Never Needs Watering,

I love flowers, especially the sort that I can wear. Kalicat Designs has the sweetest flower rings I've seen in a long time. Her Sunshine Flower Ring makes me smile: it's bright and sunny, needs no watering, and won't make me sneeze.

Kalicat's artisan-crafted Belle Blum Ring is so stunning it was featured on Etsy's front page recently. With a choice of matching earrings, this is the perfect set to feed my flower habit.

Kalicat handcrafts her jewelry (or jewellery in U.K. spelling) in London. Can't afford the airfare? Visit her at:

Multi-Faceted Kalicat Creates Varied Gems

Kalicat (Catherine Marche) is the designer of jewelry created to be "stunning and elegant." This multi-faceted lady has achieved success in both left-brained and right-brained activities. Early on she graduated in Mathematics and Physics from the University of Orléans in France and Beaux-Arts d'Orléans, Conservatoire National de Musique and later from the University of Vermillion in the USA in Computer Science and Music. From there she branched out into Photoshop, etching and web design at Central St. Martins where she also studied jewelry design. But we're not done until we also learn that she is also an accomplished fashion illustrator, having studied at the London College of Fashion. I found her web site most interesting and wondered if there is anything she doesn't do well. Her paintings are also wonderful.

> The Eleni sterling silver ring shown above is completely adjustable and will fit any of your fingers. The three spheres can be seen as symbols of friendship.

After Catherine had worked in the Information Technology field for 10 years, and at the same time drawing, painting and exhibiting her work, the tug became stronger, and the right side of her brain more demanding as she "took the plunge into freelance illustrating.

> The Nefertiti massive turquoise necklace shown here with authentic turquoise nuggets which measure 1/2" to 1 inch each are believed to be lucky in Egypt and Arabic countries and was highly regarded by the Incas and Aztecs as well. Who wouldn't adore this beautiful piece with the added gemstones spilling down the back?

Catherine's artwork can be seen in public collections at Museo municipal de Ourense (Spain), Museum Tayali (Zambia), and paintings in Hospitals in the UK. She also has work in private collections in France, UK, USA, West Indies, Netherlands, and Spain as well as in several galleries: a very talented lady who also plays the saxophone, skis, does whitewater rafting and dances. (This makes me think that Catherine is actually 8 people! How can just one person find the time?)

> Isn't this purple rhapsody bracelet a beauty? It's a selection of fine gemstones: amethyst, rose quartz, smokey quartz and citrine dangling and jiggling away on a sterling silver belchior chain. (length: 6.5 inches).

I hope you will make time to visit Catherine's Etsy shop and her blog, but be sure to look also at her website. You can click the link mentioned above.
