One of the more exciting parts of my job at Interiors by Jacquin is having the opportunity to meet so many talented artists and designers. My recent studio visit at the home of artist Kat Cole has not only re-invigorated me, but also inspired me to bring you more behind the scenes artist interviews.
You will love the work of Kat Cole. She is a fine art jewelry designer and metalsmith creating work that uniquely mirrors the built environment. You will notice inspiration from industrial surroundings blended with Cole’s colorful aesthetic.

Kat Cole’s stunning broaches were my favorite! I loved the originality, colors, and movement of the metal. (Above: ‘Urban Color #1’ broach, steel, enamel, 2017. Kat Cole.)
