Hi, I'm Krista

I'm a designer, architect, jeweler, and mom living and working outside of Boston. Interested in the meandering path that led me from the drafting table to the jewelers bench? Click below for a brief summary of my somewhat choppy and ever-evolving jewelry journey.

I love the magic...

...of taking a material from its raw form, and turning it into something meaningful, beautiful and unexpected.
