A STRIKING BALANCE OF FORM AND INTERPRETATION.
Ekcelent and Co take inspiration from nature, from modern life, from strong women and creates whimsical jewellery for women who tell their own stories.
Ekcelent and Co use stainless steel to create impactful and wearable jewellery.
Our mission is to create jewellery that contributes to the stories women tell through their style.
With creativity bursting out, a connection in a class and a focus on the customer, Ekcelent and Co came to life. Kate and her friend Trent were inspired to start the business to provide design solutions for the amazing women in their life. Kate's journey through the worlds of design and marketing have helped build an understanding of design and what women want.
Kate studied fashion design and worked as a footwear designer before moving into marketing. Her design philosophy is tied to women expressing themselves through fashion and their style.
While working in marketing Kate has continued to sketch, draw and design shapes, patterns, motifs and entire outfits. She sees fashion as a communicator, as armour, as fun, as powerful.
As the designer and creative director of Ekcelent and Co Kate designs all the jewellery while also constructing the pieces ready for shipping to their new homes.
All Ekcelent and Co jewellery is made in Queensland. The steel is etched on the Gold Coast, and the jewellery is built and packed in Brisbane.
