Meeting the Wandering Star Staff
Alicia C Katz is the artist and visionary behind Wandering Star Astrology Chart Jewelry. She is a Cancer with a Libra moon and Libra ascendant, and has two Yods in her chart.
She "aligned" with her idea for astrology jewelry while studying astronomy in Santa Fe, NM in 1995. She wanted to make jewelry that was not only pretty, but practical and powerful as well. She discovered that she could balance the science of astronomy with the art of astrology. The first pieces were made as Christmas presents, then friends started asking for them...and a business was born. Wandering Star grew from a tackle box at the kitchen table to a community-based business with stores and customers all over the world.
Alicia has a Masters in Teaching from Tufts University, where she graduated Magna Cum Laude. She is a member of the American Federation of Astrologers.
When not making jewelry, she teaches Microsoft Office User Certification at Heald College in Portland OR, and Western Business College in Vancouver WA. She has also designed a number of websites on the internet.
Alicia's committment to personal growth and artistic expression manifests a world that works for everyone. She says, "My jewelry is my way of bringing good energy to people's lives, to create a tangible tool to encourage a positive self-fulfilling prophecy."
With 20 stores carrying her jewelry, COVR awards, and articles being written about her work, it seems Alicia truly is making a difference in people's lives!
