My name is Kristien, I live in Greenville, SC. I've been doing metalworking for about 4 years now, and my metals studio is set up in a barn in my backyard. I get pretty much all of my inspiration from things in nature. For example, I have a line of "Mushroom Rings" that are like little abstracted forms of mushrooms. Two of them are in the shop. I also do more literal nature pieces, like my Mountain jewelry, which are some of my favorites because my mountains (The Blue Ridge) are really special to me. Right now the shop has two Mountain pieces, I just sold a third, and I'm working on another. They feature silhouettes of mountain ridges the way you would see them if looking off an overlook or big hill. I'm also working right now on doing some mountain animal pieces, that is, critters that would be found in my mountains. I'm so excited about it! I just opened up a craft blogl so if you'd like ot check it our, hop over to:
