Freedom Clothing Collective is dedicated to celebrating independent Canadian design. With dozens of makers in stock we thought it was best for you to get to know them a bit better! Every other week we'll be profiling a different designer on our blog so you can know a little bit more of the who, what, where and why of Canadian style.
You may recognize Kathryn Rebecca as one of the women who works at Freedom but her work also adorns the shelves as well! Katie (as we know her) makes some of the most exquisite pieces we have in the shop. She works with gold, sterling silver and semi precious stones. The cuts and colours she uses are undoubtedly classic but there's always a thoughtful forward thinking quality to them. She was just recently at the One-Of-A-Kind show but she's at Freedom Clothing Collective all year! Follow her on twitter here and instagram here.
1. When did you first start making jewellery? What got you interested?
As a young girl I always had an interest in creating anything I could wear with my hands. I also had an interest in polishing coins to look shiny and brand new .;). As I became a teen I channeled that energy into creating beaded pieces. When it was time to choose what to apply for post secondary I looked at what I enjoyed doing in my spare time and thought jewellery school might be a good idea.
