Cat Sat Designs offers unique, truly, one of a kind
jewelry. All jewelry is hand crafted, and individually designed
by Cat Sautter. No two pieces are the same or duplicated. Mass
production, including the utilization of molds and dies for the
purpose of creating many is just not acceptable. All casting is
completely freeform. Each piece is truly unique.
Although I officially established Cat Sat Designs
in 2002, I have been fabricating jewelry for many years. I took
beginning and advance jewelry courses in college, and loved the
various facets of metal smithing, enameling, and bead making. However
I toiled away the years playing out another career all while creating
jewelry a bit here and there. It simply took the right time in
my life to get serious with my art; the right time and a nice hard
push from my husband that is. Bless that man!
Response to my art has been overwhelmingly positive.
The mere appreciation for my work is an inspiration. It is such
an uplift meeting people who know and value hand crafted metal
I have been asked many times to define “my” style.
This has always been a hiccup for me. I like to respond with the
generic term “unique.” If and when pushed into a corner
I feel the term “organic” may be best. I have a love
of nature especially the interaction of curves and dissecting lines.
Rigidity is not my thing. Classic Art Deco and Art Nouveau schools
of art are my main love and I believe you will see this in my art.
My personality is also reflected in my work and attitude
towards it. I love to be that person that doesn’t fit into
a mold. I hold strongly the belief that whether it is jewelry,
clothing, or simply your attitude, as long as it is fresh, fun,
and not harmful, you should always embrace and show your individuality.
