Designer/owner Kathy Messick is returning to the Golden Globes Gift Lounge after a successful appearance there in 2012, when her handcrafted jewelry designs caught the eye of Natasha Henstridge and Shailene Woodley and were featured in “LA’s The Place” magazine.
“For me, 2012 was all about the statement necklace. This year I’m putting the focus on my new Glitz & Glamour Collection, which I launched this fall," said Messick. “These are bold bracelets and earrings with a playful vibe. Czech glass beads add sparkle and shape-holding Memory Wire permits a cuff-like bracelet that retains a lightweight look and feel. These are easy to wear pieces that will add pizzazz to any outfit. In a nod to the men, I’m also showcasing a toned-down wrap-style unisex bracelet.”
Messick creates her unique jewelry pieces using wire-wrapping and wire knitting. She enjoys working with a variety of materials, including copper wire, semi-precious gemstones, Czech glass and Swarovski Crystals. Her designs evolve organically from the inspiration she finds in nature as well as the colors and textures of favorite beads and textiles.
“The Glitz & Glamour Collection is all about easy to wear pieces that add pizzazz to any outfit.”
Messick's best-selling designs are her wire-knitted floral pendants on re-purposed tee shirt necklace strands, which she describes as “statement pieces, on a smaller scale.”
Messick founded Kath’s Elegant Accessories in 2010 and has since gained an avid following of customers, many of which are professional women in their 20s to 40s who enjoy adding a unique jewelry design element to a casual or career outfit.
Messick’s work has won several first place awards in bead competitions. Her design “Flower Fantasy,” won First Place in the Fall 2010 Bead Challenges, sponsored by Off The Beading Path (http://www.offthebeadingpath.biz) and was the prototype for the “Flower Fantasy- Denise” necklace that drew so much attention at the 2012 Golden Globes.
Messick supports the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network (http://www.pancan.org) and donates a portion of every sale in honor of her late mother and brother. She has also participated in their Advocacy Days in Washington, D.C. for the last three years.
