About Kate

Kate designs unique and stylish jewelry inspired by her life's passion for scuba diving, marine biology and an intense love of all things "ocean."

A native of Canada, Kate decided to delay college and spend time traveling. She became a certified scuba instructor, living and teaching in the caribbean before returning to school to pursue her education. After earning a degree in Marine biology, Kate worked with an experiential education program for teenagers that enabled her to travel the world including Egypt, Australia, Ecuador and the Caribbean teaching scuba and marine science.

Kate's enthusiasm for the underwater world provides the creative side of her personality with an abundance of rich, vibrant, and colorful imagery that she translates into her jewelry designs.

In 2010 began focusing on her line of custom jewelry. Her marine oriented background and her newfound home on the South Carolina coast inspired her to work with natural materials and gemstones, resulting in a refined, organic style. Each piece is original and handcrafted by Kate in her Charleston studio. Kate's adventuresome personality is reflected in her work, making every piece a unique creation.
