How do I begin to share my venture as a Jewelry Designer? Well it all began with a change in my life from working in a corporate setting and giving up a full time schedule and salary to staying home to care for my first baby girl. A dramatic change took place from wearing dress suits and heels to casuals and jogging pants. I began designing jewelry on my kitchen table. My first designs were simple stringed necklaces that I gave as gifts. Surprisingly, I received so many compliments on those simple designs. After having our second baby girl and happily enjoying jewelry design, Catilla was formed in 2007. Since then, I’ve sold many pieces at local festivals, at the Miami Design district in downtown Miami and on Etsy. www.catilla.etsy.com
Because I am so health conscience, I spend countless hours searching for non toxic materials and non allergic metals to use in my designs. All of my beads and stones are carefully chosen so that you receive a fine quality piece of jewelry. I also spend many hours working on my photography and website design to make sure that you have a pleasant and good experience at my store.
Lovingly, Cat Padilla
