My brand is KateeMarie jewelry and recently expanded to include Twig & Cone, my line of real flower dishes.
I've been making jewelry since I was in grade school and opened up my store on Etsy in 2009 after a friend had told me about it. I started with the idea of making little quilts but quickly decided that my passion was really jewelry. Early on, I discovered resin and really liked the concept of making necklaces with the nature bits that I'd been collecting. Flash forward to Winter 2014. After sorting out my flower pressings one night on a ceramic platter, I thought it would be wonderful to incorporate my larger flowers/leaves onto ceramic ring dishes and tiny plates. I scoured the internet and couldn't find anything that resembled my idea. I launched my first dish in January 2015 in my KateeMarie shop on Etsy. In Winter 2015, I decided that I wanted to further focus on my dishes and separate them from my jewelry line. In January 2016, Twig & Cone on Etsy went live.
I'm a crafter. I love diy projects. I love coffee. I love nature.
