KATIE NEWELL

Katie s a North Park jewelry artist who is originally from the Chicagoland area. She spends a lot of her time traveling to participate in various art and craft shows. After receiving a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Metalsmithing from the University of Illinois, she began working in fine jewelry that focused on hand-skills and CAM technology. She then went on to study at the Gemological Institute of America to further her jewelry knowledge and skills. The technical training, she received from her fine jewelry background has allowed her to expand her focus on her own line of jewelry. All her work is handmade, one of a kind, and quality driven. Katie’s favorite jewelry technique is enameling which she has been practicing since she moved to California. Pushing the limits of color on metal is something she loves to do, and continues to explore every time she’s in the studio.
