Hello! I'm Kittie, the Owner & Artist of Studio Kittie.
I am an Intuitive Metalsmith with Viking roots, creating jewelry designed to Awaken Your Natural Wisdom.
I share the power and transformative nature of the Elder Futhark Runes through the art of Runesmithing -- the act of carving or casting runes into crystals and precious metals. My purpose is to imbue these objects with natural energy and ancient wisdom, so they may awaken what is best and brightest in the person who bears them.
I also offer Runic Divination readings using the Elder Futhark runes, which contain complex symbolic meaning and offer insight into specific questions or the general flow of life. Each rune embodies centuries of communal history, communication, and personal empowerment... I use the runes to tap into this wisdom and bring you greater clarity where you need it most.
I was actually born an artist with a deep connection to the natural world. Some of my earliest memories involve art projects and, as a child, I spent nearly all my free time outside exploring my oak forest backyard and imagining myself as a deer or a squirrel.
I studied the arts in high school (sculpture, music, dance), then went on to earn my B.A. in Literature & Film Studies while working as a fused glass artist and jewelry designer. And yet after graduation, I ended up working for seven years as a Web and SysAdmin in the San Francisco Bay Area.
In the process of discovering how to walk the tightrope between the modern world and my nature-oriented personality, I reconnected to my love of art and creation. I also began to dive deep into my Scandinavian ancestry and heritage.
It took a few years, but I eventually combined all the things I love and I'm good at into Studio Kittie.
I believe with all my heart that there is a deep magic which dwells in each of us. When we tap into it, we become able to shape the life of our dreams. But because we are individually powerful creators, we must discover for ourselves the unique balance that exists between our inner wisdom and the modern world around us.
I created Studio Kittie so I could help you awaken, support, and empower your natural wisdom so you can step into your power as a conscious creator of your dreams.
