About Katie’s work: “I create small batch handcrafted, cruelty-free & sustainably sourced jewelry and sacred objects for your home: wall adornments, semi-precious gemstone altars, memorial jewelry, and more. I use lead-free stained glass (Tiffany Method / Copper Foil) tools and materials to encase ethically sourced, cruelty-free items from nature: butterfly and moth wings, snakeskin shed, feathers, and more.”
An artist and designer originally from Portland, Oregon, Katie J. Evans is inspired by the year-round color of the Bay Area environs and has enjoyed the process of allowing this muse to inform her distinct style of jewelry. Using glass and metal, she creates tangible representations of the beautiful and the visceral that are both regional and universal. Butterfly wings, feathers, bones, snakeskin, bees and other objects are chosen for their textures, shape, and colors as much as for the roles they play in the natural world.
