About Katie Joy
Born and raised in London, gathering inspiration wherever she goes, Katie needed an outlet to explore her creative needs. She studied Art & Design in college & attended Goldsmiths University. Katie has many skills and talents. She now lives in a small city called Haarlem in the Netherlands.
With a leap of faith and amazing support from my friends and family I opened my shop. It was very scary and a brand new world to me. I have never run my own business before and this was a huge learning curve. I am of course, still learning.
I created abstract jewellery when I was in London College of Fashion along side textiles and fashion illustration. I then created eco jewellery when I attended Goldsmiths University. I learned many design and making skills here. That was when I became hooked. I wanted to create wearable art, that was feminine, glamorous & different.
I started talking to my friends and family about the possibility to open my own online shop, selling my creations. I was so excited, I could hardly sleep! And with the only money I had, I took the leap and here I am. The shop is steadily growing with the support of my customers . One day I hope to have a studio. Currently I am working in my garden-shed, dining room and any place I can get a clean surface!
Goldsmiths University Graduate of Design (BA
hon.) with various fashion backgrounds, including studying at London College of Fashion. I love designing and making wearable art, jewellery and accessories that are fashionable, unique, elegant and eccentric. I love going to art galleries and museums for inspiration. I hope you love my creations.
