Katey launched her jewelry design company, K. Brunini Jewels, in 1998. Her creations pay homage to Nature’s spontaneous wit and organic aesthetic. Based in San Diego, Katey is known for traveling the world to seek both artistic and ethereal inspiration when creating each of her collections. Her collections are made of lasting and beautiful materials—precious metals of platinum, gold and sterling silver. She mixes these with diamonds, pearls and rare gems then incorporates unique elements of wood, bone and antlers to create a raw and refined harmony.
