  • the maker

Krista Tranquilla

Krista Tranquilla's life of a maker came to be by many paths and influences. As a child she lived in the Blue Ridge Mountains surrounded by an active community of fiber artists. As a teen, she lived overseas when there was still an active tradition of local handcrafts. Her exposure at an early age to hand made goods and their makers is what planted the seeds of what she is becoming today.

Krista loves the multiple personalities that metal can take on through the process of making and in its intended end state. The same can be said for the techniques. Krista loves to combine newer technologies alongside traditional. There is so much room to successfully experiment, design and create something meaningful. Her inspiration comes from family, friends, peace of mind, getting outside, function, and irony. collection

        Comments about BRASS RULER CUFF:

        It's just alright. For the price it should have been something more. Its duller then I thought it be, smaller then I thought it be, and not as defined as I thought it be. I got it as a gift from me and my Fiance to his mother for our wedding, but we can't decide if we want to take it back and get something else or just stick with it and get something in addition to this. It honestly doesn't look worth anything more the 30 dollars but she's a principal so I think she'll love it regardless. If you going to charge 80 dollars for this at least put it nicely in the box. When I opened the box it was just banging around in it and had a sliver of one of those cotton things in it. Not my best purchase from here but everything else I have every received has been amazing.
