BluKatDesign Handmade Upcycled Jewelry
“I love the challenge of taking an old funky clunky earring or bobby pin and creating something new that’s totally fashionable today, easy and fun for you to wear.”
WELCOME! I’m Heather, I love to make unique, one-of-a-kind statement necklaces and everyday jewelry by upcycling vintage jewelry and everyday items in to fabulous pieces you wont see on anyone else! I love the challenge of taking an old funky clunky earring or bobby pin and creating something new that’s totally fashionable today, easy and fun for you to wear. You will most definitely get noticed wearing BluKatDesign jewelry! If you love color and creative accessories this is your place!
I have been making jewelry and have been a professional designer of high end modern gold and platinum jewelry in Seattle for over 30 years, studied jewelry design under the master of found object art jewelry, Ron Ho and have received awards for my art jewelry including an award from the Pacific Northwest Arts and Crafts Exhibition. The past several years I have been designing wedding rings using computer CAD/CAM also. I have been creative and artsy all of my life so when my niece told me about Etsy a few years ago it seemed only natural to open up an Etsy shop and named it after my cat, a Russian Blue, BluKatDesign.
As if I don’t spend enough time making little things, I also have a love for dollhouse miniatures. I have made a Victorian dollhouse, several room boxes including an old fashioned clock and jewelry shop and an exotic tea shop. I also have made a garden with a conservatory complete with mini plants made of paper and polymer clay! If I am not working on jewelry or miniatures, I might be painting, crafting, hiking, foraging for mushrooms, blogging or playing with my puppy Zoe.
