"A woman wears jewelry that is of her choosing, that is an expression of herself. Once chosen, it is no longer the designer’s, but her own.”
Meet Kate Hines:
Kate Hines is a jewelry designer that combines modern and classic and creates art you can wear. Each piece is an elegant addition to any outfit. Pearl Puddles is one of her brands and the collection includes freshwater pearls, that make unique authentic jewelry any woman would love to wear. A graduate of the renowned Rhode Island School of Design, Kate Hines has designed exquisite, quality jewelry for many decades. As a long-standing designer of private-label jewelry, Hines has built a passionate and loyal following of women seeking jewelry that reflects and enhances who they are – or want to become. Her designs have been showcased in cutting-edge boutiques from Madison Avenue to Rodeo Drive, as well as in fashion-forward retailers such as Saks Fifth Avenue, Barneys, and Nordstrom. Today, Hine’s passion and focus is the enduring beauty of pearls: "Pearls are light solidified. They inspire and illuminate. Each pearl is different. Softer than jewels, they glow against your skin. They should be worn everyday, whether you’re wearing your t-shirt … or your tiara.”
