When I first started Kat&Bee Jewellery the underlying vision was to create unique pieces with a true meaning behind that people love, cherish and share. This was always at the heart of the business and came through with each design and its carefully thought out name, where each collection was inspired from, and the overall sweet ethos that quickly became Kat&Bee. The craziness of today's life often means that things can occasionally slip, or get forgotten, and so you lose sight of the original goal, vision and the why. Although things are going great with Kat&Bee, I would be lying to myself if I didn't admit that this has happened with both me and with the business. Only a little, but it has happened! The business is now going off in so many different directions which is super exciting but before we fully embark on each of the different journeys and the next chapter I think it's important to home in and remember why Kat&Bee is here. So this is what I have done.
I think that the ultimate luxury is knowing the meaning and uniqueness of everything in the world. Being a part of it and adding to it. Because meaning means everything. From knowing your star sign, to the power of the rose quartz or citrine, to the beauty of shape, texture and colour and true craftsmanship. Meaning is at the core.
The next stop is the Kat&Bee Manifesto. Everything within and for Kat&Bee - whether it be the pieces that are designed and made, the workshops that are taught, the commissions that we work with you on or the collaborations that we partner with will come back to one, two, three or all of the points within the Manifesto. We will always have this as our heartland.
Here is the K&B Manifesto (I hope you like it!).
With this, I'm introducing a monthly theme to everything we do at Kat&Bee, so we can share with you the thought, power and meaning behind everything we are inspired by and create. The themes will define Kat&Bee's journey and the different strands and projects that we're working on. They will allow you to immerse yourself into the world of meaning and exploration. From being bold (my word of the year!) to being intuitive to confident to independent we will delve deeper into each meaning.
You will find out more about Kat&Bee, me and the world that we are living in. We will share with you different projects, collaborations, crafts, designs, products, astrological birthstones, mentoring, business development and our general being that all fit into the monthly theme. Because meaning means everything.
The first theme for March's is Bright. You can read why here.
Before I go, I would like to say a big thank you for all your continued support and love towards Kat&Bee over the past six years. It means so much to have your faith and belief in both a me and the business. I couldn't be where I am without you and I am forever grateful.
The next chapter is about to start and I hope that I can take you with me on this journey.
All my love
/ Because meaning means everything.
