ABOUT KATIA DESIGNS
Located in South Florida, Katia Designs is owned by Catherine “Katia” Rudnick. Katia Designs is a collection of spiritual jewelry that speaks to the heart and brightens the day. Each piece of jewelry features an empowering message, as well as other components, such as gemstones, crystals, and more.
The journey to the brand was not a traditional one. Not being much of a jewelry wearer herself, Katia was surprised when a medallion bracelet worn by a fellow yogi caught her eye. The immediate draw to the boldness of the piece caught her off guard but she took it as a sign that this strong attraction should not be ignored, but followed. It was more than just the design of the bracelet that inspired Katia; it was her desire to recreate the same feeling for others. Jewelry had never been more than just jewelry, but in that moment it became so much more. It became a feeling. The same day, she drove to a local art school and signed up for a metal clay class. It was in this studio that she created the first prototypes for her medallions and the journey to Katia Designs began.
Many of the messages you see featured in Katia Designs are derived from how Katia chooses to live her life and how she hopes to inspire others to live their lives as well.
In 2022, Katia Designs earned a US patent for the necklace system that allows you to wear one necklace many different ways.”

DIORAMAS, by Blair Austin
“Winner of the Dzanc Prize for Fiction
In a city far in the future, in a society that has come through a great upheaval, retired lecturer Wiggins moves from window to window in a museum, intricately describing each scene. Whales gliding above a shipwreck and a lost cup and saucer. An animatronic forest twenty stories tall. urban wolves in the light of an apartment building. A line of mosquitoes in uniforms and regalia, honored as heroes of the last great war.
Bit by bit, Wiggins unspools the secrets of his world—the conflict that brought it to the brink, and the great thinker, Michaux, who led the diorama revolution, himself now preserved under glass.
After a phone call in the middle of the night, Wiggins sets out to visit the Diorama of the Town: an entire, dioramic world, hundreds of miles across, where people are objects of curiosity, taxidermied and posed. All his life, Wiggins has longed to see it. But in the Town, he comes face to face with the diorama’s contradictions. Its legacy of political violence. Its manipulation by those with power and money. And its paper-thin promise of immortality.
In this hybrid novel—part essay, part prose poem, part travel narrative—Blair Austin brings us nose to the glass with our own vanishing world, what we preserve and at what cost.”
THE MIDDLE DAUGHTER, by Chika Unigwe
“A lush, powerful tale of family and sisterhood from award-winning author Chika Unigwe, perfect for fans of Bernardine Evaristo and Tayari Jones.
Udodi’s death was the beginning of the raging storm but at that moment, we thought that the worst had already happened, and that life would treat us with more kindness.
When seventeen-year-old Nani loses her older sister and then her father in quick succession, her world spins off its axis. Isolated and misunderstood by her grieving mother and sister, she’s drawn to an itinerant preacher, a handsome self-proclaimed man of God who offers her a new place to belong. All too soon, Nani finds herself estranged from her family, tethered to her abusive husband by children she loves but cannot fully comprehend. She must find the courage to break free and wrestle her life back—without losing what she loves most.
A modern reimagining of the myth of Hades and Persephone within a Nigerian family, The Middle Daughter charts Nani’s journey to freedom and homecoming.”
