I’m Katherine, I’m in my 30s and am currently living in Paris. I moved here two years ago to get my MBA, and 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). Prior to that, I went to college in Connecticut, but am originally from Minnesota.
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, since I’ve been in school. But I am planning on “relaunching” this fall.) I’ve also dabbled in designing and making my own (less exotic) jewelry.
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!
