Kimi Designs uses many Metals in the creation of their Jewellery.
Some chemical elements are called metals. They are the majority of elements in the periodic table. These elements usually have the following properties:
- They can conduct electricity and heat.
- They can be formed easily.
- They have a shiny appearance.
- They have a high melting point.
- Most metals are solid at room temperature, but this does not have to be the case. Mercury is liquid. Alloys are mixtures, where at least one part of the mixture is a metal. Examples of metals are aluminium, copper, iron, tin, gold, lead, silver, titanium, uranium, and zinc.
- Well-known alloys include bronze and steel.
The study of metals is called metallurgy.
Kimi Designs incorporates many gems stones and crystals into their wearable art.
A gemstone (gem, stone or semi-precious stone) is a piece of mineral crystal which, in cut and polished form, is used to make jewelry. However, certain rocks (such as lapis lazuli and opal) and occasionally organic materials that are not minerals (such as amber, jet, and pearl) are also used for our jewelry. Most gemstones are hard, but some soft minerals are used in jewelry because of their luster or other physical properties that have aesthetic value.
Gemstones and crystals have healing properties that help to balance the body, mind, and spirit. Healing crystals and gemstones have been used for thousands of years by ancient civilizations; the Egyptians, Aztecs, and others incorporated them into jewelry, cosmetics, decorative statues, amulets, and much more – a testament to their powerful ability to release mental, physical, and spiritual blockages.
Kimi Designs incorporates many symbols into many jewellery pieces, allowing you to expand your collection of wearable art with healing or powerful meaning.
They may be a Land, Water, or Air Animal, bur they may be an Insects, a Reptile or an Amphibian. They may be a tree, a plant, or an element.
Signs and symbols cultivate their meanings according to culture, context, passage of time, and mass societal opinion.
Whether they come from parts of nature like trees, plants, spirit animals or crystals and stones, they all are highly important, their most powerful meanings from our own personal perspective.
Animal totems play huge roles in our lives. They aid in self-discovery and capture our imagination, giving us incredible avenues of self-expression and awareness.
