She describes her jewellery as, eclectic, tactile, colourful, & asymmetric. Each of her collections has a strong narrative and every piece is handmade by Katherine in her north London Studio.

“Each collection starts as a story. This might emerge from a walk in my local woods, or from a film I have seen, or an exhibition. One season I was inspired by the beautiful colourful plumage on birds in stark contrast to their urban environment in the Freightliners city farm in London. The next collection was sparked by a visit to the earth galleries in the Natural History museum, London, and an amazing find of electroplated crystals reminding me of comets and meteoroids.

 The current collection is inspired by a favourite childhood book ‘The Secret Garden’ by Frances Hodgson Burnett. From these stories I produce a series of mood boards, with an emphasis on colour. The pieces in each collection then emerge, inspired by the story and the gemstones that I have collected”
