Bespoke commissions Form a large part of my Practice. I enjoy getting to know my discerning clients and as an extension of them their Jewellery has to tell their story. I enjoy Connecting people and their story through creating a new Heirloom, A MaRK of TimE, A Small and SIGNIFICANT Object thAT CAN HOLD DEEP EMOTION and REFLECT A SMALL PART OF THEIR UNIQUENESS..

PRIOr to MovING TO Dundee and Establishing the STuDIO ORangery Katie was Lead Design Tutor at CITy ANd Guilds London Art School and Jewellery Tutor at Morley COllege. HAVING WORKed as a DEsigner Maker in London for 20 years and Lectured at a number of London Art Schools IT WAS AN EXCITING PROSPECT TO START MY OWN small JEWELLERY SCHOOL IN the CITY WHERE I STARTED MY JEWELLERY STORY.
