Katie J. Evans
Katie is an artist and designer who recently moved to the Bay Area from Portland, Ore. Always intrigued by the cycle of life, she has developed a line of jewelry that highlights the forgotten and discarded. Bones, snakeskin, insects, turtle scutes, and feathers are chosen for their textures, shape, and colors as much as for the roles they play in the natural world. Using glass and metal, Evans creates unique reliquary jewelry that provides a wearable snapshot of the vitality and endurance of these elements.
