Featured Studio: GemKitty Jewelry

This weeks featured studio is GemKitty Jewelry owned by Kathy.
Kathy has been a "lover" of gemstones for a couple of years now. At first she began to collect the beautiful gemstones that "Mother Earth" creates and she also began learning about them. About 2 years ago she decided to try her hand at using her stones to make jewelry. Once she started there was no turning back. "Hooked" she was--sound familiar?
Her studio is filled with unique and lovely "non-mass" produced jewelry items that she has created. She designs each piece of jewelry to be as individual and special as the person who will wear it. Her very personal touch and skill is combined with the beautiful gemstones that "Mother Earth" creates. Kathy wants you to enjoy her jewelry for years to come so she uses only the very best beads and supplies. She also tries hard, whenever possible, to purchase supplies that have been made in the good ole USA. Supporting our economy is important to her.
There is a cute story about how she picked the name for her studio. It seems Kathy has a very discriminating cat named "Munchie" who absolutely loves beads as much as Kathy does. He is often found having a good time nosing around with her beads and supplies--now, this is a smart cat indeed!
On the personal side Kathy is a mother, a grandmother, and she works full time. What a woman of the new millenium we have here. "I am woman, hear me now!"
You are invited to GemKitty Jewelry to browse all the lovely designs that are in the studio. Comments about her creations are always welcome.
If you have a comment please contact her through her studio:
She'd love for you to visit and leave her a comment any time night or day.
