Sophisticated Designs Jewelry by Kathy Mattes

Meet the Artist, Kathy!

I love colors and textures. I love glass. I love natural gemstones and pearls. So, making beaded jewelry is a perfect expression of what makes me feel good every day.​ This is why I created Sophisticated Designs

Creative women love to have a necklace, bracelet or pair of earrings that makes a statement, but looks classy and expresses her uniqueness. Those are my customers.


If you do not find what you are looking for as you browse through the shops, let me know and I will design something specially for you.

You can also see my work in person throughout the year at shows that I post on my website and promote via website emails and other media.

Each piece of jewelry by Sophisticated Designs tells a unique story, from the delicate intricacies of vintage-inspired designs to the bold, contemporary statements that have adorned my satisfied customers.


Many items seen here were custom designs for a client that had a particular look in mind. If you have such an idea, contact me and let's design together.

Browse this gallery to witness the evolution of my passion for creating timeless jewelry that transcends trends and stands as a testament to enduring beauty.
