A LITTLE ABOUT ME
Hello Sunshine, welcome to my site! My name is Kate. I am a Coatesville, Pennsylvania native, but I currently reside in Brenham, Texas with my husband and four perfect, rescue pups. I am most passionate about my family, friends, animals, travel, treasure hunting and jewelry, of course :)
I have always had a passion and admiration for jewelry and always envisioned designing my own pieces. Jewelry of all eras and regions has always fascinated me because of the never ending uniqueness and the versatility of each and every piece. Jewelry can make an entire statement, it can change someone’s entire outfit and mood, and it is my favorite form of self-expression.
Each piece that I create is made with love, positive energy, and light. I draw most of my inspiration from the beauty of the natural world around me, my zest for life, and the amazing places and people I have encountered throughout the world. I use genuine stones, crystals, glass beads, shells and wood in my designs, unless otherwise noted. Every stone, crystal, shell, etc. comes with their own powerful, uplifting properties and are paired with hypo-allergenic and nickel free earring backs or chains unless otherwise noted.
Along with my love for jewelry, I have always loved, advocated for, and worked around animals- both domestic and exotic. I spent 7 years as a zookeeper, volunteered at countless sanctuaries and rescues, and have helped re-home countless rodents, cats, birds, reptiles, and dogs.
Every piece that you see is either named after a specific dog, cat, horse, goat, rabbit or maybe even a jaguar, giraffe, otter, tiger, alligator, bison, or flamingo I've worked with. If you want to know more about your individual piece, you can always email me to learn more about my inspiration behind the name and design. 10% of each item sold goes back to local rescues in her hometown around Philadelphia and also the Houston Area.
I am extremely grateful for each one of you who visits my site, and for everyone who has motivated me, supported me, and inspired me along the way. Always strive to be a positive light and positive change in the world.
Enjoy and stay well <3
