My personal style, much like my decor style, tends toward a more minimal and neutral aesthetic. Think denim all day every day and a palette that consists mostly of black, black and grey (I figure as a natural redhead, I’ve got enough color on top of my head). So it makes sense that I absolutely love the trend of minimal cool-girl jewelry, currently seen in ring stacks across Instagram — and one brand that does it particularly well is Katie Dean Jewelry.
I actually discovered her via this Instagram, and anyone who loves matcha that much is pretty much already good in my book. Plus, I’m really into the California-boho vibes she brings to the minimal jewelry trend.
Katie is originally from Michigan (Midwestern girl shout out!) and moved to Los Angeles to serve her creative side and develop as an artist. She started making jewelry from a closet out of her apartment, and after years of hard work and hustle, Katie Dean Jewelry really took off.
For others who want to work in a creative field or as artists, Katie recommends getting a job (whether full or part time) in your field of interest. “Even if it’s only remotely related to your dream endeavor, I still think it’s important to secure something when you’re still figuring out how to make money in your craft,” she told LA Lady Magazine. “I personally feel that it’s hard to be creative when you’re constantly worried about how to pay rent. And just because you agree to do a job doesn’t mean you are stuck there forever, learn the from your mistakes while still earning a paycheck!”
I really love her perfectly stackable rings, especially the gold evil eye ring. You can shop her designs directly via her website, or through major sites like Amazon and Forever 21. (Um, get it, girl.)
Here are some of my favorite Katie Dean Jewelry looks (it helps that I also just love the space she shoots in and it’s total #decorgoals):
What do you think? Are you a fan of Katie’s boho-minimal jewelry?
