FAQS

© KATHERINE PRIEST JEWELLERY 2018

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Katherine takes her inspiration from architectural forms where simple patterns form the basis of her designs. Her spiral collection was inspired by church architecture where shapes were manipulated in CAD to produce elegant, innovative jewellery. She finds the use of technology very exciting and often gets her CAD designs, rapid-prototyped and cast whilst still incorporating traditional techniques such as setting beautiful gemstones to compliment her work.

Katherine's workshop is on the Harbour Arm in Margate where she encourages people to come and see her at work and to discuss commissioning bespoke pieces. Please e-mail or phone to organise a date and time.
