About

The natural world reimagined...

An artist and designer originally from Portland, Oregon, Katie is inspired by the year-round color of the Bay Area environs and has enjoyed the process of allowing this muse to inform her distinct style of jewelry. She creates tangible representations of the beautiful and the visceral that are both regional and universal. Feathers, bones, snakeskin, insects and other objects are chosen for their textures, shape, and colors as much as for the roles they play in the natural world. Using glass and metal, Katie creates unique reliquary jewelry that provides a wearable snapshot of the vitality and endurance of these natural elements

Additional policies and FAQs
- I source insects from butterfly farms, working with licensed, independent businesses around the world to conserve native insects and their habitats.

- The skulls and jawbones come from owl pellets found in the Pacific Northwest.

- Feathers are naturally molted and collected.

- Snakeskin is naturally shed. Some snakes shed up to 12 times a year.

- The bees I use are all found on my daily walks, naturally deceased.

- I use the Tiffany Method of stained glass soldering. The metal is a nickel-free blend of silver and tin that melts at a lower temperature, allowing me to encase natural objects that are sensitive to heat.

- All of the earring findings, ring, and bracelet metal is oxidized sterling silver. The chain and findings are nickel-free. Please remove all jewelry prior to bathing, washing hands, etc.

- All items are handcrafted by me in my Oakland studio.

- Custom items may be considered. Please convo me if interested.
