Kim Merritt is the owner and designer of Gritty Jewelry and Foster Merritt. She is firmly planted behind her work bench at Virago Gallery on most days. As she states, "This jewelry won’t make its damned self! So I take metal, add fire, drill bits, saws, solder, blood and sweat. My designs incorporate mixed metals, gemstones, and buckets of radness. I do remove all blood and sweat whenever appropriate."
Established in 2006.
"I love transforming raw materials into new, interesting things. I also incorporate old and broken scraps into some of my small batch designs. Running through the process of drawing to cutting, bending, sawing to finished product; this always pushes serotonin through my brain."
