TMI Alert: I’m asked this all the time.


I design jewelry to make you feel beautiful every day.

This post might seem a bit off-topic for a jewelry studio. But happiness, beauty and integrity are core values at Katy Beh Jewelry.

I’m asked about the jewelry I'm wearing every day. I’m also asked about my skin.

I thought I'd share and spread the word about some fabulous products. I'll come clean about a few other things, too.

“I want my skin so beautiful I don’t need to wear make-up.”

My 40-something friend shared this with me almost twenty years ago. It stuck with me. Lisa’s skin was incredible.
Back then, no make-up was for sloppy Sundays. Now at 50, I’m a slave only to my eyebrows (I was deprived from birth).
I adopted Lisa’s mantra and feel pretty good in my own skin. Lots of products and money later and it’s absolutely worth it.

What do I use on my skin?

I’ll be honest.

First, good genes.

My mother uses Ivory soap on her face and is radiant at almost 80.

Second, I burn like a lobster.

Sunscreen is a food group.


A few personal decisions have made a difference.

  • Living in New Orleans’ high humidity.
  • A combo of OTC and high-end products.
  • Procedures. Can I get a Hells Yeah!

Let’s start with the OTC stuff.

  • Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser
  • Exfoliating shower gloves
  • Dove Sensitive Skin Body Wash
  • Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Sunscreen SPF 100
  • Alba Botanical Hawaiian Body Oil
  • Vaseline Intensive Care Advanced Repair Healing Moisture Lotion

Neocutis Skin Care products

Physician specific products

Needles and Fillers

Moses Plastic Surgery
  • Botox
  • Juvederm
  • and something else I don't remember.

The Daily Order

  • Dove body wash in the shower with exfoliating gloves then
  • Cetaphil
  • Alba oil
  • Green Gel or Mardi Gras Mambo
  • Journee or Bio Cream
  • Lumiere Eye Cream

Turning 50 wasn’t easy.
I wasted 49 worrying about it.
Then it happened. 
I’m still here.

Y'all think you are frugal and lazy...

  • I get my groceries delivered – from Walmart.
  • Prefer cheap beer.
  • I color my own hair.
  • Do my own nails.
  • Supercuts for a trim a couple times a year.

And, I splurge.


New Orleans lush palette, her vibrant Mardi Gras and laissez les bons temps rouler inspire the color and spirit of my jewelry.

My penchant for casual elegance motivates me to design pieces that are both luxurious and effortless to wear.

The elegant patina of time and practice; the contrast of decadence and decay...all fuel my unique jewelry vision.

Happy girls are the prettiest girls.

My wish is when you wear my jewelry, you’ll feel as happy as I did making it. With grace, I hope this joy will carry on generations to come. I believe when we celebrate our lives and loves with jewelry, those pieces must be as equally precious, extraordinary and lasting.
