List of products by designer Cat Bates

My name is Cat Bates.

I spent my early childhood, and summers through grade school, on Monhegan Island off of the Maine coast.  I remain strongly influenced by the island's nautical history, rugged landscape, and the resourcefulness and hard work that one needs to live there year-round.  For an extended biography, please click here.

14 years ago I began studying metalsmithing.  I started working as a professional jeweler in 2004, and graduated from Maine College of Art in 2009 with a BFA in Metalsmithing and Jewelry Design. I have received scholarships to study at Penland School of Crafts, Peters Valley, and Haystack Mountain School of Crafts, and have taught workshops on basic metalsmithing, sand casting, and decorative sailor knotting.  In 2012 I produced my first line of production jewelry, under the title Barbarian Enterprises.  Much of my inventory is still stamped ‘B.E.’.  For a resume, please click here.
