Inspiration comes from many places! heart_eyes This is my beautiful Lilac tree, and a happy Bumble Bee.
This is how all the jewellery starts out... I generally have a pattern in mind, but it is often rearranged once I sit down at the tablet and start arranging and mixing clays. There is only one standard colour in this palate, every other tone is custom!

About

Hi There!

Hi! I'm Kat.

I am a wife (to Steve), a mum, and a bit of a creative misfit. We live way out in the country, and I'd not have it any other way, the peace gives me time to think, to draw ideas in my mind, and then to spend hours researching how to make them become reality! Yep, inside this head is a jumbled and colourful kaleidoscope of designs and dreams.

Steve is the love of my life. We have been married since 2001, and have 2 sons, and dozens of animals. After having our children, I never returned to full time work, choosing instead to run my own business, which my hubby joined me in. For 6 years we were wedding photographers and had a wonderful time doing that! In 2015 we had to regretfully close our business due after I had a bad car accident and damaged my neck and back.

Just because my focus changed didnt mean my love of creative beauty did. I turned to sketching and then more recently the designs moved from paper, to polymer clay!

Earrings are my go to accessory, I often find myself going out without any make up, running my fingers through my hair instead of a brush, and wearing the "boring" old clothes I wore the last time I went out. But I always feel okay if I've got something pretty in my ears, and why not?!! Beauty has little to do with what we look like, but how we feel inside, and a fabulous pair of earrings always fits!

So here we go, this is how Kat Loves Steve was created! A love of creating things equalled a lot of fun and funky jewellery. I hope you love what I make, and add a little piece of colour into your life too!

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalised orders

No, sorry. At this stage I am no longer doing custom or personalised orders. If there is a colour-way that you would really love though, please drop me a line and I may be able to create something special with that in mind!

Sizing details

Approximate sizing of all items is in the listing, these may vary by a millimeter or so due to the handmade nature of the items. Most items show the jewellery displayed on a life sized drawing of a ladies head to give you a better image of how they will hang. Due to hygiene reasons, earrings are not displayed on a human model (unless they own them and have shared a photo).

Care instructions

A word from your jewellery.

"Hello! A few tips for you.

I like to sleep alone! Please put me in a box or bag by myself when you aren’t wearing me. I am happy on a jewellery holder too though.

I am delicate, if you treat me gently I will live for a long time, but if you drop or squeeze and bend me I will break.

The occasional sprinkle of a storm won’t worry me much, but please don’t put me in the shower or take me swimming.

If I get dirty, you can wipe me down with a soft cloth or a baby wipe to gently remove any dirt and refresh me.

Please don’t spray me with chemicals! Deodorants, perfumes, sunscreen, make-up, moisturisers, and other sprays will hurt me.

Most importantly; love me, adore me, have fun with me, and feel beautiful!"

Returns

Due to hygienic reasons, I do not accept returns. However if you have an issue with an item, please contact me! I will certainly do my best to fix any problems so you have a great experience shopping with me.

Earth "friendlier" packaging

We DON'T print a packaging slip for orders as they are emailed automatically by Etsy. If it's important that you have a paper copy, please request one prior to ordering, so we can advise of any time delays in shipping (we don't have easy access to a printer, so it could add a day or two to turn around time).

All orders are posted in a recyclable cardboard box with bubble wrap and tissue paper for protection. We can swap bubble wrap for newspaper on request.

Each item also comes with protective plastic sleeves which can also be removed on request too, but we recommend you ship with these to keep your items safe and sound, and then re-use them again to keep your earrings looking great after wear too.

Postage and Delivery

FREE POSTAGE | You get free standard postage on all orders over $79! YAY!

FLAT RATE POSTAGE | All delivery pricing is a flat rate. So you only pay for the first item, regardless of how many you order. We hope this helps make shopping a pleasure for you!

TRACKING | All parcels are sent through Australia Post, and a tracking number will be provided so that you can follow your items journey to your door.
