KoolKat Designs has had its home on Washington Road in Mt Lebanon for the past 5 years, giving local artists and crafters a home where we can sell our wares. Owner and founder Kate McGrady started KoolKat as a consignment store for local jewelry artists; today it is a gorgeous collection of locally hand-crafted jewelry, purses, scarves, stationary, and other original art.

Interestingly enough, most of the artists represented at KoolKat are women, making it one of my very favorite places to buy and sell my wares. KoolKat began selling bel monili items in October 2011, after a meeting with Paula Nettleship. I was honored to be added as an artist at this prestigious location, and I am looking forward to a long and rewarding relationship with Kate, Paula, and the other artists at KoolKat.
