Kimberly Walters, owner of K. Walters at the Sign of the Gray Horse, creates reproduction and historically inspired jewelry for living history portrayals. A living historian and re-enactor, she met her first horse, Southern Belle—the original gray horse— at her first re-enactment in 2008 at The Market at Washingtonburg in Pennsylvania.
Walters portrays various characters at historic homes and other venues, including the William Paca House and Gardens in Historic Annapolis, Maryland. She is also a master hearth cook and author of A Book of Cookery, by a Lady. She uses authentic receipts when cooking over an open hearth as well as in a camp setting with re-enacting units.
Walters belongs to military units that are part of the British Brigade and to Continental Line re-enactment organizations. She is also a member of the Guild of Artisans, a unit in the Burning of the Valleys Military Association, and the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution.
But first and foremost, Walters is a proud horse mom who cares for a retired Colonial Williamsburg horse and four other rescues. All of her jewelry sales go to offset the costs of her horses.
