Artist - Kat Monien

Kat Monien is the designer and creator at Ruru Jewellery. Mostly self taught, she works out of her backyard workshop in Wellington.
Kat has always had an interest in art and craft but in the last few years this has developed into a strong passion for making jewellery. She enjoys the creative process of transforming simple metal into beautiful and fun pieces.
Her work is inspired by nature and often features the ancient ginkgo leaf with its distinct texture and unique shape. This contrasts with her love for geometric forms and clear lines as demonstrated in her faceted pieces.
