Kim Overstreet

(born Christiansburg, VA 1955)

Robin Kranitzky and Kim Overstreet run a company called Lost and Found. They design wearable art using found objects. The two became friends while working at a Richmond, Virginia, department store, and their shared interest in collecting led them to create jewelry together based on their "finds." Their brooches are collage-like dioramas that often incorporate their fascinations with fairy tales, science fiction, surrealism, and theater.
