about

I’m Katherine, I’m in my 30s and am ‘homeless’ (errrr, living with my parents in Minneapolis).  Until recently, I lived in Paris, where I moved to get my MBA.  Before that, I lived in New York City for nearly 10 years, working in media and fashion and starting my own jewelry business (more on that, below).

Oh, and a few other things:

I’m passionate about jewelry.  My passion for jewelry really began after college, when I moved to NYC and started traveling extensively on vacations.  So while working full-time, I traveled to Turkey, Morocco and India and began collecting and selling the amazing handcrafted jewelry that I found there.  I later started working with the artisans themselves, as well as through an international crafts organization.  I’ve taken a break from the business, though, while I was in school.  While living in Paris, I began collecting designer costume jewelry (Yves Saint Laurent, Claire Dévé, Kalinger…)

I’m obsessed with all things style – fashion, textiles, furniture, graphic design…I always have been, but I’ve become more of a student of it over the last few years.  And living abroad and traveling has provided a great deal of insight.  I look forward to sharing some of the remarkable things that I come across in my journeys!

I love animals – and have two feline muses of my own, Amelia and Oscar.  They were both rescues, and I strongly urge anyone planning to adopt a pet, to choose a rescue animal.
