Handmade Jewerly!

Hey girls!

I have got to share this fabulous website with you! I'm obsessed, this handmade jewelry is so fabulous, and made right in the heart of New York City!

Katie Bartels Handmade Jewelry consists of all handmade jewelry, which i'll be adding to my collection VERY soon!
All of the pieces are so pretty, and will go with anything!

Founder, Katie Bartels love for jewelry began when she was just 18 months old in Connecticut At that time, she started wearing a plastic pearl necklace everywhere!

Bartels graduated from Cornell University, which is also where she began a very successful career! In the summer of 2007, while browsing through Barneys, Katie was approached by another stylish customer and asked about her colorful chalcedony, cubic zirconia, and rock crystal quartz necklace. After learning that Bartels' designed and constructed the necklace, the customer asked where she could purchase her designs. At the time, Katie only designed jewelry for herself, but a light bulb went off in Katie’s head and she decided to start selling her designs.

Yellow Socks LLC was incorporated in the fall of 2007. Katie named her Company after her late grandfather’s signature sock color. Her designs began selling in three Fairfield County, CT, boutiques. Two years later, Katie left her job at a New York City law firm to pursue her passion for jewelry design full-time. In the summer of 2010, Katie received a Graduate Gemology degree from the Gemological Institute of America. She now creates her one-of-a-kind pieces in her Manhattan studio.

What a story, and such a successful person!
