Clouds and Ladders jewelry is designed and handmade by Kate Joseph in her studio in a redwood forest north of San Francisco. Kate has a background in painting and sculpture but chose to pursue a career as an occupational therapist with jewelry design as a hobby. However, fate had a different plan - an employee of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art spotted her jewelry at a handcrafted goods market in San Francisco in 2018. Soon after the museum’s store started carrying her work, Kate began to concentrate on Clouds and Ladders full time. Since then, she has hired two production assistants so she can remain more focused on designing. Her designs are distinctive, versatile, and lightweight - and each is a tiny work of art you can wear.
