Kat was first drawn to her craft during a trip to London. She spotted a display of crown jewels worn by the royal families and was mesmerized. After that moment, she knew her life mission was clear: to create fine jewels, fit for a queen. In art school, she studied the art of jewelry making, working with different techniques and tools to perfect her offerings—learning the ins-and-outs of CAD (computer aided design) software to create 3D models, experimenting with different sand blasting techniques to achieve a soft and shimmery finish on her metal and studying up on gems to hand pick the best stones. The care put into creating each piece is evident in the finished product, all of Kat’s jewelry pretty enough for a princess.
