I'm Kate, jewellery designer and illustrator. I am currently living in Tokyo, where I continue to run my shop and work as a freelance illustrator. However all orders are posted from the UK while I am away!
My design ethos is to create playful, conversation-starting jewellery made from ethically sourced materials.I studied illustration and bring my love of drawing into the jewellery. I draw each piece by hand, and work to retain the hand drawn aesthetic through the precise laser cutting process.
The result of experimentation with drawing surfaces at university lead me to create playful, wearable illustrations. From making wooden brooches for friends inspired by their favourite tv shows, I now work on the business full time and stock work in lovely independent shops around the world.
Materials and Manufacturing
I use responsibly sourced poplar plywood and British manufactured jewellery findings. I laser cut and etch all my designs before they are finished, painted and assembled by hand.
Things I like!
My black labradoodle Barney, growing vegetables, running long distances, anything to do with space, camping, Japanese food, sleeping, cycling, gin & lemonade, museum visits.
Commissions and Custom Designs
If you have an idea or a commission in mind, I would be delighted to hear from you. At the moment I am unable to take on custom jewellery commissions.
