Part art, part human architecture, artist and designer Kim Rittberg’s precious and semi precious gold and silver works were created to call attention to the human form and show it off to best advantage, she says. Rittberg started k ritt jewelry after a solo trip to ten countries and a year long stay in the bohemian Bondi Beach area outside Sydney, Australia. The palettes and textures of Southeast Asia, the modern art and architecture of Europe and the topographies of Australia were formative influences. Trained in the fine arts and art history at the University of Pennsylvania, Rittberg incorporates theories such as positive and negative space, composition and asymmetry. She regards the human form as a canvas and believes that jewelry can, and should be, art.
