The rural hills of New England may seem an unlikely place to find inspiration for what would later become a line of handcrafted jewelry rooted in architectural forms. But, Kiersten Crowley believes it was her upbringing and the natural environment surrounding her as a child that played a big role in how her jewelry line evolved. Fast-forward several years and a few moves to Portland, Oregon, where she has now lived for over a decade. Unable to find what she was looking for, Kiersten began making jewelry as gifts for friends and family when a friend and textile designer encouraged her to try selling her work. She did just that—showing some of her pieces in a fledgling collection at a Christmas art & craft show, where she was well received. From there her craft emerged and after several collections has evolved into a successful business.
Handmade in Portland, Oregon.
