My name is Kait, and Veridian Silver Co. is my passion project. In early 2019, I enrolled in a metalsmithing class at Pittsburgh Center for Arts & Media and the rest is history! The process of creating something beautiful from scraps of silver and stone is a puzzle that has taught me to be patient, slow down, and stay present. Also, there's something oddly therapeutic about working with fire!
I create all of my work by hand in my tiny, shoebox-sized Pittsburgh, PA home studio with .925 sterling silver, ethically sourced & intuitively chosen gemstones (with a heavy emphasis on American turquoise), love, and intention.
If you came here looking for an online shop, I am sorry to disappoint! For now, I'm focused on building local relationships and meeting other artists and small business owners. I love to participate in local markets, festivals, pop-ups, and other events and do not have plans to open an online store. I prefer to operate as an "events-only" kind of business at this time.
A little bit about me: I'm passionate about Thai food, cold brew, true crime, comfy loungewear, Halloween, fall foliage, and exploring outdoors. When I'm not working my 9-5 job or making jewelry in my studio, you can find me taking a walk in the woods with my husband, tending to my 60+ house plants, trying craft beers at a local brewery, or snuggling up at home with a fluffy blanket, a good documentary, and vanilla + pine essential oils in my diffuser. I'm an enneagram 4w5 and a triple Capricorn, and if you know me, that makes A LOT of sense. :)
If you have any questions for me or just want to say "hi," feel free to connect with me via email, my contact form, Facebook, or slide into my DMs on Instagram (@veridiansilverco). Thanks so much for stopping by my little corner of the internet!
