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....

Hermès at Work: My Experience

On Sunday, September 25th, I was able to catch the last day of the travelling "Hermès at Work" exhibition at the Jack Pool Plaza in Coal Harbour Vancouver. The event, which allows the skilled craftspeople that have made this brand endure for over a century, gave me a chance to interact with some of these individuals and witness their elaborate methods of creation. "Hermès at Work" fulfilled all of my expectations and then some. It was so refreshing to see the extraordinary attention to detail involved in the creation of each and every piece. It became obvious to me very quickly that this brand has been...
