Kathryn Riechert was born and raised in Ocala, FL, and moved to Savannah, GA to pursue an education in art. In 2002, she graduated with honors obtaining a BFA from the Savannah College of Art and Design (majoring in 'Metals and Jewelry'.)
Kathryn's inspirations come from everyday life, as she seeks to transform the beauty she finds into the permanence of metal and stone.
The designs are often uplifting with positive messages in the hopes that they can make the world a little bit brighter.
Kathryn fabricates with metal and also does glass enameling on copper. In 2010, she began to introduce recycled silverplate flatware into her designs. With a love for the history that the flatware has, these new pieces have a combination of elements: enamel, gemstones, and silver metalwork. Bringing new life to the flatware, while at the same time imparting a tangible history to the resulting jewelry design, is exciting!
The jewelry she creates is generally uplifting and/or happy, as she would like her impact on the world and those around her to, at minimum, be a smile.
