Negar Khatami Katami Designs
Region: Vancouver Coast & Mountains
Katami Designs is a fusion of heirloom inspired jewellery with a distinct modern edge.
Designer Negar Khatami channels her Iranian roots, love of history and a West Coast aesthetic, into a global collection of jewellery for everyday wear.
Inspired by a rich historical context and an ancestral vision, Negar Khatami begins with ancient iconographies and recreates them into exquisite jewellery that celebrates modern life.
The collection takes inspiration from all parts of nature and was inspired by a crooked tree branch that Negar found in Stanley Park. Each piece has a fresh and modern edge while preserving the original inspirations.
She prefers to work with high karat gold, sterling silver, precious and semi-precious stones. Additionally, she works to coordinate a number of techniques, mediums and methods such as lost wax carving and textured metals.
