Formulated with Freedom.™

 

That’s the secret ingredient in CATALYST J,™ and it enhances your ability to be unapologetically you.

Every CATALYST J™ piece of jewelry is designed to be simple, stunning and unapologetic, then handcrafted in the USA with precious metals and Austrian crystals. 

 

So how did CATALYST J™ come to be?

It started in 2019 when I broke free from the golden handcuffs of the healthcare industry in corporate America.  Feeling burnt out, uncreative, unappreciated and depleted, I was working full time and also going to business school.  One weekend during class, we did a group exercise where we had to define what life and work meant to each of us and after reading aloud my personal definitions, a classmate said, "I have one word for you, FREEDOM. All you want is to be free." And there you have it, in everything I do related to CATALYST J™, freedom is a component because I am finally free to follow my passion for design, working with my hands and creating beautiful products to share with the world.

It took a year of research and development to find the right places to source the materials, perfect the designs and feel comfortable sharing it all with the public. Aside from the beautiful Austrian crystals I use, all other components in  my jewelry come from the USA.

Every CATALYST J™ collection has a featured theme and since everyone has a birthday, it only made sense to launch the Birthstone Collection first with simple yet stunning crystals available for every month of the year.  Next came the Cosmic Collection and the Freedom Special Edition Set.  I have more in the works, too. The hardest part is capturing the beauty and sparkle of the crystals on camera.

When creating my collections, the gift buyer is continuously kept in mind.  Whether it’s for a birthday, Christmas, thank you or sharing a made in the USA gift with someone, CATALYST J™ pieces have a variety of colors, metals and sparkle to make the recipient (especially if it’s a gift to yourself) feel beautiful.

In addition to the current collections, I also specialize in custom bridal jewelry for both brides and bridesmaids.

As my business grows, I hope to partner with like minded business owners who share my passion for freedom to feature my jewelry in their small businesses.

 

And finally...

 

Where did the name CATALYST J™ came from?

It was born out of my love for chemistry (nerd alert) and the inner energy we all have that gives us the confidence to do more than we think we are capable.
