Catherine has always had an attraction to jewelry and an innate love of working with her hands. She studied jewelry making and classical metal-smithing and later worked under several US designers. Catherine and husband Scott Diamond started Catherine Weitzman Jewelry in 2000 in San Francisco. In 2004, Catherine and Scott moved to Hawaii and built a studio where all the jewelry is still handmade today. The designs are an integration of Catherine's experiences and inspirations. Her designs are deeply influenced by her travels, her childhood, her love of nature and water.
