Christina’s appreciation for Native American jewelry started in the 70’s, as she would frequently visit California with her father, where she was introduced to the hippie culture and when she bought some of her first pieces. What captivates Christina about Native American jewelry is the cultural and symbolic meaning embedded in their motifs and how beautifully they emanated their philosophy of nature and life through the aesthetic mission of jewelry. Honoring the connection between culture, nature, beauty and meaning, Christina draws from the symbols, shapes and motifs of Native American Jewelry and adorns them in 18k gold to showcase their beauty and wisdom with a bit of a Christina twist.
