Kat Barry, Kat&Bee's designer, brings a flair for design built up from several years working with fashion brands at ELLE, The Guardian & Observer and Company magazine.
Working from her design studio in East London, Kat's jewellery collection brings together her contemporary yet chaotic style and isinfluenced by all elements of her life and culture. Kat&Bee creates original and hand-made one off pieces with designs ranging from quirky gothic, to big and stunningly beautiful to simple yet eclectic.
Texture and shape are paramount to every design, and each piece is hand-crafted using a mix of beads and objects fused together, often with Kat's trademark skull. Each piece is intended to capture the wearers individuality, and, imbued with an eclectic feel. A Kat&Bee piece really is a one-off find.
Getting a feeling for the tastes of the truly stylish, Kat worked with all the leading fashion brands before deciding to go it alone and set up her own business. One year in, her designs and collections have built up from fantastic word of mouth.
