My name is Kathryn Pasquach, I am a Cree woman with ties from the Mushkegowuk area and a member of Moose Cree First Nation. Growing up in Toronto, I began making jewelry at a very young age taught by my Mother and Grandmother. Today, I have over 20 years of experience crafting jewelry.

When it comes to jewelry, there's nothing better than a variety to choose from. Culture Shock Jewelry came to life 10 years ago as I sought to incorporate my love of mainstream fashion and my First Nations culture. Culture Shock proudly sells handmade and costume jewelry to people across Turtle Island (North America).

I carry jewelry that draws from both Traditional Native American Elements and modern fashion design. A variety of jewelry that uses materials such as, seed beads, semi-precious stones, mixed metals, leather, feathers and more, Culture Shock Jewelry has a little bit of everything. In addition to jewelry, CSJ carries a variety of traditional crafts including handmade; moccasins, dreamcatchers, medicine pouches, keychains, tamarack birds and more.
