About

I'm so glad you found me on Etsy, the place where I represent my own work for sale online. In my shop I list a lot of the wonderful wire jewelry that I have been making, refining, and designing for 15 years now. Over the years my work has developed from simple, easy to wear designs to larger wow! pieces... all styles are available in my shop or you can contact me directly if you don't see what you are looking for... whether a piece you've seen in person at a show or a custom piece that we can develop together.

I am a one-woman shop, so you can be assured that all pieces meet my standards for workmanship and design. As an artist I represent my own work at art fairs and trunk shows around the country. My jewelry is also carried at 60 galleries and museum shops nation-wide. You can find specific details on my website at http://www.kathyfrey.com…

One of my passions as an artist is to push myself to create new designs and shapes from wire. Wire has so much potential as a raw material... I love how every person who works with wire creates something different. My work has evolved to be very airy, feminine, and elegant, yet I love that it's all created from an industrial medium. My favorite description of my own work is "industrial elegance." In 2007 I wrote the book "Elegant Wire Jewelry," also available for purchase in my Etsy shop, so you can also discover the joys (and sometimes frustrations) of working with wire, or give the book to a crafting friend.

In 2009 I moved to a small artist community in Northern California so that when I'm not working in my home studio, I have a bevy of adventures in nature right outside my door. My favorite activities here are running, hiking, rock climbing, snowboarding, and disc golfing, and you can also find me dancing and cooking... two things that give me such pleasure!
