  • November Holiday Shows & Inspiration

by Kristin Cooper November 03, 2019

Happy Fall!

We're excited to return to favorite holiday events and venture to a couple of brand new venues -- we hope you'll join us! Chris and I added to our collection at the KC Gem & Mineral Show yesterday, and we're super inspired to design new work around these gemstones! Read on to see new gems sparking our creativity, plus details of where you can find us and our new pieces in person this month. 

Sterling Silver and Chrysoprase Hoop Earrings

 We're bringing a great selection of gift options to our shows -- pieces that will last a lifetime. You can't go wrong with our lightweight earrings! I just finished these double hoop earrings (above) this morning. Brand new oval green chrysoprase beauties inspired the design (and got me working early!). Chris is busy hand-stamping new patterns in our sterling silver stacking rings, post earrings, and bracelet designs as I write this. There's a whole lot of hammering going on here!

Turquoise Aquamarine, and Kyanite Gemstones

Hunting for gemstones at gem shows with Chris is one of my all-time favorite things in life. We both get into the flow while searching for high quality, gemmy, natural stones, and we always leave super inspired, filled with new ideas. Above see some of the gorgeous turquoise, aquamarine, and kyanite gems inspiring our work this season.

THANK YOU so much for your support of the work we create, we couldn't continue this adventure in metalsmithing without you all! We're wishing you health and happiness this holiday season & beyond.

XOXO, 
Kristin & Chris

Introducing Our Mantra Jewelry

by Kristin Cooper August 08, 2019

Words matter. Chris and I know firsthand how a simple inspiring intention like “Peace” or phrase such as, “Don’t wobble,” can shift life on a better path. We learned by my dad’s example: “Do what you love.” Losing people we love suddenly and tragically taught us life IS short: “Create the life you want -- and start now.”
