What motivated or inspired you to start Katie Dean Jewelry?
I was working a full time job as a styling assistant and it was a great gig but after a few years I knew it wasn’t what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. I’m a strong believer that you should do something you love. You have to have passion when you’re spending the majority of your life focusing on a purpose.
I had always loved working with my hands, creating new things so I started doing my own craft projects and jewelry was one of them. It took off organically in the beginning which is always a good sign. I was wearing my jewelry out and about and my friends bought it right off me after they found out I had made it!
What do you love most about your work?
I love that I’m constantly using my creativity to design new pieces and that my days are never the same!
Your big 3-0 birthday just passed 🎉, what is one piece of advice you would give to your 18-year-old self?
I actually just wrote a blogpost on this! The last point that I wrote about is my favorite because it applies to your entire life. You can read the full post here after you read this article!
"ENJOY IT ALL. Take joy in the little things, the big things and the things in between. This kind of goes hand in hand with #1 above but it’s taking it a step further. I always like to refer to one of my favorite movies, ‘About Time’ when I thinking of enjoying all the aspects of life – the good, bad and ugly. It’s all a part of the process and what matters most is how you take it all in and use it to continue creating the future you want."
At 9am each day, you are:
Getting done with my morning workout, grabbing a coffee and about to get on email! Working out is SO important for me. It keeps my energy high throughout the week and overall just makes me feel really good.
You decompress each day by:
Usually by reading a chapter from whatever novel I’m mid. I love books. It get’s my imagination going and that time is special to me.
What is your favorite quote?
Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity. - Seneca the Younger
What’s your favorite 90’s jam?
Oh man! This is a tough one but I’d say any of the hits by N’Sync. Couldn’t get enough of them, haha!
