Meet Katie

Katie Thompson began stringing stones and playing with silver wire when she was 10. At 14, she was soldering and selling to her first hometown Virginia boutique. After years of living abroad, doing editorial work for Travel + Leisure magazine and getting a master's in European politics at NYU, she ended up coming back to what she has always loved and done best – designing and making jewelry. 

Katie’s distinctive style is influenced by the New York City streets as well as her travels throughout India, the Middle East, Asia, Europe and South America. She loves mixing metals to create pieces that are classic and easy to wear, with just a touch of an edge to make them stand out. Katie can often be found at the store or one of her holiday booths, wearing her creations and helping customers choose just the right piece.
