Earthy Jewelry by Island Cowgirl, Heather Kraty
Heather Kraty is Island Cowgirl. Born in New York, Heather studied handmade jewelry design at the Fashion Institute of Technology in NYC. After graduation, she lived on a catamaran in St. Martin and sold her jewelry on the beach. From there, she studied silver in Mexico, surfed in Hawaii, and learned French in Paris. She returned to the States and lived in Miami, FL, then settled down in Huntington Beach, CA.
Influenced by her years in the Caribbean islands and her home out west, Heather now devotes her days to creating beauty. You can find Heather’s pieces in galleries across the United States. As Heather states, "I find beauty in things that I loved as a child... the sun on my back, the sand in my toes, trees and the stars, the flowers along the garden path, puppy dogs and hearts..."
