Thank you for being here. I appreciate you, and I can't wait to continue this journey together. I know you have a lot of options when it comes to jewelry designers and it means so much to me that you are a supporter of Kate Sydney Jewelry.
I'm Kate, founder, maker, and the gigantic heart and soul of Kate Sydney Jewelry. I started making jewelry when I was 12 years old and my mom took me to a bead store right here on Long Island. I get my creativity from her and my appreciation of nature from my dad. From the time I was 8 to the time I was 21 my dad and I backpacked the Long Trail in Vermont. This is a 270 mile long hiking trail from Massachusetts to the Canadian border. Each year getting to spend that time with my dad, fending for ourselves, surrounded by the Green Mountains, was like hitting a giant reset button. It was centering, it was bonding, it was enjoying the most magnificent vistas, which could only be accessed on foot. Finding joy and beauty in the simple things has always been a source of calm for me.
All of these experiences have led me to where I am today. I create one-of-a-kind jewelry pieces for busy, creative women who like to wear a physical reminder of the breathtaking beauty of our planet.
I've been working hard on getting my first one-of-a-kind collection ready for release. It's called The Woodland Collection, and I know you're going to love it! Lots of blues, greens, purples, and of course gems with dendrites (fossilized minerals from thousands of years ago that look like branches - anyone else getting chills??).
ALSO! October's birthstones are tourmaline and opal...two of my all-time faves. Did you know that tourmaline comes in every color of the rainbow? It's not too late to get in on some tourmaline for October! Shoot me an email or a text if I can help you with anything :). Talk soon!
