My name is Kim. When I was 9, my mother died mysteriously and it changed the course of my life.
My father loved me with all his heart, but he was older than my mother and it was difficult for him to fill in the void left by her passing. I did not understand his silence and restrictions against the feminine expression and modern times. There was a distance between us… I was overwhelmed by grief. I didn’t feel like doing anything other than rocking myself to sleep while watching the rain fall. My grades dropped. I felt empty, repressed, alone and ugly.
It was at that time that the magic touch of my grandmother changed everything. One day, she offered me a gift, a small box containing equipment to make jewelry. Life smiled at me once again! By working with pearls and crystals the little girl inside me found her spark and the momentum she needed to become a woman.
Outfitted and equipped, I travelled the lands of Morocco, the United States and Canada. My creations were showcased in many shops so I decided to perfect my art by taking a course with renowned jeweler Josée Desjardins.
Today mother of lovely kids, I have also found true love in my partner Vincent. We are parents of five! Vincent is a talented visual artist and digital sculptor. Trained as a jeweler, he works with me on the design and production of our silver & pewter jewelry. In addition, he is working on a future collection of precious metals using digital sculpting.
And hence the story of… Sid Kassidy. A small business but also, a family who wants to share with you the gift my grandmother gave me: light a spark that will make you glimmer like a star by wearing magnificent jewels signed Sid Kassidy. Open your jewelry box, embellish your future!
