Inspired by Modernist design of the mid-20th Century, designer Kyla Katz brings strength and energy to her work through the use of clean lines and definitive shapes. Her work finds beauty in the language of pure geometry.
Kyla handcrafts all her work in her Chicago studio using 100% recycled sterling silver. She uses traditional metalsmithing techniques to create the brand’s very contemporary designs.
I approach jewelry design as an art form. Each piece I create is a small sculpture intended to be worn in intimate conversation with the body. My design process is improvisational; the shape emerges from the metal as I make it. The lines, angles and textures of the work embody unconscious elements and bring them into form.
