Finder's Keepers is a woman owned studio. Kimberly Rowan is known as a pioneer in the piercing industry.
Kimberly started her career as a studio owner and piercer in 1997 in Hampton Roads Virginia. At the time, to be a piercer you had to invent your own technique and create your own way, since the piercing industry was not devleoped and there was no training or anyone who knew much about the skills needed for this brand new industry. It was a time of invention for anyone who dared to be a visionary and help create what today is known as the body piercing industry. Information was shared through small mom and pop shops that were producing what we now call basic steel body jewelry out of their basements. Kimberly studied wound care and jewelry metals, as well as she worked hands on with clients to help with problematic piercings to develop techniques and skills as a piercer in the formative years. She then taught others to pierce and has been apprenticing piercers ever since. Currently she works worldwide training piercers in their studios and helping to set up piercing in tattoo studios. Kimberly also does training and speaking engagements at events nationwide. She still maintains some of her first clients in Hampton Roads. As the industry grew and the jewelry market exploded in the early 2000's Finder's Keepers kept pace with the new body jewelry trends. Handcrafting custom pieces of body jewelry for Finder's Keepers customers evolved into Kimberly becoming a designer of body jewelry. Kimberly started her own retail and wholesale jewelry company that is well known today, sold worldwide and exclusively in her studios: International Body Jewelry.
