I am Kai Hill and I am a metalsmith/art jeweler based in Durham, North Carolina. Making Jewelry is my passion, and my way of processing the world. The way we adorn ourselves is and always has been a very detailed portrait of who we are as individuals and how we fit into the larger fabric of our society. It is how we preen, protest, and pray. It can be sentimental, the mode of the love language of gift giving, or pure guiltless vanity. Gifting is my love language, and I get butterflies every time someone finds a piece of mine that speaks to them. I make jewelry for that feeling. I believe that we grow every time we give gifts to those we love, especially ourselves, and each object holds that intention within its seems.
