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". 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 2003 the self-taught artist decided to settle in Charleston, South Carolina and began focusing on her line of custom jewelry. Her marine oriented background and the south carolina coast inspires 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.
