About

How I got here...

There is a beautiful bead shop in my home town. Growing up, I would spend hours in there selecting beads for different ideas. Necklaces, earrings, bracelets and more- the possibilities were endless. All things arty and creative was my passion, and making jewellery was a big part of that. I thought I'd spend my life doing it, forging a career in something creative.

Life had other ideas though. Somehow I ended up with an English degree and a job as a Secondary School English teacher, being creative with words instead of beads and wires. But life also found a way to bring making jewellery back into the picture eventually. At university I had so much jewellery that my flatmates always came to me to accessorise their outfits! I started to get frustrated that I couldn't find the styles I envisioned, and then I remembered how I used to make things myself.

I started playing around with ideas, and then soon after a friend asked me to design wedding jewellery for her bridal party. Getting married is such a big day, it was a privilege to do so, and as each bridesmaid had a different dress that suited their style and personality, it was a fantastic challenge that I really enjoyed. There were some lovely comments made by those at the wedding, and people suggested I could make a business out of it. I was so proud of the final products, and enjoyed the process so much that I started to experiment again.

So, lots of designs later, and a few local craft fairs, and Kate Cave Creations was born. Through a social media presence and representations at local events, the business grew and soon built up a strong local client base. Then I joined Etsy to share my designs with more people and see just how far I can go!

I love using a variety of components to make my products, from glass beads to freshwater pearls, seed beads and various charms. I'm inspired by nature, fun and fairytales, and make jewellery that suits both the occasion and the ordinary day. And I still use beads from the shop in my home town to create some of my designs, ensuring that my creations really reflect my passions and experiences.

I love running KCC, and hope you enjoy my creations too!
