Metalworking classes taken out of sheer boredom turned into a rather drastic change in Kate’s life. And judging by the sales and growing popularity of her jewelry, it’s safe to say it was all for the better. A natural in the metal manipulating field, Kate creates gold, silver, and vermeil (a blend of the two) pieces that have a high-end look without being overbearing. The entire process is always done completely by hand, so no two pieces are ever the same. The work she ends with certainly speaks volumes for itself, but when worn, it lets your best attributes do the talking.
