Kim Union- Communion By Joy    Kim has been sculpting jewelry for over 10 years. She has always loved art since I was a child. Her calling for jewelry design came when she worked at an art gallery and realized that she wanted to be the artist. After working in a gallery, she decided it was time to tap into her own artistic side. She loved the idea of being able to sculpt anything she wanted.  Kim’s inspiration comes from nature and the mystery behind the veil of life. This is a feeling she tries to capture with her designs. She loves ritual and symbolism, finding her inspiration communing with the spirit in nature, animals, and people. She loves to make jewelry that carries an energy of inner-strength and contains the power from the design or the stones I set into them. Kim keeps her creative fire going by connecting to people and their stories.

Gabe Saporta    Born in Uruguay and raised in New York City, Gabe Saporta was majoring in philosophy and political science at Rutgers University when he was discovered, and decided to pursue a career in music. Touring the world throughout his 20'2, he enjoyed multi-platinum success as the singer and creative force behind Cobra Starship.  In 2013 Saporta married fashion designer Erin Fetherston, and although he continued his career as an artist (releasing his biggest hit to date, "You Make Me Feel"), his true dream was to start a family. He thus began stepping out of the spotlight and into the business side of the music industry. At the beginning of 2016, Gabe moved to California (with Erin, of course), launched The Artist Group and welcomed a baby boy (the first of many, he hopes).
