Kate Miss Jewelry started in the summer of 2009 in New York City, after Kate couldn't find necklaces she wanted to wear and decided to make her own. Kate focuses on jewelry that is handmade, unique, and easily transitions between day and night - basic and statement. These days, the jewelry is handmade in her Los Angeles, California studio and the bronze is cast by a local family owned company. A new collection is released periodically in addition to the permanent collection of simple bronze necklaces.
Kate Miss is a graphic designer and jewelry designer who grew up in the Seattle area.
