Kate runs her independent jewellery design studio from her home in Northamptonshire. She studied illustration and brings her love of drawing into her jewellery. Each piece is originally drawn by Kate, and she works to retain the hand drawn aesthetic through the precise laser cutting process.

The result of experimentation with drawing surfaces at university lead Kate to create playful, wearable illustrations. From making wooden brooches for friends inspired by their favourite tv shows, she now works on the business full time and stocks her work in lovely independent shops around the world. Her design ethos is to create playful, conversation-starting jewellery made from ethically sourced materials.

Materials and manufacturing: Each piece is made from responsibly sourced plywood and British manufactured jewellery findings. She currently outsources her laser cutting to a London-based studio, but each piece is finished, painted and assembled by Kate.

Things Kate likes; her labradoodle Barney, growing vegetables, running long distances, plants, camping, cheese, sleeping, cycling, gin & lemonade, museums.

If you have an idea or a commission in mind, Kate would be delighted to hear from you. She can create custom jewellery designs, paint you a picture, or draw a portrait of your face.
