Secret Emporium


Kate Gilliland is the jewellery designer who makes all the slightly weird but lovable curiosities on this site. She works for a shared workshop, in Birmingham's historic jewellery quarter. Adventure and intrigue capture Kate’s imagination. There is a child like fascination to her delicate jewellery, it evokes questions and illuminates your curiosity, conjuring fantastical tales. The found and treasured dead animals she uses in her jewellery are given a new life by preserving this little piece of history for the future. Through the process of casting and using precious metals, Kate encourages you to see the tiny detail and beauty in these little animals.
