Shortly after graduating with a diploma in Radio & Television Broadcast in Toronto, Katye set off to explore the world. After spending time in Australia, Fiji, New Zealand, and parts of Africa and Central America, she was inspired by the beautiful and unique jewellery from the differing cultures – it was enough inspiration to last a lifetime.
After settling in Ottawa and having a son, It was while on maternity leave that Katye discovered her passion for creating jewelry. Word of mouth spread quickly, and before she knew it, people (friends, family and even strangers!) were placing orders.
Self-taught, Katye's jewelry is simple and elegant, and can transform from being casual day wear, into night-on-the town wear. Materials used are sterling silver, 14 karat gold-fill and various gems from around the world. Every piece is handmade by Katye in her home studio.
