Once upon a time, there was a loving mom raising four little munchkins in Frisco. The Texas-bred beauty’s name was Catherine Page.
As hard as she tried, her kids’ paintings and puzzles couldn’t fill her creative itch. So one day she decided to try her own project: jewelry.
The art history guru had been collecting trinkets for years — Chanel charms, cloisonné beads, Asian enamels, Israeli olive wood. She combined them by hand with gemstones and metal chains and ended up with costume styles reminiscent of her ’70s childhood.
The final result? A groovy collection of droopy earrings, draping necklaces, fringy gold bracelets, and wood-accented accessories. Just like Page, the affordable pieces had a timeless, luxe, hippie look.
It was crystal clear that the budding designer’s story had just begun.
(Until her next chapter, anyway.)
