Kate is the creative designer and maker behind Biome Jewellery Design. Kate is a self-taught bead weaver who started making and selling jewellery at the tender age of 5 and her love for creating beautiful things has followed her as a passion throughout her life.

Kate’s career in and love for nature and biodiversity was the inspiration behind the brand’s name “Biome”, which means a “community of plants and animals that have common characteristics for the environment they exist in”. Each piece of jewellery is handmade and inspired by a different biome: forests, coral reefs, deserts, mountains, fynbos and even outer space.

Biome’s jewellery is made from tiny glass beads that are made with precision and in an eclectic range of colours, woven together with threads to create tiny works of wearable art.
