Interview in A Rose by Name by Pippit Carlington

Kalicat

Interview in A Rose by Name by Pippit Carlington


Catherine Marche of Kalicat Designs has am extensive background in graphic arts and graduated from the University of Orléans (FRANCE) in 1990 in Mathematics and Physics, Beaux-Arts d'Orléans, Conservatoire National de Musique, from 1990-91 the University of Vermillion (USA), graduated in Computer Sciences and Music, 98-2000 Central St Martins College of Art and Design, Etching - Photoshop and web design.

In the year 2000 she went on to study at Putney School of Arts, Screenprinting, then in 2001 at Artichoke Studios - Lithography, Bankside Gallery – Linocut, in 2003 learned Book Illustration at the Chelsea School of Arts, then learned Adobe Illustrator in 2003, and studied Fashion Illustration at the London College of Fashion in 2005.

She worked for 10 years as an IT consultant, and then went on to become a Fashion Illustrator, putting to work a lot of the skills she had previously learned.

Born in Neuilly-sur-Seine, Paris, in 1967, then growing up in several countries, Catherine learned to speak several languages. She often changed schools as often as 3 times a year. Her ability to adapt to many different environments came in handy later in life.

"I grew up in several countries as my Dad was in the airforce. I went to kindergarten in Germany, then Primary school in Germany, Africa and back to France. I love the fact it made me bilingual and have a real easiness learning new foreign languages. I also speak English, Spanish, a bit of Dutch and Creole and am learning Japanese. I stil have a love of travelling and discovering new cultures. I studied in the USA and noe live in London UK."

Catherine has a love of colors, feels she may be influenced by Die Brucke artists like Otto Mueller. "I also love Dali, Picasso and am crazy for Nikki de St Phalle and Louise Bourgois, "she remarks. "I have also collected a few African artefacts and sculptures made of wood which are a delight to my senses."

Her parents were very permissive and went further than most to nurture the artistic qualities in their child. "As a child, my parents "gave me" free expression on my walls, which still have some murals to these days and my brothers and I also had a few notebooks where we could write and draw everything we wanted. My parents always encouraged all artistic expression and allowed me to learn music. I have a degree in music and still paint, illustrated, play the pianio, and the saxophone."

In addition to having worked as an IT consultant she has worked as an interpreter, a model, a translator, a math teacher, a private tutor, an arts teacher at various times during her life.

Now she doesn't exhibit as much as she used to since her children have been born but in addition to making jewelry she currently paints, does Fashion design, and designs wedding invitations.

Some of her work is still on display in a museum in Tayali (Zambia).

She sites among the disadvantages of being a jewelry artist in the UK; the cost of living being so high there making it hard to compete with US prices, and the advantages being that she lives in a hub of creative people and that people there have very eclectic tastes in art.

"I really like The Penland book of Jewelry which showcases unusual jewelry and techniques.Visits to the Victoria and Albert Museum and estate auctions are also very inspirational."

She recommends to other artists to make what they feel like making and not necessarily what they think will sell or what others do.

If you look at her catherinemarche.com site gallery you will see just how varied her work is and how many ways she’s been able to put it to use!

Catherine has had a number of corporate clients for her illustrations, and her work has been in private museum collections in France, UK, USA, West Indies, Netherlands, and Spain and represented in galleries in France and in the US (Pennsylvania, and Florida).

Her work has appeared in magazines, on TV, and she has retained high-profile clients such as L’Oreal.

Her jewelry includes anything from simple beaded designs to traditional precision metal fabrication.

"I've Always been crazy for jewelry, always will be" says Catherine. "I had about 60 pairs of earrings as a teenager, which was when I started making my own jewels. I have designed and commissioned several pieces in sterling silver, 18K gold, and platinum, including my engagement ring and wedding ring. Becoming a jeweller was just a normal extension of my artistic expression. (Catherine is going 3D)." It is quite interesting that so many jewelry artists started out in 2 dimensional art and feel compelled to translate their work into 3-D form although they may continue drawing and painting or alternate between both artforms. I have heard this from a number of people and I myself have always felt a need to have things be 3-dimensional. There is a sense of completeness you just don't quite get from a flat canvas or paper.

Catherine once was looking through a fashion magazine after one of her children was born and her husband asked her what she'd like as a present to celebrate the birth. She came across the picture of a gorgeous emerald-cut Rubellite ring by the exclusive Boucheron Jewellers. Not having any idea how much it cost, her husband took her over there, they got it out of the vault and when it came time to pay for it the clerk informed them it would be $440,000. Her husband looked as though he might faint any minute, and she told the man showing it to them that this was "a bit over" their "budget," returning the ring to it's secure fortress behind thick steel doors.

Surprisingly, Catherine says that her most successful venue has been on Etsy, then shows and Open Studios second and third.

Look for more of her work at VIX Emporium in Philadelphia.

Techniques she would like to learn are Pave', Repousse, and Chasing.

When asked what her plans are to present her work to holiday shoppers she said, "I have already done 1 Christmas market, did an open studio today, and will do another one next week; Hidden Art London

Her plans long-term for her business are to create new collections, be commissioned by fashion houses to design their collections, and she would like her jewelry to be liked by many, and to adorn many more.

Some of her nicest pieces are these that I have included here.

These Blum Blum earrings are her best-sellers.

Blum Blum sterling silver Stud Earrings - $32.00Solid sterling handcrafted pair of earrings delivered with sterling silver earposts, in an organza pouch.

This ring has an anticlastic look, with a substantial width, and subtly textured surface; graceful but with a very nice weightiness.

Large Sterling Silver Ring - $49.50
Adjustable, formed ring with hammered finish (one size fits all)

This bracelet on the other-hand makes use of its wispiness and contrasting negative space to capitalize on its lightness. With just one ring in 18 Karat gold amongst the sterling silver loops, its delicate understatement is what makes this piece work.

Loopy - 18K gold and Sterling Silver Bracelet - $495
Solid 18K yellow gold and Sterling Silver BraceletEach loopy link has been forged and fabricated by hand. Bracelet measures approx. 7”.

This piece with round Jade beads spilling in a bunch from the center of a large-link sterling chain, fittingly named Green Peas Delight really is delightful! The beads seem to cascade from it like a lively waterfall.

Green Peas Delight Jade and sterling Silver Bracelet - $50.00
Sterling silver chain with 7 jade beads resembling peas, approx length 7", or 19 cm.
Surprisingly, Catherine says that her most successful venue has been on Etsy, then shows and Open Studios second and third.

Kalicat - Pearls of Reasonable Price

Kalicat on etsy has work, and lots of it, with one of my most favorite things in the whole wide world. I love pearls. Pearls of all sizes and shapes and colors. They are sensuous in shape and their lustre is seductive to the eye. Kalicat uses her training obtained in jewelry at Central St Martins and Hatton Gardens, in London well when making up this eye candy.
A Mom of 2, she says: "I keep sane by painting and illustrating Fashion, jewelry-making and dreaming about all the things I will create in the near future".

She creates each item in either gold, sterling silver or base metal using a combination of stones and other elements. You can see more of Catherine's work on her blog.

In the meantime feast your eyes on these treasures from the oyster. Eclipse Pearls with Honey Jade Earrings ...


and Bubble Gum Pearl Earrings


Custom Orders are not a problem so be sure to contact Kalicat aka Catherine if you want something special, need something to be customized, or like something already sold.

Catherine is also a member of the Art Jewelry Collective http://artjewelrycollective.wordpress.com/ and a Self Representing Artist Jewelry Designer - SRAJD #0551

An eye for color

An Eye for Color, 


There’s something about the color combination of the pink jade, honey jade, and silver plated ball in this bracelet that really appeals to me.

I only wear uncomplicated jewelry, so I enjoy the simplicity of each of the three separate pieces as well.

Born in Paris, Kalicat, the creator of this piece, is an artist and illustrator. She lives in London, but her work can be seen all over the world, including Spain, Zambia, and France. Her Etsy shop, http://kalicat.etsy.com/ hosts this and other beautiful beaded and gemstone jewelry. She also has some unique sterling silver pieces that would be perfect every day adornments. Visit her shop by clicking the link or the picture above.

 Objects of Desire

 I'm not so secretly in love with jewelry artists that do beautiful metalwork, as I dabble in silversmithing myself and fantasize about having a full metal studio someday.

For now I get my fix from visiting artists like Etsy's Kalicat, the shop of Londoner Catherine Marche. She creates lovely "jewellery" and self-described Objects of Desire.

Catherine was nice enough to chat with me, and had this to say about her art and craft:

How did you get into your craft? 
Once upon a time, I used to make my own little jewels and also some to give away as gifts. A few friends noticed and started to commission pieces for weddings, hen parties, an a shop owner asked me to place some of them in her shop.... They SOLD. A few years later, I was thinking of reconverting from IT to a more creative job, in addition to painting and illustrations (see http://www.catherinemarche-designs.com). I got some training and Voila. What is fascinating about jewellery is that the area is so vast, I feel I can learn and create new things for a very long time.

What inspires you?
 Fashion, people, colors, "poesie", travelling around the world, art, the sun...

What challenges you in your art? Creating from a brief. I love when someone comes to me and says "I am looking for something special...." and they usually do not even know how to express it. I really enjoy playing with discerning their personality and what makes they tock, to then come up with a design they will love.

 How long have you had your shop? January 2007

Do you consider your shop a job or a hobby?


 I would say that Etsy is a little window of international opportunities.

Do you have any advice for fellow Etsy shop owners?

Promote, network and be yourself.




And lastly, what is your favorite fun fact about yourself?

I own (and wear) a blue wig :) and the feature.
Another one is that my legs are too long for my trousers. Thank you for the interview and the feature. I offer your readers 20% off my jewelry shop until 01.01.2008, using code Headley20

So there you have it, a hidden bonus for reading through this post! You can find out more about this artist so that you, too, can be more "stunning, chic and elegant" by visiting Kalicat's blog or her MySpace.

a feature by Linda Chandler


My mother always commissioned her jewelry and would take me with her as a child to the jewelers. It was fascinating to see the design process.
I had a real craze for earrings and little pocket money so the solution was to make my own. I got materials from a bead store and started to wear my creations.

Many years later, I could not find an engagement ring I liked that was different from the usual "Solitaire" diamond. Quite naturally, I designed and commissioned it. I also had to design a matching wedding band and my husband's. As time went by, I was designing and commissioning more and more: earrings, chains, rings....
It suddenly occurred to me that I should just learn the proper skills myself and get on with it. That was in October 2006.

I also enjoy creating bespoke jewels for clients, turning their ideas into the jewels of their dreams, for themselves or loved ones. It can be challenging, fun and tricky at times.

I love working with 18k and 22K yellow gold and setting stones. I think it is fantastic to be able to transform raw sheets of metal and wire into something sparkly, precious and beautiful that is unique.


I also paint and illustrate http://www.catherinemarche.com, and my work has been exhibited internationnally, is in private and corporate collections in several countries.

My favorite stones at the moment are PInk and Red stones: Rubies, Rubellite, Tourmaline, Pink Sapphire, PInk Opal, Kunzite...

What do you find most challenging as an artist?
Working alone, I find it quite isolating and lonely at times.
Otherwise, I really enjoy coming up with new ideas all the time, and dealing with commissions from a brief. I am happy taking commissions for jewelry and illustrations/paintings.
I also paint and illustrate http://www.catherinemarche-designs.com, and my work has been exhibited internationally, is in private and corporate collections in several countries. I particularly enjoy creating jewellery or invitations for weddings and engagements.
It is the biggest satisfaction for me to see sparkles in the eyes and a huge smile of delight on a client's face when they discover my creation.


What do you find most challenging as an artist trying to do business?
Also, the constant promotion and lookout for new venues is a big challenge, as most jobs only are from 9 to 5pm, being an artist is a whole different way of life. You think it, you dream it, you make it, you are IT :)

What do you love about your creations?
The versatility of them. It is fabulous being able to change and adapt depending on the music I am listening to, the materials I am dealing with, the colors I am inspired by, the words that come to my mind.
Sometimes, I will thing of a word (like Temptation), and create a line around it.
Sometimes, I will be inspired by a gemstone and create a setting around it to enhance its beauty
And of course, I am thrilled by the fact I deal with precious metals and stones, my favorites being diamonds, tourmaline's, pink sapphires and Rubies (at the moment).
I have also just seen some wonderful Sun stone gems which I know I will just have to purchase and create something for, probably with 18K or 22K gold.

Do you have a favorite piece you wish you could keep?
Yes, I do, mainly all of them :)
More seriously, I like this one, with a pink Topaz, message image
and my Mercury Ringmessage image
Oh and some Peridot and yellow 18k gold earrings and and and....


Anything else you wish to say!?
Oh yes! Thank you so much for featuring me and my creations.
I am working on a new collection which should be ready in Spring.
In the meantime, In honor of this lovely feature, I have a special discount for all your readers! Enter the code "90days05" in the message space when shopping and I will give you a discount of $5.00 on all my items on the site!
