katjadesign *GIVEAWAY*


C L O S E D

It is my pleasure to introduce my fellow Canadian, Katja. She is the talented owner of the Etsy shop called katjadesign. Katja resides in the beautiful and historical province of Quebec, and the items in her shop have the delightful feel and flare of the amazing culture of Quebec.

Katja has been making jewelry for a while, but a few years ago she turned the addictive hobby into a business. She loves creating jewelry with small components and natural materials, such as stone, amber, pearls, shell and whatever else she finds and wants to incorporate.

Katja believes that jewelry has to work, so her pieces need to be wearable and work with the fashion trends, as well as being timeless enough to be loved and worn for a long time. It may sound like a tall order, but that is what Katja expects when she goes shopping for herself, so she applies the same standard to her created things.
You may not be wanting to admit it, but fall is right around the corner. Wouldn't this knit shrug be a perfect addition to your wardrobe this fall?


I asked Katja to tell me about her Etsy shop...

I design jewelry and trendy knits!

How did this become your passion?

I have always made jewelry and have been knitting since my teen years. Over time jewelry and knits have stayed as a permanent passion – after trying many other forms of creative outlets.

Tell me about what is up and coming in your shop...

Black knit lace gloves are my newest addition, together with mohair shrugs with trumpet sleeves.
Natural stone pendants on chain are also new.

Just look at the stunning colours of this pendant!
