About Kate Meraki
Hi, I'm Kate!
I am the founder and proud owner of Kate Meraki. My name is actually Katie, but those closest to me call me Kate. And no...Meraki is not my last name. It's actually a Greek word meaning- putting your love into you work. Which truly represents how Kate Meraki started and my love for what I do. I started making beaded bracelets in high school with my mom, and it was always something I would go back to as a hobby. After I had my first son (and realized I never wanted to leave him), I thought- why not make this hobby I love so much, into a business? And so...Kate Meraki was born. After having my second son, I realized that one can't work from home, while also caring for their children, so I am extremely lucky to have an amazing family and team around me that is able to help me manage these two tiny humans. I love designing and hand crafting beautiful pieces that I get to see other people love and wear, so thank you for being here and making that dream a reality!
All Kate Meraki jewelry is hand made in Sugar Land, Texas. Each piece is hand crafted with high quality beads or chain that will last you for years to come.
