Who We Are
About the Designer
The Hiddenspace designer, Jay Kim, was born in South Korea. At the age of 15, he started a whole new journey in Thailand in order to further his education and to experience the vast opportunities of a foreign country. Captivated by the exotic-yet-delicate architecture of the land, he was eager to expand his knowledge. He moved to Canada, where he indulged deeply in his studies, understanding the process of planning, designing, and constructing art.
After moving to the U.S., he studied Show Production in Florida, taking on his interest in shaping beauty into a more concrete form. After falling head over heels for his wife, a professional jewelry designer, he was enlightened with the idea that jewelry can add a touch of class to human beauty.
His various experiences and efforts to construct art have been woven into his jewelry design in a unique way. This allows him to approach jewelry in diverse perspectives, which is reflected in his designs, combining the second and third dimensions to create spatial impressions. Hiddenspace is praised by local markets in Downtown Los Angeles for its intricate shaping of structure and space, truly making it a one-of-a-kind brand.

Perfect proportions and flawless layouts are the two main principles that Hiddenspace always applies to the works. Unlike traditional jewelry, we utilize metals to emphasize spatial impressions in unveiling, what we consider, “the hidden beauty.” Furthermore, our jewelries are profoundly inspired by art deco and built up with geometrical elements, exhibiting their androgynous characteristics. Hiddenspace is a representation of the independent, the confident, and the sophisticated women that we celebrate in this day and age.
Winston Churchill once said, “We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give.” Hiddenspace takes pride in living up to this quote and gives back 10% of its profits to local communities, supporting human values and holding ourselves accountable to social responsibilities.
Ethically & Environmentally Friendly
Hiddenspace is a strong advocate for conflict-free diamonds. All diamonds and gemstones are ethically sourced to help prevent violent trades. In addition, the metals (14K GOLD) we use from our casting companies are over 95% recycled. We are particularly attentive to environmental issues around the world and strive to operate each and every production in an eco-friendly manner.
