Katey McCarthy's Profile

About

Chickatey comes from "chickadee," the state bird of Maine, where I was born and raised. It also happens to be an amalgam of my name and the word chic!

I've migrated to New York City and work in the nonprofit sector, but jewelry making has been a lifelong passion of mine. I began making jewelry as a child, worked at a beading store throughout highschool (where I learned many techniques), and started designing and making jewelry again more frequently since I graduated from college. A Cancer and a huge Audrey Hepburn fan, I have an affinity to pearls.

I hope you enjoy chickatey as much as I do!
