Kate’s passion for jewellery was inspired whilst walking on the breathtaking beach at Holkham on the North Norfolk coast. Stumbling upon some pieces of sea glass, Kate fell in love with the simplicity of its texture and shape; she wondered about the romantic provenance of this beautiful natural treasure and felt compelled to capture the emotion.
With a natural creative energy Kate spent seven years at jewellery school and whilst learning the silversmith’s craft she lost herself in a wonderful world of creation; she had truly found her calling.
Kate’s jewellery collections come straight from the heart; by melting and hammering the silver, the simple organic designs take on a unique, natural feel. The pieces are often complemented with rough cut semi-precious and precious stones to add colour and glamour. Kate also considers it an honour to accept commissions for bespoke pieces.
Following a soft launch in April 2013, the KATE ♥ CHELL brand has been much-admired as an inspirational newcomer to the designer jewellery market; Kate Chell Jewellery supplies a handful of exclusive independent outlets throughout the UK and the response to Kate’s distinctive brand has been exhilarating.
Dividing her time between Norfolk and the family home in Leicestershire, Kate works from her studio / workshop in a converted Grade II listed 18th century dovecote.
Natural jewellery made with love.
