Hello and welcom​e to the official website of CrystalKat! I'm Kaitlin but over my life I've acquired many nicknames, the most predominant one being Kat. When considering a business name I wanted something that spoke to me and of me. For as long as I can remember I've always had a rock/crystal/fossil collection and a fascination for creating. I started drawing and painting at a young age but quickly found different paths to jewelry making through friendship bracelets, bead looming, hemp knot work, and wire wrapping. It wasn't until I was in high school that I found a passion for metalsmithing. Almost 10 years after graduating I found my way back to the bench and working with metal. I've spent the last 4 years re-learning and expanding on my skills. I'm always pushing myself to try new things with my art as I still paint and even do a bit of woodburning but metalsmithing has captured my attention and my heart. I derive so much joy out of designing a piece and forming it into reality, there really is something magical about it. I have met so many amazing people since I've stepped back into art and a brief internship at a local jewelry store introduced me to my partner Erin (pictured with me on the left) who is also a metalsmith. I never imagined I would find a partner who I shared so many similar passions with. Even though we are individual artists we vend at shows where we sell our jewelry and work on collaborative pieces together. You can find upcoming shows and classes that we offer on the events page. We are currently located in Columbus, Ohio but have big dreams of traveling, creating, and living as full time metalsmiths on the road. Until then I plan on manifesting magic through metal, paint, wood, crystals, and healing. Happy Shopping!
