BE LIGHT

Elle (Canada) - - Fashion & Style -

While Kim Smi­ley’s em­bel­lished bracelets and ear­rings make a big state­ment, they won’t weigh you down. The frame­work looks like in­tri­cate metal but, in fact, is hand­made Ja­panese lace. Smi­ley sources ma­te­ri­als for her Sap­phô line from around the globe (Ja­pan, Mex­ico, Is­rael) but pro­duces all her pieces in a Toronto work­shop where she em­ploys marginal­ized women and teaches them the skills re­quired to bring her cre­ations to life.
