I’ve been stopped three times this week with people asking me where my favourite necklace is from. I proudly tell everyone who asks because of any piece I own, this is the most special.
My Uberkate necklace is my version of a tattoo. It’s beautifully made personalized jewellery that has a very special meaning. Mine is a necklace with 5 large Ubercircles that hang lower on my neck (because I’m not a delicate person so chunky jewellery suits better). Each Ubercircle has the names of my 4 children and my hubby engraved on it with each of their birthdates engraved on the backside of the Ubercircle.
I first heard about UberKate when one of my besties ordered three pieces with her three sons names engraved on them. One of her beautiful little boys, Samuel, was stillborn and she wanted a way to have him in her memory and close to her heart always alongside the names of his big brothers. It was beautiful and I completely copied her with her blessing (I have great friends who don’t ever worry about the ‘copy’ factor, PHEW)
Since I purchased my UberKate, I’ve seen their pieces everywhere. The quality of the pieces is worth every cent and they last, I wear min everywhere and barely a scratch to be seen on any of the Ubercircles. They’re gaining so much popularity and being the huge enormous supporter of small business that I am, the owner Kate Sutton needs a round of applause and a big congrats on creating something that’s more unique than Pandora and more personalized than a simple engraving on a silver mug.
A bit about Kate Sutton the designer:
A love of jewellery design, inspired Kate Sutton to turn her dream into a reality by establishing UberKate, a jewellery design studio, based in Sydney, Australia.
Originally a television producer, Sutton realised her talents lay with jewellery design when she created her signature piece “The Ubercircle” to keep her family close to her heart while she was traveling.
The striking Ubercircles did not go unnoticed and Kate soon found she was busy creating jewellery for friends who admired her work.
In 2004 she launched her company, UberKate, when demand for her signature piece, the Ubercircle, swelled into a niche market. Since then, UberKate has developed organically from Sutton’s sustained passion for jewellery design, a constant in her life since she began fashioning bracelets and necklaces as a child.
Sutton’s work has since attracted a cult following and her designs are regularly worn by Australian media personalities including Monique Wright, Georgie Gardner, Sarah Murdoch, Jessica Rich, Joanna Townsend, Rebecca Harris, Leila McKinnon, Natalie Barr and Melissa Doyle.
Kate’s philosophy is founded on connecting people and her personalised made-to order designs are born out of her own desire to wear jewellery ‘that means something’.
Kate is 37 and lives in Sydney with her husband Adam, eight year-old daughter Lulu and three year old son Cameron.
All I can say is well done to Kate, bravo, what a fabulous business and idea. If you want to check out UberKate for yourself please click HERE
