Kate has never been a fan of being told what to do, especially when it comes to that age-old rule against mixing metals. The NYC native enjoys playing with the contrast of silver and gold, creating jewelry that proves some rules were meant to be broken. Kate’s interest in jewelry making began after admiring a pendant her grandma handed down to her. Realizing the emotional attachment associated with jewelry has helped Kate design unique pieces in the hope that they, too, will become heirlooms. But with designs this striking? It'll take more than a little coaxing for anyone to pass 'em along.
