As a fine jewelry designer, Kimberly McDonald has a healthy obsession with rocks.
Before launching her line in 2006, she cultivated her eye as a curator for private estate collectors, but her fascination with geodes and agate — her specialty — can be traced to a far less glamorous place: her stepfather’s driveway in Wisconsin. “In the Great Lakes, a huge percentage of gravel was agate,” said McDonald, who is based in New York. “It was like a hunt, so as a kid I would eat raspberries off the bush and pick agate out of the driveway.”
