Betsy Yates is one of our most popular designers, launching her full-time jewelry-making gig officially in early 2013, she previously worked at Redux while learning the retail ropes. She is a metalworking force to be reckoned with, a hyper-creative and prolific designer with many original ideas on how to mix metals and gems in truly unique ways without losing the simplicity inherent in a piece. Her work incorporates iconography and themes from her travels and is influenced by sacred geometry, ethnic pattern and organic and natural forms & colors found in nature.
in her words:
“My dad has always told me that one of the keys to happiness is to find something you love so much that it doesn’t feel like a job. So here I am, happy to say that I am doing what I love and lucky to call it ‘work.’ ▼”
