Kathy Janz was born in Brisbane, Australia, but early in her childhood, she moved with her family to the Netherlands. After studying at the University of Amsterdam, she made her career in marketing. Kathy’s love of handicrafts never left her, however, and once her three children were grown she decided to start a business of her own. She now sells her handmade jewelry in her online shop, Kayee Design, and through her Etsy shop, Kayeedesign. Kathy is delighted to share her patterns for friendship bracelets and to introduce readers to the wonderful world of kumihimo, a traditional Japanese form of braid-making.
