Hello, my name is Christina. My partner, Travis, and I design and make jewelry for our line, Christina Nicole. We live in the countryside of Raleigh, North Carolina, with two sassy cats and a German Shepherd pup.

I studied at Savannah College of Art and Design. During my time there, I dabbled in a few different creative fields, including interior design, large-scale sculpture, and fashion. I found my niche in jewelry: It had aspects from the other genres that I loved, but on a much smaller scale. Shortly after SCAD, Travis became my partner in life and in business. Travis is a musician and songwriter with a degree in marketing; as a fellow creative, he sees my work through a different lens. He originally helped with business administration and shipping, but he now spends half the week beside me in the studio, filling orders, crafting vessels, and sketching. Collaborating together has refined our edges and streamlined our process. Our brand is stronger and more well-rounded because of it.

Travis and I are inspired by traveling to new places; we try to do it as much as possible. Our most recent trip was spending a few weeks in California, backpacking through the wilderness of Yosemite National Park. There, we immersed ourselves in breathtaking views and incredible landscapes. Exploring the wilderness rejuvenated our souls and fueled our creativity. During breaks from trekking through the mountains, we sketched new pieces and took in all the rocks, streams, and tiny ecosystems around us. When we got home, we had full cameras, thankful hearts, and a lot of ideas.

Etsy has been very kind to us: This marketplace has allowed us to establish ourselves as a brand, gain feedback from thousands of people on our work, and even land our first international stockist (hey there, bye-bye Bandit!). Selling on Etsy has taught us the importance of having original designs, authentic communication with our audience, and punctual customer service.

In the near future, we’re thrilled to be debuting our new metals and woods line, which includes a batch of hand-sculpted jewelry stands and vessels and spoons made from walnut, brass and bronze. Our vision for this new line is basically “ethically sourced materials and repurposed woods to hold your keepsakes — while making a statement.” We’re pretty excited to expand our brand further, to the world where form and function align.
