How often do you see someone turn the desire to fix a personal piece into a passion and a business? That's how it happened for Kat Allison of Elementals Austin, a local jewelry brand with a beautifully versatile design aesthetic. Kat's goal is to make necklaces and earrings that can be worn anywhere, anytime. She plans out each piece with the outfits in mind that you might accessorize. With the classic simplicity of her pieces, you can easily dress them up or down. Appropriate for any occasion or age, Elementals jewelry feature gemstones coordinated by color. When you see Kat at local art markets and pop-ups, she usually has her selection arranged by shade which really pops! My eyes go straight to her trays of greens and turquoises, but she has choices for everyone. She says she's always loved collecting rocks, and you can tell her appreciation for the beauty to be found in stones of all types, especially those that sparkle. If you'd like to know more about each bead, she can tell you why she chose them and share all of the other designs she offers in that color. I love how she has some designs in her collection that she repeats in all colors so you really can have the one that suits you best. Of course, she's always testing out new ideas, and it's fun to check them out in person at the various markets she participates in. Kat is passionate about the art culture that makes Austin unique, and I'm glad we have active artisans like her to keep us beautifully adorned.
