Meet Christina

 
Hello! I’m Christina.

I’m an artist and jewelry designer living in metro Atlanta, GA with my husband (and best friend). I work with passion and conviction bringing stylish, quality works of art to those who appreciate unique, handmade treasures.

When I can help you find that special piece of art, my heart sings!

History

After years in the software development industry, I left IT to pursue my dream of working as an artist. The technical and business skills I acquired as a developer complemented establishing an e-commerce business. When I first “opened shop” in 2010, it contained just a handful of charcoal drawings. But after three long months of waiting, I finally had that first sale which gave me a huge boost of confidence to continue. Little did I know that within a year, NBC would contact me to purchase my “Pear Bunch” drawing for use on their ‘Parenthood’ set.

That same year I also had the opportunity to assist a judge at the Dogwood Festival, a large fine arts show in Atlanta. I was paired with a 3D judge, meaning he only evaluated works of art like pottery, wood, and jewelry. The moment we stepped into the booth of a particular jewelry designer, a spark was lit. For the rest of the day, I couldn’t stop thinking about how she formed and bended metal into such beautiful statement pieces. A few months later, I was enrolled in my first metalsmithing class at the Spruill Center for the Arts and immediately fell in love with another medium.

Today I continue to work in charcoal and make elegant jewelry pieces for customers around the world. I also play with pixels, combining my love of art and technology into digital creations.

My Commitment to You

I believe in providing exceptional customer service. I work carefully and diligently, never releasing an art or jewelry piece unless I’m willing to stand behind it.

I love making my customers happy!

If you are happy with your purchase, or even more, connect with the piece you’ve received, then I’ve succeeded as an artist. And if for some reason you’re not satisfied? I have an easy 10-day return policy. My customers rarely take advantage of this, but I understand that shopping online is different from shopping in-person.

In a nutshell, I want you to feel comfortable purchasing from me.

The Art and Jewelry

Each original artwork begins as an idea in my head, or is inspired by something I’ve seen or experienced. All artwork is completed using professional artist-grade mediums and supports and is made to last.

Each jewelry piece is formed from raw materials using metalsmith techniques such as sawing, hammering and soldering. Designs are made with metals including sterling silver, copper, and brass, and occasionally include semi-precious stones. These pieces are truly handmade.

Both nature and geometry heavily influence my work, resulting in a tailored style that blends traditional and modern elements.

James 1:27

“Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.”

A percentage of all sales is given to support My Father’s House International, a ministry committed to showing the love of Christ to families in crisis by caring for them physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.

They specifically support La Casa de mi Padre, a Christ-based children’s home in San Salvador, El Salvador. Their mission is to heal hearts, restore families, and bring hope of a better future to the children and young adults residing there.
