'Kathy Kasper' Jewelry was sold by the artist in Santa Barbara 1976-2000. It has been an interesting and varied evolution of a delicate, feminine style.
KATHY (KASPER) WILSON
Many of Kathy's old customers will appreciate an explanation of the changes and evolution of her life and work. Kathy has always maintained a personal relationship with her customers, and considers them her family of friends over the 28 years of her work in Santa Barbara.
In 2000 Fred Kasper died after a two year diagnosis of melanoma.
Kathy was married in 2001 to their friend of many years, Rick Wilson,
a Professor of Mathematics at Caltech, Pasadena CA,
a player and collector historical flutes.
Their life together has been a wonderful adventure of travel and nourishing companionship.
See the Kathy&Rick Home Page to follow their travels and adventures.

Rick and Kathy have made a page in honor of Fred Kasper commemorating his life and music.
Kathy continued her work at the Santa Barbara Art Show until 2004, when she "retired" from the show in order to develop more of her other artistic work, to fill your on-line orders, and to travel with her husband Rick.
Rick and Kathy maintain a home in Santa Barbara and are usually there on weekends, while their work and life in Pasadena at Caltech and frequent travels keep them busy otherwise.
Kathy's son Timothy, who many old customers remember, now is married with two boys, his newest born last February.
