Katie Dean

Meet the Designer : Katie Dean

Born and raised in Michigan, my childhood consisted of lots of arts and crafts, exploring the outdoors, a big loving family and tons of baking — needless to say, my heart still lies in the MidWest. I made the big move to Los Angeles in 2007 to see what the West Coast could offer my young artist self and began working a number of jobs, but none of them were “the one”.

I started to make jewelry and while sporting it when I was out and about, people began stopping me, asking where I had gotten the pieces from. Soon enough, I was selling pieces directly off my body. I rarely could keep & wear a piece for a week before someone purchased it from me. It was at that point, I realized I was happiest making jewelry and people were loving it!

Like a fairy tale (…with lots of hard work), it all fell into place. I took the plunge, quit my jobs and went full force into Katie Dean Jewelry. The company started in 2012 and I’m proud to say, it was the right choice.  Nothing makes me happier than making gorgeous, flirty jewels for you to shamelessly take a #selfie in.

Thanks for stopping by #katiedeanjewelry and visit again soon!!

xoxo, Katie

  • Brittany Seymour || Chief Operating Officer

    I grew up on a farm in Missouri, complete with chickens, horses and dirt roads. In 2008, I moved to LA and completed college with a degree in Business Administration.

    Katie and I had known each other for a number of years, and I saw the success she was having even before she was officially, Katie Dean Jewelry. I remembered that she was doing something with jewelry and said, “I’m going to find Katie Dean and work with her!” Lo and behold, I walked into a coffee shop at that very moment and there was Katie, sitting alone at a table! That’s where our incredible business relationship began and the rest is history!

    Managing the day-to-day operations and assisting my fearless leader in building this magical brand is something I wouldn’t trade for the world!

  • Andrea Kerbuski || Sales Rep, Midwest Regions

    A fellow Michigan native like Katie, I instantly fell in love with her gorgeous jewelry and bonded over our Midwest roots! My background in public relations and personal style blogging gave me a unique combination that’s transitioned well to assisting Katie Dean Jewelry with sales in the Great Lakes area.

    Growing up in Chillicothe, Ohio (try and pronounce that correctly) was a great experience, and I always knew there was more out there than what existed in my immediate surroundings. Working with Katie Dean Jewelry has been part of that "more" that I knew existed. Katie's approach to fashion & creativity is unique and she deeply cares about her customers–actually helping them to feel great about how they look & feel. I've found an incredible product and team to put my creative energy behind to create amazing experiences for our customers at Katie Dean Jewelry through fantastic emails & blogs.
