Golden Forest is a one woman business. My name is Kim Weijs and I am the designer, maker, photographer and everything else behind this business. When I moved to Ireland to start a new life with my Irish partner I also wanted to break free from the rat race and live a free life and do work I love.
I was always passionate about nature and flowers but I was swept of my feet by Ireland's glorious coastlines, mountains and fairytale-like old oak forests. This is where I belong! Bursting with inspiration and renewed energy the idea for the business was born in spring of 2016 and has now grown to a professional online boutique.
I'd like to take you along on my journey exploring the natural world from up close where the diversity in colours, shapes, structures and transformations is infinite. With Golden Forest jewellery and gifts I am playing with combinations and forms that hopefully encourages you to look more carefully to the beauty around us and make you see things in a different perspective.
All jewellery and gifts are handmade in Cork city using handpicked wildflowers, plants and other found natural treasures from all over Ireland but mainly from Cork. Also I solely use eco-friendly non toxic resin. I chose to work with resin because of its enormous amounts of possibilities and great features. It's very durable, lightweight, crystal clear and most of all perfect for preserving natural material.
