My name is Kait, and Veridian Silver Co. is my passion project. In early 2019, I enrolled in a metalsmithing class at Pittsburgh Center for Arts & Media and quickly fell in love. Every step of the process is a puzzle, which has taught me to be patient, slow down, and stay present. Also, there's something oddly therapeutic about working with fire!
All of my work is 100% handmade in my Pittsburgh, PA home studio with .925 sterling silver, ethically sourced & intuitively chosen gemstones (with a heavy emphasis on American turquoise), love, and intention. Every piece is totally unique and charming in its own way, and nothing brings me more joy than sharing my art with friends all over the world!
For now, I'm focused on building local relationships and meeting other artists and small business owners. I love to participate in local markets, festivals, pop-ups, and other events. That being said, I do not have an online store and prefer to operate as an "events-only" business at this time.
A little bit about me: I'm passionate about Thai food, cold brew, true crime, comfy loungewear, Halloween, crystals, fall foliage, and exploring outdoors. When I'm not working my 9-5 job or making jewelry in my studio, you can find me taking a walk in the woods with my husband, tending to my 60+ house plants, or snuggling up at home with a fluffy blanket, a good documentary, and vanilla + pine essential oils in my diffuser. I'm an enneagram 4w5 and a triple Capricorn, and if you know me, that makes A LOT of sense. :)
If you have any questions for me or just want to say "hi," feel free to connect with me via email, my contact form, or slide into my DMs on Instagram (@veridiansilverco). Thanks so much for stopping by my little corner of the internet!
