Austin Studio Tour

Standing in for Austin’s beloved East & West Austin Studio Tour events, this year anyone anywhere can enjoy in the AUSTIN STUDIO TOUR. It’ll be a new-style “tour” featuring virtual exhibitions, online programs, and self-guided art around the city.

I’ll be participating from my own (new!) home studio. I’m planning to have “Studio Office Hours” so you can video call me and go on your own private studio tour. I’ll probably also drop some nerdy facts about glass. 🤓

WHEN: November 14-22
WHERE: Start at!

Ladysmiths of ATX (a community of women jewelry artists here in Austin) are putting on a virtual market right on the heels of Thanksgiving. This event lines up with your last chance for safe get-it-by-Christmas shipping from me, so mark your calendars!

WHEN: Nov 28-Dec 6
WHERE: The Ladysmiths Instagram (@ladysmithsofATX), and all the artists’ websites

2020 Holiday Order Cut-off Dates

To take advantage of *free* domestic USPS First Class shipping, place your order by end of day Friday, 12/11.

The last day to order with upgraded shipping (like Priority Mail) place your order by end of day Tuesday, 12/15.

DECEMBER 23rd  Austinites Only
I offer *free* Contactless Pick-up (Rosedale) and Front Porch Delivery through end of day Wednesday, 12/23. These should be options at checkout, but if you have trouble, let me know!

These are conservative cut-offs to (hopefully) ensure you receive items ahead of Christmas, but due to COVID, I can't guarantee shipping times this year. These cut-off dates only apply to US orders and in-stock items. Made-to-order requests will be taken at my discretion until I've reached capacity and will require more time to fulfill. Shipping for orders with destinations outside the contiguous US can't be estimated nor guaranteed this year.

Katie Kismet Joins Etsy

We've finally done it: after nearly two years of being asked "Are you on Etsy?", now I am. I sort of did it backward in building my own website first. (Most folks dip their toes in with Etsy, then progress to their own e-commerce home. No toe-dipping here!) I'm hoping to get found by a few more people with this move.

If you're reading this here, though, then I don't know why you would need to shop Etsy instead... I suppose it could help my rankings, or you could throw me a Favorite ❤️... Anyway, now you know!

Product News: Sterling Silver

KISMET's upgrading to all sterling silver! Torus, Blue Skies, Stone and Confetti collection rings are now available in an adjustable recycled sterling silver band, custom made just for us right here in Texas. (Silver plated ring bands will remain an option as long as I have supply. Waste not!)

The Eco Confetti stud earrings are our first earring style to feature sterling silver posts. Other styles will follow suit as I make new inventory. If you ever have a question, request or concern regarding metals, let me know
