Sone is hands in Korean. Catherine Kim creates handmade jewelry art conceptualized from travels and experiences. Following traditional art making, she observes and records ordinary objects. Through making they become removed from their original purpose and ambiguous to create a new point of view. The style is minimal, playful, versatile and modern.
Catherine Kim was born in Seoul, Korea and raised in Los Angeles, CA. After graduating from UCLA Department of Art and Architecture she worked as a jewelry designer before attending the Vermont Studio Center art residency. She lived in the Caribbean island of Trinidad and Tobago for 9 years. Those 9 years were well spent making art and jewelry and traveling the region and throughout Europe. Her adventure continues in the mountains of Forest Falls, CA where she makes her jewelry art under Sone.
Currently, the main component of the jewelry objects are made with Art Clay. Art Clay Silver is pure silver powder combined with non-toxic binders and water. When fired, the binders burn away, leaving pure, 99.9% silver. The silver is sourced from reclaimed/recycled silver.

The main component of Sone jewelry is 99.9% pure silver. Silver will tarnish naturally so it is a good idea to keep items in an air tight bag/box such as a jewelry box. All Sone items come in a jewelry box with an anti-tarnish tab. Anti-tarnish tabs are great and affordable for keeping your silver tarnish-free!
