Cat Janiga is a Toronto-based jewelry designer creating contemporary, high-quality pieces for exceptional women. She began silversmithing over 15 years ago and received her Bachelor of Design from OCAD University, majoring in Metalsmithing and Jewellery Design. Before launching her eponymous collection in 2014, she apprenticed with a fine jewelry designer and has worked alongside her mentor Dean Davidson – one of Canada’s leading contemporary fashion jewelry designers – for the past 7 years.
Inspired by her continuing travels around the world, each of Cat’s creations is rooted in a desire to support and empower women everywhere. She is proud to have her work adorn such like-minded and notable women as Sophie Gregoire Trudeau, Jessica Mulroney, and Sarah Rafferty.
A note from the designer
“I want my jewelry to be both a crown for my queens and armour for my boss bitches.”
I'm never afraid to fully express myself, you’ll find all of my jewelry imbued with the same strong feminine force. Rooted in a clean and minimalist aesthetic offset with genre-defying details inspired by architecture and the various forms of nature, my pieces are simultaneously on-trend yet timeless.
