Meet the Founders: Cindy Joffe & Kat Hammill

Founded in 2015 by Jewelry Designer Cindy Joffe and Design Director Kat Hammill, River Mint Finery is a union of their two design backgrounds and aesthetics.

Cindy, half of the mother/daughter jewelry line Avindy, brings a passion for found objects steeped in history, design, and nature. Over the years Cindy, a trademark lawyer, took time away from her career to nurture her creativity at her family cabin nestled high in the Blue Ridge Mountains. She is inspired by years of world travel and a philosophy built on the beauty of handmade craftsmanship.

Kat left the city thirsty for nature and settled roots in the Hudson Valley. As a creative entrepreneur, designer, and mother whose personal and professional endeavors have informed her aesthetic point of view. Warm, inviting, minimalism that's translated from her work to her home. For over two decades, Kat has brought her multi-disciplinary design approach to launch numerous products, brands, and lifestyles in the art, home and fashion industries. She worked as Design Director of Decorative Accessories at West Elm and is the co-founder of the luxury home fragrance brand, Night Space.
