Kate Dannenberg is a jeweler and metalsmith living in South Philadelphia. With thoughtful craftsmanship and attention to tactile experience, she creates jewelry and objects informed by the visual qualities of the natural world. She is interested in the way we physically interact with precious and everyday objects—the way these interactions affect both the person and the object. The form and texture of her work is intended to entice the viewer into wanting to touch, hold, and feel the piece in their hands, simply looking shouldn’t be enough. Through her work as teaching artist and curator she strives to uplift the jewelry and craft communities through inclusion, education, and enthusiasm.
