Katie's journey in the jewelry business began while studying goldsmithing under Cecilia Bauer. Motivated by her newfound knowledge, Katie began experimenting with her own designs under the supervision of her mentor, Shimon Hirsch.
What began as custom engagement rings and a few special pieces designed for her friends and family quickly grew into an entire collection.
Inspired by travel, architecture and textiles, Katie's jewelry has a worldly feel reminiscent of Morocco. The pieces are cast in 14 karat yellow, rose and white gold and accented with unique types of diamonds such as flat Indian river, rose cuts and colored stones. The juxtaposition of old and new styles with eastern and western influences is her distinctive signature.
Certainly an intimate collection, most of the stones used in her collection are hand picked by her husband on his frequent travels to India and Hong Kong. Handmade in her workshop just outside of New York City, every piece is a reflection of her personal style, a blend of bohemian and luxe.
