Kathy sprouted in the backbone of America’s Midwest; Cincinnati Ohio. At the age of 13, she befriended a man from Nigeria who was selling African trade beads at a flea market. That began an obsession that started her on her jewelry path. Having attended the prestigious School for the Creative and Performing Arts, she left home at 15 and began selling her wears to finance her travels across the country while following the band The Grateful Dead.
Kathy now lives in Culver City, CA with her husband and business partner, Eric, and their two children, Stella and Wyatt.
She is influenced by everything that surrounds her… from love and loss to dewdrops dancing in the sun. A lover of travel, she feels that her journeys to other lands and experiencing other cultures has been a primary resource for inspiration.
