Kim Ripley is a 28 year old Michigan based artist who graduated in '05 with a BFA in fine arts and photography. Armed with an education and plenty of inspiration from her childhood, she began making and selling hand crafted jewelry on Etsy, under her high school nickname StoopidGerl. 2100+ satisfied customers later, StoopidGerl is a full fledged business, and we couldn't be happier about that.

Her designs are whimsical, colorful, highly original, and very well presented. If Hello Kitty and Jack Skellington had babies in the midst of a Dia de los Muertos parade (or candy store), they'd look something like this:

She sells prints of her original photos too, but that's another story for another time!
So which of these do you like best? Tough call, but I wanna say the teal glitter heart with the skull is my fave....
