Get to Know

My name is Kate (That's me in the picture). I make a wide variety of jewelry to help fund my ever-growing list of crafty hobbies. All the jewelry is handmade and designed by myself. I have been making jewelry since I was old enough not to want to eat the beads. I make necklaces, bracelets, anklets, earrings, and even chainmaille items of the same categories. I also love to paint (watercolor and acrylics are my favorite painting mediums), so I hand paint metal charms and glass bottles. Some of my other hobbies include reading (all genres, but mostly fantasy), writing, drawing (black and white charcoal as well as India ink are my favorite drawing mediums), gaming (mostly obscure board and card games), cosplaying at conventions (for fun), singing, and cooking Korean food. You can find more about me on my artist page on facebook (Kaytiebug) listed above! You can find more personal info, stories, and thoughts about various topics via the blog link below (through artfire.com).

My mom's name is Kathryn (but most people call her Kat) and she is the candle maker :) She is a writer as well as a stay at home mom with three crazy kids (me being the craziest of them all). Some of her other hobbies include reading, gardening, and being snuggled to death by her crazy-for-her cat, Henry Calcifer (seriously, he likes to play "scarf" with Kat and only tolerates everyone else). Together we make candles with jewelry in them!

The Bio photo is of a tattoo I got during a trip to Chiang Mai, Thailand (March 2016), I designed myself.

    I'm not any good when it comes to doing hair, (mine or other people's sadly), but I love doing kooky things with make up... this is my neon look ;) I am the go-to girl for make up among my friends and show choir!

    Henry Calcifer (We argued over his name- I chose Calcifer the fire demon and everyone else wanted Henry), my moms big, fat baby (Seriously he is at least 25 pounds; I put the bow tie on him...he didn't approve).
