Kreated is a jewellery and accessories company created and run by Kate Drinnan. Each accessory is designed to enable the wearer to express every facet of their personality through design and fashion.
My workspace could best be described as the “House of Stashes.” There are stashes of fabric, piles of cookbooks, a box full of teddies (with various arms, legs & heads missing), displays of finished work, random notes & quotes fallen on the floor, bundles of wool that never quite made it to their intended jumpers, coloured pencils, paper, metal findings, semi precious stones in abundance, as well as drawers and boxes crammed full of nostalgia. All of this is inspired & driven by an affinity and obsession with texture & colour. When exploring my background, it is evident that I have the vocational attention span of a child who, just because they still believe that anything is possible, one day wants to be an Astronaut, then a Ballerina, next a Mud Wrestler & then her best friend’s uncle’s pet cat. I have studied Journalism, Multimedia, worked as a Photographer, worked retail, managed an office and flipped burgers. And I still think I may want to try my hand at the Astronaut thing.
