Kim Eric Lilot did not learn jewelry making in school, but trained as a metalsmith’s apprentice. He taught jewelry and sculpture and owned a gallery before launching his own custom metal design business in 1999. As an expert goldsmith and certified gemologist, Lilot uses a wide variety of materials, including red and green golds, tourmaline, lapis lazuli, and opals. He is inspired by nature and dreams, as well as life’s contrasts, including darkness and light, joy and sorrow, and life and death.
