Catz-Kato's Vacation

This is us. The Catz-Kato Family in Downtown Chicago, at the Millenium Park. We decided to visit Chicago again for the fourth time. I love this city! So much to see, shop and enjoy. We rode rides at the Navy Pier and learned of the History of the Pirates and the Egyptians at the Field Museum. What an exciting and trendy place! And for the good news, before our trip I received the call from the doctor regarding the nodule on my throat and the results are BENIGN. We had a wonderful vacation.

Activate Your Faith!

Hi, I wanted to share this with you today to give you the heads up on the Catz-Kato designer. I hope it serves as an incentive to boost up your faith. I had a biopsy done yesterday on my throat. The Endocronologist found a nodule on my throat. He inserted four needles to extract a sample of it and it was quite scary. How often do we have a needle inserted in our throats? I have to wait almost two weeks to receive the results of cancer or no cancer. But I can honestly say that I find peace within because I have the greatest healer of all healers. Jesus Christ! If you can imagine yourselves in my position, who would you turn to? I hope you will never have to experience such a thing and I hope the best health for all of you. God Bless you and take care. Cat.

Chipboard Crafts

I am so excited! I added some craft products on my bead shop as additions to the shop and I sold my first two chipboard craft Alphabet Letters. These are great for children and scrapbookers. I gave some to my daughters and they enjoyed creating cards and scenic pictures. I also have a variety of tags for gifts and cards. These are great for summer afternoon activities with the kids.

What Inspires Me?

I love grass and blooming trees. I love the smell of rain and the morning mist. I love to see the sunrise and the moon set itself aside for the arising of the new day. I love nature and everything that resembles life. I love to run on wet sand beside the roaring waves. Nature is my inspiration, foilage, flowers and trees. Designing to me is an expression of an inspiration. Cat.

Wire Wrapping Technique

The Wire Wrapping Technique is one of my favorite techniques. Many of my designs are wire wrapped. It is the art of wrapping beads with jewelry wire and linking them onto other beads or onto to components. This bracelet is a link bracelet. I wire wrapped each bead and connected them to each other. I used an antique gunmetal flexible metal jewelry wire with a 24mm guage to wrap this bracelet. The beads I used in this design are vintage lucite beads from the 1960's and many of my designs are created with these type of beads. To view many of my link bracelets, visit me at Thanks. Cat.

Good Morning "Good Friday"

All for Love!

Catz-Kato Designs is a Christian Faith based Company. Our dependency is on God and on His wonderful Son, Jesus Christ. God heard my prayers when I decided to stay home to care for our children, and I had the desire to work at home as well. I nocked on His door and asked for a career and He used my design abilities to design and create handcrafted jewelry. From what started as a hobby, has now grown into a business. Good Friday to me is a day to reflect on the undying love that Jesus has for me. On a day like today, He died on a cross in Calvary; He gave me saving Grace and washed away my sins, therefore I rejoice today!

Lovingly, Cat
