Yep, I make all this!

Kat, the artist

I grew up around art. My dad was an accomplished artist and I was always encouraged in any art form I tried. I was doing portraits in 8th grade, and started painting murals in 10th grade. After painting my bedroom, I also left 3 more murals in my high school.


I taught art to home schooled children in the early 90s and in 1997 obtained a degree in graphic design and won my first ADDY. (like an OSCAR for design in the advertising world). I returned to mural painting in 1998, and currently have hundreds of murals in 8 states! I've been hired by millionaires and billionaires, as well as many schools in the southeast.You can see my murals here:  


So how did I get started making this jewelry?

I discovered the art form called "poured acrylics" in 2017 when an artist friend of mine posted something. What's that? I tried it on canvases, but after painting murals all day, I didn't really want to be painting canvases. Then it happened.... I discovered how to use the art form to make jewelry and that was it!! When I discovered this technique would allow me to create beautiful and unusual jewelry at a price nearly everyone can afford - I went nuts!


I am in the studio nearly every day now, just loving it each and every time! Making this type of jewelry has what I call "the Forrest Gump effect" - in that I have some control, but I never really know what I'm going to get! That is the fun and challenge of it!

I've made over 5000 pieces of our premium artisan jewelry now! Our unusual accessories are made in a 10-12 step process. Basically, colors of acrylics are chosen, thinned, layered, and then moved to create the art.

The process requires two weeks for our glass jewelry and one week for our slate and balsa wood. And each step is important - from choosing archival quality paint and surgical steel settings to going to the various quarries where we hand select our slate. Color combos and how each color is layered in the cup is also critical to the look of each color combo. I will often experiment with the layering to get a look I am after. Once the painting step is done for each type of jewelry, we are only halfway into the process! 

Slate was added to our offerings in 2019. Then, we added a western line called Maverick Man in 2020. ( Our accessories are worn by people like Sly Stallone of the Tulsa King series, as well as top musicians and singers in Southern Gospel, Bluegrass and rock!

We'd love to have YOU wearing some of our handcrafted accessories! We travel all over the Eastern US to various square dance, bluegrass, country and western dance festivals, along with some craft shows like the Gatlinburg Craftsman's Fairs in July and October. And you can always buy from this website 24/7.

I love making custom pieces for that special event or that special someone. Just contact us with what you need and we'll go from there. Be sure to give me that 3 week window to have time to make your special pieces and get them to you.

Thanks for being interested! Happy shopping!!
