Kateri Morton's Profile

About

I believe that jewelry tells a story. It can be a secret story, a reminder to yourself; it can be a story you tell to the world around you; it can be a costume or a talisman or a suit of armor. I love stories, and I love the challenge of translating an image or a narrative into a beautiful, wearable medium. I design and make jewelry using vintage and antique glass, hardware, metal and sterling silver.

My jewelry is sold in a number of brick and mortar shops around the United States, but selling online is my favorite venue. I love the connections that can blossom between the maker and the user of handmade things. So many of my own treasured things were made by people I later came to know as friends, and I love the stories that live in these things I see and use every day.

I'd just started making jewelry when I discovered vintage glass beads. They sparked my imagination in a whole new way; I fell in love, and have been obsessively hunting for unusual components ever since. I love using materials with provenance, and I put a lot of time and effort into finding unique vintage beads in excellent condition. I also think it's important to recycle materials when I can. All of my silver wire comes from a company that recycles sterling silver scrap, and all of my packaging contains post-consumer recycled material.

All of my jewelry is entirely sterling silver unless I've specifically noted otherwise (some pieces are made with copper, brass or gold filled components, and are all clearly labeled).

I try to make my photographs and descriptions as thorough as possible, but sometimes I forget something, so please feel free to convo me with questions or if you'd like to see additional pictures.

Welcome to Leaves of Glass, and thank you for supporting handmade.
