Growing up a rancher’s daughter in rural Southeastern Oregon, Catie Kershner turned her passion for ranching traditions into a business when she started working with silver over 10 years ago. Primarily focusing on jewelry, Kershner creates pieces with working ranches, rodeo, farms, and agriculture in mind. Kershner loves to make jewelry that’s “meant to be worn” and stand as a family heirloom representative of ranching lifestyles in the West.
Future for women: “Women of the West are running their own ranches, starting successful businesses, raising kids, and collaborating with each other. It’s truly exciting to see the camaraderie among women in the Western industry because we all know it takes a village.”
