All Kate Sydney pieces employ striking natural gemstones housed in handcrafted settings made with precious metals. Each creation is one-of-a-kind and reflects the breathtaking beauty of our planet.
What inspired you to start your business?
I always had a creative mind filled with idea I wanted to bring to life. Jewelry was my medium from the beginning (I started designing and crafting earrings when I was twelve). I could see what I wanted to happen in my mind's eye and gems and metals were components to make that happen.
What makes your house a home?
The people inside my house make it a home. But also the lovingly collected pieces of furniture and art, which are reflections of our unique brand of creativity.
What's one thing you love to do that you get to do almost every day?
I love to read and learn! Raising two young boys, I thankfully get to do both of those daily.
What simple pleasures do you like to enjoy?
I love hot coffee in the morning, being continually humbled by Mother Nature and what she has designed, group hugs from my boys, when a piece of jewelry I’ve created comes to life, and laughing until I can’t breathe.
Name one thing on your "bucket list."
To renovate an old barn in Vermont into a home away from home for my family. My grandparents lived their later years in a renovated barn, which my parents were married in. I’d love to create a family estate that could be passed down to future generations.
Why did you choose to be part of Nest on Main?
I love Nest for so many reasons: The community of artists, artisans, and entrepreneurs that has come together in the space; the incredible curation of pieces on display at Nest; and the opportunity to showcase my work in a beautiful space, which prioritizes people who own and run their own businesses.
