About me

I'm Kate, jewellery designer and illustrator from the UK. I am currently living in Tokyo, where I continue to run my shop, and practise illustration. My jewellery design ethos is to create playful, conversation-starting jewellery made from ethically sourced materials, mainly wood. I studied illustration and bring my love of drawing into the jewellery. I draw each piece by hand, and work to retain the hand drawn aesthetic through the precise laser cutting process. I’ve been working on the business full time for 5 years now!
