About the Designer

Tricia Kim ~ I came to Bali with one suitcase in 1997 to work as head designer for iconic jewelry brand John Hardy.  Today I live and work in Pererenan where I have built a lovely home that I share with my 12 year old son, 2 dogs and 1 cat.

I have always been fascinated with drawing and shiny objects and piano since an early age. This lead to studying fine arts in top art schools in NYC, Paris and California, where I started hand making jewelry.  A stint with high end goldsmith Jenny Lessard in NYC and a gold company in midtown, lead me to experiment with ancient techniques of granulation, chain making, and gemstone setting.

My brand ‘Nagicia’, a portmanteau of Naga (meaning dragon and the year I was born into) and Tricia came to life whilst trekking in Nepal.

After traveling throughout SE Asia in 2000, I landed back in Bali and started my brand.  I always wondered how I could give back to the communities in Bali.  This came to fruition when the Canggu chapter of Rotary began.  As a charter member and past president, I have been able to help in more ways than I thought possible.  Through education programs and workshops and working alongside other like minded individuals, we have been able to better lives of many people through water tanks, beach clean ups, etc.  I support Bye Bye Plastic Bags, ROLE foundation, Sole Men.

This year, I am starting up a circular social program, to empower local women by starting a workshop teaching specialized skills.  These women will be able to support themselves and their families with this project.  I dream this capsule project will be a format to be copied around other villages in Bali and elsewhere.

I am happy that I can utilize my jewelry design skills to better peoples lives.  This is the best reward any designer can wish for.

Our Artisans

Since prehistoric times, Southeast Asians, including the Indonesians, have been acquainted with jewelry and jewelry-making techniques. Hinduism began to touch Indonesia some 2,000 years ago, bringing with it not only a new religion but also new cultural concepts. We have visual evidence of the impact this had on the islanders in the form of temples and statuary. The bodies of many statues display a variety of ornate jewelry. One of these is the tali kasta, a rope worn to betoken caste and also used as a charm with curative powers. Other items adorning the personages of royalty and the gods include crowns, necklaces, finger-and toe-arm circlets, some of which can still be seen in Javanese dance costume today. NAGICIA prides itself in working with Artisans that keeps alive the ancient techniques passed down from generation to generation. Thriving on the mutual creative collaborations and supporting local families.
