Specializing in mostly vintage, it is The Mod Ant’s mission to inspire and create jewelry designing pieces as well as offer vintage/antique jewelry that is passed down from generation to generation in order to spark joy and excitement into the life of creative individuals!
Josiah has always been a tinkerer at heart. As a young boy he loved taking things apart and putting them back together. Soldering is therapeutic for Josiah because he can focus on the task at hand and create something to be proud of. It is no surprise that a few years ago he found an interest in making lead free hand soldered pendants to inspire customers to take their jewelry to the next level. He spent hours and hours at his bench improving his craft and his journey speaks for itself.
In 2007, Katy graduated from St. Edwards University in Austin, TX with a Bachelor's Degree in Entrepreneurship. While in college, she helped run "Bead It" in Austin, TX with her sister. She always knew that she wanted to own a creative business and inspire others to do the same. After college, she began her career in a small family business with her parents selling antique and vintage jewelry as well as vintage beads and findings. She has always had a passion for design, fashion, and turning what seems to be undesirable into a work of beauty. She enjoys taking all the photos on the site and spreading the variety of product on Instagram (@themodant) and Facebook.
At The Mod Ant you can count on exceptional product with the utmost quality in mind as well as great customer service and fast shipping! If something is not right about your product or service received please do not hesitate to contact us. It is our goal to give our customers a 5 star experience!
As our children have gotten older we transitioned to online primarily while still doing some trade shows. Thanks for showing interest in our small family owned company in Tucson, AZ! Happy creating!

I have purchased many things from your father and then from you and your husband. I have been designing jewelry for almost 50 years after I graduated from design school. I have 100’s of reworked vintage and contemporary necklaces, as well as thousands of buttons, hundreds of expensive gold plated and silver plated filigree, hundreds of tubes and packages of seed beads, hundreds of vintage chains and chain parts as well as bags and bags of random vintage pieces. I would like to sell everything I have. I went to the show in Concord hoping to talk to you but found out that you moved out of state. I would like to know if you would be interested in buying everything I have. Please contact me and let me know your thoughts.
Although this is my first peek at the on line store, I have purchased peridot beads from Katy and Josiah from ebay. I
I can honestly say the texts I shared With Katy were a breath of fresh air in this stagnant pandemic filled world we are all forced to take part in as of late. I already know what beads I will be purchasing over the next few months so it’ll be fun to work with her again….always the smallest glimmers of hope that keep us sane and human. Thanks Katy!
I have purchased items from you that I love. Is there any way that the metal of your soldered pendants could come in colors other than black? Like a brass or copper color. I am not a fan of black. Thanks
Hi Guys! I just discovered you through another artist and am so excited! I am interested in the silver sailboat and the labrynth like pendants shown in the header of the pendants page. I don’t see any listed for sale. Any chance of having these again?? Please say yes! I LOVE your offerings!!
Thanks much and all the best in your endeavors.
