Hayley Richards of Kami & Kindred

Hayley Richards of Kami & Kindred

Hayley Richards (of Kami & Kindred) is a talented, self-taught designer and
ceramic artist who has a strong interest in organic abstract forms, natural
materials and traditional methods. She uses the gifts of the earth including
natural fibres and dyes combined with her unique hand-crafted stoneware
pieces which have tribal and simple Japanese aesthetics.


Hayley has been interested in fashion and design for many years including
exploring sewing and textiles, photography, web design, branding and event
staging.  Hayley is also a certified plant-based nutritionist and blogger (gathergirl.com).
Her love for the beauty and bounty of mother nature, and a focus on
sustainability and the ecology of our planet crosses over into her slow-fashion,
ethical jewellery and homeware collection.  She is also a busy mother of 3 young girls.


Kami & Kindred is all about natural beauty. A carefully crafted collection of
handmade, ceramic and natural fibre jewellery and homewares celebrating the
goddess within. Each and every product used to make her works are from the
earth; the clay dug from the ground in all its imperfect gritty beauty, the natural
glazes and dyes inspired by the colours of mother nature, through to the organic
cotton tassels and threads used to hand make the necklace ropes.


"Each item of jewellery is handcrafted by me, in every sense of the word. The process
includes sourcing local natural materials, working the clay, mixing and applying
specialty glazes and even producing the twisted fibre cords and tassels. No amount
of effort or love is spared.” - Hayley
