Katy Briscoe began her career in the jewelry industry in 1980 working part-time for a Fort Worth mom-and-pop shop while studying at Texas Christian University for a Bachelor’s of Fine Arts degree in advertising illustration and design. For several years following, Katy worked in the jewelry department of a major department store and then entered the world of high-dollar jewelry sales upon being hired by the internationally renowned Fred Joaillier of Paris. With her love and extensive knowledge of the industry, she became one of Fred’s top-producers and was groomed for an assistant directorship -- the youngest and only female in that position at the time.
After her success at Fred, Katy was approached by a representative of David Webb of New York in 1985, where she furthered her knowledge of fine jewelry and gained insight into the preferences of the world's wealthiest clients. Five years later Katy realized that she really wanted to create her own designs and left to establish her first home-based atelier called “Chinati the Jeweler”.
To her fine jewelry clients, Katy has been known for her mantra: “Go Big…or Go Home”.
