Owner & Designer
Katelynne grew up in small-town Montana, and as the daughter and granddaughter of jewelers, is told she began helping clients choose diamonds at the age of three (her mother says many sales were made by Kate telling a customer, “that pretty on you!”). Katelynne began in the jewelry business professionally in 2005, and opened her brick-and-mortar store, Sugar Plum Fine Jewelry, in 2013. Her main focus has always been custom jewelry that is beautiful, well made, and functional for her clients’ lives, and in 2019 she won the March Bridal Madness design award for custom bridal design!
In 2017, Kate's husband Jayson joined the team at Sugar Plum Fine Jewelry. Kate and Jayson love the family aspect of working together! Jayson works in repair services (alongside Kate’s father, Jamie, who brings nearly 40 years of experience in the industry), while Katelynne spends the bulk of her time getting to know clients on a personal level and designing beautiful, modern, functional pieces for them.
Katelynne and Jayson live in Glendive, Montana with their three children - son, Griffin; twin daughters, Lily and Chloe; and two cats, Luna and Apollo.
Talia started working at Sugar Plum Fine Jewelry in 2019. While working there, Talia was also pursuing dual degrees at Dawson Community College. Talia's knowledge and interest in jewelry sales and marketing prompted her to pursue her Applied Jewelry Professional [AJP] degree through the Gemological Institute of America [GIA].
