Origins + Essence
Verdante Studio is a handcrafted jewelry line fusing vibrant energetic gemstone jewelry with positive psychology to create elegant energetic talismans. Verdante is rooted in the belief that infusing jewelry with intention, from both the artist and the wearer, can be a powerful catalyst for connection & transformation.
About the Designer
A Texas native and citizen of the world, Katie is an artist, jewelry designer & yogi with a passion for creating deeply resonant jewelry.
Previously a marketing professional for a fortune 500 company, Katie’s curiosity drew her from the well-worn path to pursue a creative journey of her own making. She launched verdantestudio.com while completing yoga teacher training in Bali, traveling for nearly a year as a digital nomad before returning to Texas. Now based in Dallas, she continues to find inspiration throughout her travels, creating new designs and sourcing unique materials from around the world.
Katie creates each piece for Verdante Studio with the intention to connect, support and elevate throughout life’s journey. Her designs emphasize high quality metals, intricate wirework, natural gemstones and energetic intention. Continually evolving, her latest work focuses on silversmithing, wax casting and vibrant enamel creations.
Spirit of Verdante
Verdante Studio creates handcrafted jewelry and mindful craft workshops to empower, cultivate zen and inspire your innate gifts. Through responsible sourcing of high quality materials including gemstones, crystals, silver and gold filled materials, Verdante supports a community of adventurers, wellness seekers and small businesses around the globe.
The name Verdante comes from a rhythmic book of poetry written by a wise woman in my lineage, Mim, called Messages from Verdante. Verdante is a place of self actualization - of dancing with the universe to co-create your best life in the most authentic way possible.
I hope that you find something, tangible or intangible, that speaks to you here - to help manifest your authentic intentions and shine your light in the world!
I believe in soulful products made from carefully selected, high quality materials that are crafted with care and made to last. Every piece is made with intention, and I handpick gemstones that speak to me through their appearance, energetic qualities, and extra spark of something special. My goal is to create pieces that are beautiful, meaningful and resilient.
I love working in gold fill, a higher quality alternative to gold plating. It is easy to wear, friendly to skin, durable and rarely tarnishes. You can flow with it from a sweaty yoga class to the shower and a night out without worries about the color fading over time. I am passionate about designing in gold fill whenever possible for its high quality and accessible price point compared to pure gold.
Verdante Studio pieces are designed to layer and stack and are available in a range of lengths and sizes.
Through the High Vibe Boutique, Verdante Studio cultivates a selection of high vibe artisan + handcrafted goods, featuring resonant female-founded businesses I discover through my work, travels, and communities. Good things are best shared!
