In 2004, I opened Catbird as an ever-changing shop of my favorite things. I found a cheap, busted storefront on a not-so-pretty street in Williamsburg and had family and friends help me build it out. I sold some clothes, elbow patches, iron-ons and pretty ribbons. I also carried jewelry that I either made while sitting in my very quiet store, or got from jewelers vastly more talented than me. (That’s how I first met Bittersweets, Yayoi Forest, Digby & Iona, Meredith Kahn, and others who we still carry today.)
I realized that I loved everything about jewelry. Selecting it, displaying it, helping customers find special pieces – it was a joy-filled process.
In 2006, I opened the store on Bedford Avenue, focused solely on jewelry and started the Catbird line with one of my sales associates making pieces in her kitchen.
These days I come to work every morning and am surrounded by over 50 of the most whip-smart, funny, kind and creative people that make up what Catbird is now. We have a jewelry studio where we create pieces that still make my heart race with excitement. Our kind and lovely customer service team and store staff are solely devoted to helping you on your quest – whether it is a stacking ring, a wedding ring, or a small gift. Confession: we sometimes cry at the good news we get to be a part of.
