Artist Bio

“They say if you wander far enough, you will find yourself. If we listen closely, footsteps of those who came before us can inform our paths. Honor your spark and reconnect to the wonder and curiosity of your own journey.”

As a kid, Heidi Kingman earned the nickname “George” — as in Curious George. She was constantly asking questions. She favored hanging out with the adults and listening to stories of family lore and travels, cultures explored and art witnessed.

Later Heidi’s college education echoed her early interests and curiosity. She studied art and art history, dance, world religion and philosophy, science and medicine, and eventually law. While working in clinical medicine for a decade, she continued taking courses — trying to find her way. Today Heidi is an attorney by trade, but still an artist by passion. 

When Heidi was introduced to the world of jewelry design, she fell in love with the color, texture, and mineral curiosities of gemstones. She immersed herself in books, workshops and industry forums. Encouraged by hugely talented mentors, she delved into goldsmithing and found herself drawn to the hand-fabricated traditions that stretch back across ages of art and culture to the earliest roots of human creativity. She strives to bring that ancient spark forward and breathe it into her fresh contemporary designs.
