Katy Valentine Collections was born out of a love for India. Inspired by katy's first trip, we bring you a collection of unique pieces handcrafted from a fusion of African and Indian elements. Antique trade beads from West Africa and gemstones from Jaipur are complimented by simple lines and translated into brass and sterling silver, with gold plated finishes.
Katy has always had an eye for detail and organic design. Growing up in a home where both parents were artefact traders, collectors and avid adventures, stood her in good stead as she pursued her passion for jewellery design. Katy formalised her passion at a boutique art college in Cape Town, after which she spent a year working in her family business, Amatuli Artifacts, learning the vital skills of buying and sourcing.
The Katy Valentine Collection stems from a mixture of Katy’s African heritage and the colors of India, resulting in unique pieces, which can be worn everyday. Each ring, necklace, bracelet or set of earrings tells a story about the blending together of diverse cultures and makers.
