Kates work is a modern interpretation of tribal adornment. Drawing on ancient cultures such as African, Maori and native American for inspiration. Her jewellery is predominantly crafted in silver but also incorporates leather and a range of semi precious stones to produce a striking contrast. She designs to promote individuality, to make the wearer feel beautiful and to allow the unconventional to belong.
