About Sugar Sand Silver

About the Artist

Kim Schmeits learned the art of metal-smithing while earning her degrees in fine arts. She received her post-grad in paintings conservation in Antwerp, Belgium and has lived and worked in Europe, Mexico City, and the U.S., always gathering artistic inspiration from her travels along the way.

 When she returned to the U.S. and Sarasota several years ago, Kim decided to reach back to her roots in silver-smithing. Realizing how much she loved working with fine metals and gemstones, she created Sugar Sand Silver.  Working with sterling silver, natural stones, and pearls, each of Kim’s pieces is hand-crafted in her Sarasota studio. She now also offers several gold-filled styles.

"Brick and Mortar"

Sugar Sand Silver

Why Sugar Sand Silver? When she decided to make her passion into a business, Kim wanted customers to know where their jewelry came from: Sugar Sand is a nod to the beautiful white beaches of Sarasota where she lives & has her studio.


Kim takes great pride in the quality of materials she uses and her skills in creating something beautiful for her customers to wear and cherish. She uses only high quality gold-filled and .925 sterling silver with no nickel and handpicks the stones and other materials to offer you quality, artisan made jewelry at affordable prices.
