Catie Raymond is our Guest Speaker!

catie raymondThe Designer Catie Raymond is a true original. An expert at breaking conventions, the Coldwater based artist brings new life to vintage pieces that she collects at antique shows across North America.

Combining semi-precious stones, fire-polished crystal, and high quality hypoallergenic sterling silver with eclectic vintage finds like watch parts and one of a kind charms, Catie breaths new life into esoteric trinkets that might otherwise be forgotten. Like the dragonfly that is her signature, Catie changes direction on a whim, uses a variety of colour, and has incredible vision.

“What makes Catie Raymond unique in the world of art is her ability to combine graphic art, floral design, salvage/garden art, plus jewelry making.” - Suzy Burtenshaw, Chair of the Coldwater. Steampunk Art Festival.
