    A snip-it of my jewelry journey

    My name is Katie 👋 and I started Star Native in 2012. Before that I dabbled around in jewelry design under the name My Own Little Universe. That feels like eons ago! My first metalsmithing class was in the year 2000 and I fell in love but I didn't take another class until 2007. At that point, I was working as a graphic designer and learning jewelry on the side. I continued to work on my skill on the side of my graphic design career for years! Finally at the end of December of 2019, I went full time in my jewelry career. It's really only been about 3.5 months. I was scared!! Thankfully it's been working out and I sincerely thank all of you for being here with me on my journey. Whether you just found me or have been here since the beginning. Thank you SO much!! You are why I am here!!!

    Hello! Welcome to Star Native :)

    All my items are made by hand by me. Most pieces start out with a sheet of sterling silver that is sawed with a hand saw and then filed and smoothed out. I use a gas torch to melt silver to create decorative details and solder onto the piece. All silver you see is sterling silver. Other metals I use occasionally are brass and copper. I use a lot of crystals and other natural stones and minerals from the earth.
