About Kate Bajic

Kate has created jewellery since 2003, exhibiting her work internationally, at LOOT in New York, SIERAAD in Amsterdam and most recently at COLLECT in London. Pieces are influenced by natural forms, in particular lichens. Kate translates aspects into her work through traditional hand fabrication techniques. This involved approach allows slight imperfections, created during the making process, to bring a richness to her jewellery: something Kate celebrates, and hopes brings a vibrancy and value. She handcrafts pieces mainly in sterling silver and gold. Selected gemstones also form the focus in certain pieces, details of which are translated through into the finished jewellery, tying together the naturally occurring and the handmade.

Maker Enquiry Form

Kate is a passionate believer in handcrafting and using traditional techniques to create her jewellery. Her intricate designs are carefully hand pierced, a process which involves sawing shapes from the silver or gold using a hair fine blade; these forms are then often textured by hand using tiny punches to give distinctive patterning. Kate prefers to work directly with materials rather than drawing out designs, enjoying the processes involved and seeing where the making process takes her. She will work through many compositions when creating a new piece until she finds one that instinctively feels right.
