Kate Miss Jewelry started in the summer of 2009 in New York City, after Kate couldn't find the type of necklaces she wanted to wear and decided to take classes and then make her own. Kate focuses on jewelry that is handmade, unique, and easily transitions between day and night - basic and statement. She incorporates her training as a graphic designer and artist into her work - playing with composition and shapes she returns to many times. She often refers to her work as organic geometrics - everything has a hand touch. These days, the jewelry is handmade in her Los Angeles, California studio and the bronze is cast by a local family owned company.
Kate Miss is a graphic designer and jewelry designer who grew up in the Seattle area. After graduating from college in Graphic Design and Illustration, she moved to NYC to work as a graphic designer for six years. She moved to Los Angeles in late 2010, where she now lives with her husband, her cranky but lovable cat Wendy, and her crazy, beautiful Australian Cattle dog June. She is a plant hoarder, chronic furniture re-arranger, and karaoke addict. In addition to her jewelry business, Kate runs a creative studio, specializing in many different areas of design, such as branding and web design.
