Hello, my name is Kat and welcome to my online store for Kat&Bee Jewellery
Kat&Bee Jewellery has developed from a love for skulls, flowers and uniqueness and the desire to create beautiful pieces that give a sense of meaning and passion behind.
Before Kat&Bee was born, I (Kat) had previously worked in media for 13 years at ELLE, Guardian and Observer, Company, Zest and a Good Housekeeping. My role was to create campaign ideas and content (shoots and editorial) that worked with different brands strategies. I got to work with some amazing brands creating some award winning content from Audi, VW, Universal film and music, Swarovski, Pandora, Enjoy England The Barbican to name a few.
Although I loved my job and the people in it I always knew that it wasn't my real calling and where my heart lay.
In 2010, the recession had hit hard with lots of redundancies across the team. After a very special holiday to Turkey with a close friend I decided to leave the corporate media world and take the big plunge and go solo. Most people thought that this was crazy but I chose not to listen and carried on. This is where the journey of Kat&Bee Jewellery began. I knew very little about jewellery and its world and also had no strategy or plan in place as to how I was going to make it happen! All I knew is that I would.
Almost immediately, I was featured in the Guardian Christmas Gift Guide which was a huge accolade and boost on so many levels. From here, things escalated. Kat&Bee exhibited at London Fashion Weekend that season and for many seasons after, got picked up by ASOS, Opening Ceremony, Henri Bendel and several other stockists. The business has been growing ever since.
