Cimber lives in Miami Beach, Florida and in between coordinating search and rescue and law enforcement cases, she is also living her dream of pursuing a lifelong career in the arts. Cimber (sim-bur) designs in jewelry was created with the trendy high fashion woman in mind. Discouraged by the ‘cheap’ and tarnishing quality of costume jewelry, the designer, Kelly Cimber, was inspired to produce bold fashion-forward statement jewelry made of high quality materials, yet at affordable prices.
Each piece is handcrafted using 14kt gold filled or sterling silver precious metals, as well as semi-precious stones that are hand selected for their distinctive features and qualities. Influenced by her earlier years of collecting rocks, Cimber designs many of her pieces using stones in their natural raw form. The collections of Cimber are ever changing with the current trends in fashion, but remain fresh, sophisticated, glamorous, and contemporary. Cimber designs in jewelry range from made-to-order pieces to one of a kind or limited editions, custom requests can also be made. Cimber’s most defined signature pieces are her brilliant one of kind necklaces with large semi-precious stones in their natural, genuine state or colorful agate slices.
