Cocoa & Honey: Small batch, handcrafted jewelry at Areté Float Tank & Personal Optimization Studio

  • Areté Float Tank & Personal Optimization Studio 203 East Carr Street Carrboro, NC, 27510 United States (map)

Kim Long is a recent transplant from Iowa, where she received a BFA in Metalsmithing at the University of Iowa. Cocoa & Honey are the names of her childhood horses; constant companions and evocative of a time when we, as children, made things with our hands for no other reason than we felt like it.

Using 14kt rose gold fill and natural gemstones, C&H is inspired by the simple, beautiful geometry of planted fields and the gentle, rolling hills of rural Iowa.
In 2006, Kim created Kim Sun Designs in Seattle, WA, a line of hand-tooled leather accessories using eco-friendly paints, stains and dyes. These belts, bracelets and keychains will also be available at Areté during the 2nd Friday ArtWalk.
