I recently spotted a pair of earrings hanging from a friend’s ears and just had to know where she’d gotten them. I was so happy to hear that they were made by a local designer and were available here in Baltimore. The designer is Kohli Flick of K Flick Studio and she graciously agreed to talk with CBSBaltimore about her jewelry line.
CBSBaltimore: When was K Flick Studio founded?
Kohli Flick: K Flick Studio was founded in 2008 here in Baltimore, Md.
CBSBaltimore: What niche is KFS trying to fill?
KF: My customers are jeans and tee shirt women who like to use minimal but sophisticated jewelry to pull together their everyday look. They are also able to transition their pieces to more formal events like birthdays, weddings and an evening out.
CBSBaltimore: What inspires you to create?
KF: My friends and customers inspire me to create and keep me moving forward. I often get emails from customers telling me that my stock in certain stores is low and asking what I have that is new. I am always trying to give them someone new that they can combine with other pieces of KFS jewelry that they have. I really like having pieces that you can layer, mix and match and create new looks.
CBSBaltimore: How long does it take to make each piece?
KF: The length of time depends on the complexity of the piece. To be honest, I don’t time myself. I just enjoy the process of making things by hand.
CBSBaltimore: Do you accept custom design orders?
KF: I do take custom orders. In fact, I do most of my custom work for weddings. I love working with brides and being able to create something unique for them. It is always wonderful to hear stories about how much their bridal parties appreciated the jewelry and have worn it to subsequent events.
CBSBaltimore: You had a pair of earrings featured here that I’ve never seen – are they part of a new line?
KF: Yes! I’m always working with new materials.
CBSBaltimore: What are your pieces made of?
KF: The core of the jewelry line is created using 14k gold-filled chain, wire, and findings. I use semiprecious stones, bone, wood and glass beads. Every piece is made by hand and intentionally structured to highlight the materials features.
CBSBaltimore: Where are KFS products available?
KF: You can find my products at kflickstudio.com, Trohv (Baltimore and Washington, D.C.) and Terrain (outside of Philadelphia).
CBSBaltimore: Do you come out with items seasonally? Quarterly?
KF: I don’t really follow a timeline for new products. New items are added to the collection whenever I am feeling inspired. They don’t always make it up on the website but new items can usually be found at Trohv.
I had so much fun learning more about this local jewelry maker. Be sure to check her site often or stop by Trohv for the latest K Flick Studio designs.
