Having accumulated over 15 years experience of designing for brands and suppliers Katherine became disillusioned with mass production processes overseas. She felt detached from the pieces that she had so lovingly designed, but then arrived in large volumes, sometimes broken and poorly made. The constant cycle of creating for the sake of it to persuade people to mass consume substandard products didn't sit well with her. So she returned to her first love of using her hands to create things, dusted off her beloved jewellery tools and set about creating Katherine Barber Jewellery.
ABOUT THE BRAND
Lovingly designed and handcrafted from her Devon workshop. Quality craftsmanship and striking design are the core of her business ethos. The pieces are made in small quantities or made to order. Crafted using precious metals, the jewellery has been made with longevity in mind, to be worn and loved for years to come.
We have created the LDC values in the form of our three symbols that explore the mindful, traceable and transparent processes and practices that our brands adhere to and stand for, to help you discover how the products are made and make conscious choices.
Katherine Barber products are made in small quantities in the UK.
