Refurbish and Refresh!

During the month of January we decided to try something a little bit different at Katami Designs. We wanted to give people the opportunity to re-design their heirloom jewelry in order to keep it relevant to their own personal style, as well as today's fashion trends. Those interested could meet with Negar Khatami for a free custom jewellery consultation to help them transform their sentimental, old-fashioned jewellery into contemporary and unique pieces. I must say, we currently have  some truly one-of-a-kind pieces in the making! Here is a little sneak peak of a finished piece we re-designed for Vancouver personal stylist, Michelle Addison....

As it's getting closer to Mother's Day, I am seeing a lot of rush in, last minute shopping in my gallery. I giggle a little bit as I see clients coming in in a panic mode, because I know I will have a unique gift for them and there is no need to panic. So, I thought I should put a little list of what I think makes a great Mother's Day gift & creates the search a little bit easier for you.  First off,  the obvious one, I'd start with a few jewellery from my gallery.  Pearl Blossom Ring...
