A passion for independence

My mom thought she could never take a leap, have her own business, and follow her dreams. I watched her grapple with that from day one as a single mom with two kids and a full-time job. 

The ultimate rebel, I’m trying to prove that what she thought was impossible is possible. A woman can choose her own path. Take risks. Do what she wants. Create her own business and succeed. 

Every time you buy a piece of Kathy Frey jewelry, you are helping me to realize my dream of being an awesome, independent, creative woman. I haven’t always had the support of my mom (as you might guess, we are quite different people), so I truly couldn’t do it without you. 

You are also showing the world that you don’t fit the mold, because this ain’t no traditional gold and diamond jewelry here. I coax industrial materials into being pretty, elegant, artsy or unusual... whatever messages are being channeled in the studio to break the stereotypes of what’s beautiful. Or possible.

From the Studio:

  • There are lots of upcoming events in 2014 for jewelry and sculptural objects, and Kathy will open her Hobbit House/Studio for Nevada County's Open Studios Tour this October.
  • Riverstone Bangles can be plated in rhodium or gold for tarnish-free finishes. Contact Kathy for pricing.
