“I’d describe my creations as pressed flowers and leaves, forever preserved in a necklace. I take my time in pouring out my resin and I work in small batches to ensure that each piece gets the attention it needs.”

Katie’s process of making delightful jewelry with real natural elements begins close to home. Like, in her actual backyard. She hunts down tiny little flowers and leaves that she thinks would look just delightful on a pretty, vintage-style pendant. (If she’s feeling adventurous, she might head to a local park or florist.) Once she’s found the perfect specimen, she places it in a bezel (you know, a metallic oval that’s got a lot of throw-back romance) and then pours in the resin, forever preserving it—though after a lot more coddling. The result is a line of jewelry that’s like a spring meadow, forever ready for you to run through it.
