Kimone Young - 84Gem
I was born in Jamaica and raised in Brooklyn, NY. I’m self-taught and most of my end results have been produced through trial and error. I worked side by side with two Brooklyn based small business jewelry designers while working on my own jewelry. This is where I gained the most knowledge and hands on experience which has brought 84Gem to what it is today.

Meet our Creator
Hi I'm Blair! I was born and raised in Los Angeles, and I'm a wife and mother of two. Over the past several years, I've come across so many creators that bring such unique color, creativity and innovation to their communities. We talk constantly about the importance of supporting our small businesses, and I wanted to play an active role in that mission.
