Chris and Kristin Cooper follow their hearts, leading them on a curvy and uncommon path of creativity. They met in college while majoring in metalsmithing and traveled the U.S. art fair by art fair for five years. Hoping to have kids, they hopped on the corporate path which led them to art directing in Los Angeles at Disney.com. They loved their jobs and creative friends in LA, yet craved wide open green spaces, clean air, and creating with their hands. They returned to the heart of the Midwest with their firstborn and appreciate being closer to family. Now, with their two kids and three rescue dogs, they get to roam the green ocean of the Flint Hills with buffalo … and hammer, texture, forge, and solder to their hearts’ (and hands’) content. Kristin & Chris enjoy creating sterling silver and copper jewelry with natural gemstones and patinas, specializing in textures they design themselves. They find inspiration in nature and have a ton of fun making art for one-of-a-kind people to wear every day.
