Our Story

Hey let me introduce myself and Cleo!

I am Emilia, 31 Years old and originally from Montana. I studied Arts at the University Of Montana and later did my Masters in Jewelry Design at the European Institute of Design in Rome. I spent all this time with my bestie "Cleo", my favorite living being on this world! I got her when I was 23 and since then she has been the best cat one could ever imagine. My favorite thing to do is grab a book, a warm tee and snuggle with her while reading. The snurring she does when I pet her on the back is the sweetest thing in the world, believe me! 


After I returned from Rome (with Cleo of course) I started working in a local Jewelry Shop as a Designer. I loved the work, but because of the working hours I barely got to spend time with Cleo. It was almost like we got seperated.

After 2 years of working there and only seeing my girl in the morning and the evening, I decided I needed a change. On a small roadtrip with Cleo in 2013, I got the idea of creating cat-based Jewelry, hence combining the 2 things I love the most in life: Cleo and Jewelry.

Since then my life has been an absolute rollercoaster: At the beginning nobody thought it was a good idea and that I needed to "grow up" and "get a real job". Plus midth of 2014 Nala had a stomach infection and was fighting for her life, barely surviving after 2 weeks in the hospital. I thought her surviving the battle and staying with me wasthe ultimate sign that I needed to go on with my passion and pursuing my dream of creating original high-quality art and bringing myself into the world with my skills and passion, while also staying in touch with myself and Nala. 

In 2016 I finally had gathered enough money to release my first collection and the results were overwhelming! Cat lovers all over the world loved my work and encouraged me to keep going and extend my collection. Since then I have released over 50+ new pieces and currently I am working hard on relasing a new never-seen-before gemstone collection... 

Throughout the year 2016 I gathered some incredible team members around me who share my passion for cats and jewelry. I am so thankful for our amazing little group of 5! We are constantly reflecting over the company and its direction together, always making sure we are heading the right way. I never thought it's possible to have such a loving, but also productive work environment and I am nothing but happy about the KittySensation Team. 

This is my story and how the KittySensations Team got together. I struggled with putting it so short, I could propably write a whole book about it, haha! I want to thank you for being here, being part of my dream and I hope you love what I am doing just as much as I do :)
