The National Association of Professional Women (NAPW) honors Katherine A. Johnson as a 2015-2016 inductee into its VIP Woman of the Year Circle. She is recognized with this prestigious distinction for leadership in business. NAPW is the nation’s leading networking organization exclusively for professional women, boasting more than 700,000 members and over 200 operating Local Chapters.
“It gives me great pleasure to present Katherine with this important honor,” said NAPW President Star Jones. “She used her expertise to build a successful business enterprise.”
Ms. Johnson is a skilled and knowledgeable Gemology and Jewelry Specialist with nearly ten years of experience in the jewelry business. She began her successful career as a Goldsmith at several noted jewelry companies where she honed her expertise in jewelry repair, custom jewelry design and creation, and jewelry component fabrication.
Today, she is the Owner of Ravenstone Casting, LLC, which offers jewelry repair, casting and design services. The fast-growing company also provides business services and website hosting to the trade.
“I am passionate about jewelry! I love to make people happy with the jewelry I create for them. I love to help people find and make great jewelry!” said Ms. Johnson. Her passion for her craft is equally matched by her strong desire to make a difference by giving back to society. To this end, she donates a portion of each jewelry sale to charity, and does not plan on stopping there.
“My dream is to build my site into a community hub for the jewelry industry. I want to have a forum for sharing information within the industry and a network of websites that support and build the community,” she said.
