When planning for a fun day at the park with children, the lunch pack is a must essential. I packed the sandwiches and goodies for in between playtime and filled up the water bottle to the rim. My lovely girls packed their own personal bags and added the kite and soon were on their way to an adventure. As I reviewed all of the packed items, I could not forget my own personal item that accompanies me wherever I go. My Canon Rebel Camera! I love the sound of that name because I too can be a rebel sometimes when it comes to shooting pictures. Although I do not consider myself a professional photographer, I have been told that I can catch a glimpse of lovelies through my lens. I enjoy the outdoors and even though it was just a day at the park, I considered it an opportunity to capture the awesomeness of nature around us. Lovely flowers and foliage hold a special place in my heart and I often use them in my handcrafted jewelry designs. But today I was not designing and on this awesome day I caught sight of these lovely new blooms. They may be amateur shots but to me, it is beauty.
PHOTOGRAPHY BY CAT PADILLA
Hi, I am Cat Padilla, Jewelry Designer of Catz-Kato Designs. Catz-Kato Designs is my Jewelry Design Business where I get to express my love for fashion and nature. My inspiration comes from nature and earthy objects such as earth’s foliage, flowers, branches, twigs, trees, and even birds. Catz-Kato originated in Miami, Florida and the name takes after our nicknames when growing up. My family always called me Cat and my husband is Kato.
I lived my childhood in New York up until I turned 26. I have always had a passion and desire to design. The fashion industry always called out to me. I remember when I worked in the Central Park area, how I always dressed to impress and carefully chose my clothes with a fashionable style. I would shop anywhere and at anytime. New York has the best shops! At the age of 26 I re-located to Miami, Florida. My opportunity to stay at home with my children gave me time to reflect on what I really wanted to accomplish and evolved me to express myself through designing. I now have several years in jewelry design and prior to designing jewelry I experimented with clothing design and t-shirt beading.
I specialize in creating timeless jewelry pieces that are warm, casual and classy. Every piece I design is carefully thought of and is designed with my best workmanship.
I am continually on the hunt for new and intriguing elements to use in my designs. I work most of my sales on the web and through personal relationships. Many of my pieces, I have sold on Etsy.com, Erayo.com, West Elm Miami Store, Office Buildings and Festivals throughout Miami.
“I love what I do and I do it with much enthusiasm!”
