Kate is a designer and metalsmith.
With a family history in the jewellery trade, Kate grew up around engraving tools, ring sizers, and rolling mills. A subtle pulse was created and over time a fascination began with metallurgy and the ability to manipulate metal with heat and tools.
Worldwide travels fueled a deep appreciation for ancient metalsmithing techniques and craftmanship particularly through the American southwest, Mexico, Colombia and Egypt. Kate has found her inspirations come mostly from architectural forms and geometric play with a curiosity towards textures, lines and layers.
Every design begins with a simple desire to share ideas and explore the possibilities held within the art of transformation. Kate finds parallels between these creative processes and the journey of life, moving through womanhood and parenting – constantly open to reinvention and carried with grace.
All pieces are handmade by Kate using traditional metalsmithing and leather working techniques with the goal of creating high quality, unique and limited edition pieces.
