Subtle yet striking, substantial yet delicate - Kat's designs cleverly balance gold, silver, oxidisation, precious and semi-precious stones within a number of unique collections. More than an accessory.
Kat uses a variety of techniques to create often unique pieces. Pieces are often inspired by playing with form as the design develops until a balance is achieved between the materials and the design. Kat's jewellery mixes gold, silver, precious and semi-precious stones, and oxidisation to provide pieces which are highly distinctive and modern yet extremely wearable. Chunky jewellery is a favourite, however Kat is also a specialist in fine wire work for more delicate pieces, and combinations of both are entirely possible. Granulation, (creating individual spheres of gold and silver) is applied throughout the signature molecule range, providing texture and is then oxidised to provide depth. Pieces are also often designed around gemstones selected for their unusual cut and colour. The jewellery is often described as intricate yet not fussy, which enables it to be worn everyday whilst still making a statement.
Kat sells directly to customers, exhibits her work regularly and also works on a commission basis. If you see something which you like, but, for example you would like it set with a garnet instead of a sapphire this is entirely possible as many pieces are made to order.
The majority of items can be engraved if desired and are hallmarked as required by the London Assay Office. Please feel free to contact Kat directly as all questions are very welcome. Thank you for taking the time to browse this website.
