After completing a degree in Constructed Textiles in 2001 and then working in the retail industry, Kay decided to set up her own business in 2007 concentrating on making leather purses and handbags from vintage fabrics and clothing.
Since 2011 Kay has been evolving her jewellery range, inspired by a need to repurpose all her remnant leather from her purse making practice. This ethos has become central to her business and now she only uses reclaimed leather, which is bought as a waste product from the manufacturing process. All Kay’s products are handmade at her home studio in Bristol, every piece is created using hand tools and assembled by hand ensuring it’s quality and uniqueness. Kay enjoys experimenting with colour and shapes, creating graphic, colourful jewellery which is lightweight and easy to wear. Her aim is to create work which is both bold and bright yet still keeping a simple geometric style. Every Kay Morgan item is hand crafted and individually constructed using vintage leather punches, with every detail carefully considered ensuring each item is both functional, beautiful and tactile.
