About Kate Macindoe

 

Kate Macindoe, a Mornington Peninsula silversmith, has spent her life by the beach collecting sea treasures.

Studying Visual Art at Monash University, majoring in Metals and Jewellery, allowed her to learn to transfer her love for nature and the ocean and express this through her pieces. Kate spends a lot of her free time outdoors hiking, snorkelling and free diving searching for new objects to work with and share with other lovers of the sea.

Kate is passionate about caring for the environment and living sustainably. She values the slow hand made process of her work and uses sustainable and ethically sourced stones and materials.

Care Information

When treated with the same care with which it was made your handmade piece should last you a lifetime.

Due to the texture on the surface of most of the pieces, overtime it will tarnish due to heat, water, sweat, hand cream etc. Lots of people don’t mind the appearance of jewellery that is a little tarnished, however if you’re someone who likes your jewellery to be clean and sparkly here are some tips!.

  • Buff the piece with a jewellery polishing cloth.
  • Use ‘Brasso’ or ‘Silvo’ on a soft cloth. This can be bought from supermarkets for about $8 and can be used to clean any jewellery you have.
  • Boil your jewellery in a saucepan with aluminium foil for a few minutes (Works amazingly!!)

Kate also offers free polish and repairs on any of her pieces of jewellery. Email her at info@katemacindoe.com to arrange an appointment at her studio or postage.
