Xmas pressie for my sister, she completely adored it! Excellent quality, shipping took about a month to get to Perth WA (probably 'cause of our customs).

The earrings were delivered in one day and they were beautiful! Katie customized the earrings because I have a metal allergy. She was extremely responsive and helpful. I can't wait to order more of her products. Thanks Katie!

Katie was wonderful. She worked with me to create the perfect necklaces for my bridesmaids and communicated with me every step of the way. She also gave me a good deal and included a surprise set of earrings with my items. I had a great experience and the end products are lovely. I would highly recommend. Thanks again!

It all began at age 18 months!

katie's love of jewelry began at the age of 18 months in connecticut when she started wearing a plastic pearl necklace everywhere--pajama story time, play dates, etc. appropriately, her mother recalls that her second sentence was "I have pearls".

during a trip to barcelona, spain, as an undergraduate at cornell university, katie stumbled upon a gemstone store and the rows of colorful gemstones changed her life. she purchased several strands and began making necklaces for herself. after receiving countless compliments on her pieces, katie decided to start selling her handmade designs.

katie's company, yellow socks llc, was incorporated in the fall of 2007. katie named the company after her late grandfather's signature sock color. her designs began selling in fairfield county, ct, boutiques and two years later, katie left her job at a new york city law firm to pursue her passion for jewelry design full-time. in the summer of 2010, katie received a graduate gemology degree from the gemological institute of america. she now creates her designs in her manhattan studio.
