Located in South Florida, Katia Designs is owned by Catherine "Katia" Rudnick. Katia Designs is a collection of spiritual jewelry that speaks to the heart and brightens the day. Each piece of jewelry features an empowering message, as well as other components, such as gemstones, crystals, and more.
The journey to the brand was not a traditional one. Not being much of a jewelry wearer herself, Katia was surprised when a medallion bracelet worn by a fellow yogi caught her eye. The immediate draw to the boldness of the piece caught her off guard but she took it as a sign that this strong attraction should not be ignored, but followed. It was more than just the design of the bracelet that inspired Katia; it was her desire to recreate the same feeling for others. Jewelry had never been more than just jewelry, but in that moment it became so much more. It became a feeling. The same day, she drove to a local art school and signed up for a metal clay class. It was in this studio that she created the first prototypes for her medallions and the journey to Katia Designs began.
Many of the messages you see featured in Katia Designs are derived from how Katia chooses to live her life and how she hopes to inspire others to live their lives as well.
In 2022, Katia Designs earned a US patent for the necklace system that allows you to wear one necklace many different ways.
