Designer Story
In January 2015 Teddi began learning the art of jewelry making.  She quickly became enamored with the hammer, the saw, and the drill, and in March of 2016, founded Kit+Syl, a handmade jewelry label inspired by the intersection between nature, design, and the female form.  The shop was aptly named in honor of her style savvy grandmothers, Kitty Rogers and Sylvia Fader.

Teddi strives to create pieces that are lightweight and easy to wear, but are also visually striking.  Each piece reflects her love of texture, asymmetry, and her desire to build wearable art that compliments the female form.  Teddi stays true to a style and aesthetic, which embraces contrast.  You will notice that her designs are delicate and intricate, but the materials she uses are strong metals, often roughly hammered.

Each piece is handmade, one-of-a-kind, and well suited to compliment casual or formal attire.  All purchases come with a lifetime guarantee, and a two week return policy in exchange for store credit.  At Kit+Syl commissions, questions, and comments are always welcome, so do not hesitate to reach out!

Q+A
WHAT DO YOU LOVE MOST ABOUT BEING A FASHION DESIGNER?

My favorite part about being a fashion designer is seeing my art translated into wearable pieces.  Not only does this make the work accessible to a wider population, but it then becomes a collaboration that is loved, worn, and interpreted by the wearer.  I enjoy the idea of my art traveling and sparking conversations that I, as the creator, am not a part of.

WHAT HAS BEEN YOUR BIGGEST CHALLENGE?

The biggest challenge is getting the work seen and sold.  The market is highly saturated with very talented, up and coming jewelry designers, so you really need to market and believe in your brand in order to get it to stand out above the others.    



WHERE DO YOU GET YOUR INSPIRATION?

My inspiration comes from the relationship between nature and design, and how that relationship can then be translated to the female form.  I am constantly obsessing over the patterns in wood grain, mushroom caps, and insect wings.  I am energized by the lines and textures found in nature.  I attempt to harness that visual interest and redirect it into art women love to wear.  



WHAT MADE YOU WANT TO BECOME A DESIGNER?

I have always been interested in fashion design, and the different ways in which the body can be modified and adorned.  It was a very natural transition for me to move from 2D work to wearable work.
