A passion for jewelry design crept up on this maker in high school and followed her down the path of higher education at Indiana University. After receiving her BFA in Art History and Metalsmithing, Katie decided to turn this passion into a career and offer up what she describes as “individual works of wearable art” to the masses. All of her portable pieces are hand-crafted and cast-free, meaning no jewelry molds to speak of. They exude a delicate, feminine vibe to compliment rather than underscore the wearer's natural beauty. And the best part? A portion of the yearly proceeds from Katie's line is donated to a local animal shelter.
