  • the story

Botanical Band

This botanically-inspired ring, cast from flowing blades of blue oat grass, serves as a gentle reminder of the intricate beauty inherent to nature's simplest designs. Jewelrymaker Kristin Schwartz creates a mold from the grass, casts the interwoven, organic design in .927 pure silver, and adds a blue-green patina to provide subtle contrast. Handmade in Seattle.

Kristin Schwartz

Kristin Schwartz studied studio art in Southern California and 11 credits from a degree, she got scared and changed her major to business management. It all worked out for the best.

Kristin spent most of her life in the corporate world. Although successful, she never felt completely comfortable in corporate skin. As an exit strategy, she began to lay the groundwork to start her own business, though Kristin had no idea what that would be. She was only sure it would be something creative. Kristin discovered Precious Metal Clay (PMC) through a 3 hour class and that was the beginning of the end of her corporate life. She has taken a couple workshops since then, but is primarily self taught.

Kristin is influenced by everything natural but not limited to “nature”. Growth and change are naturally occurring in people as well as our environment. She hopes the results of her influences touch those that see her jewelry, even in the smallest way. She designs and creates each piece by hand from her studio in the Seattle area. Kristin's two boxers, Kisa and Lumen are always around to offer moral support. Kristin considers everything she makes a tiny piece of art. Wear your tiny piece of art with a happy heart because that is how it was made.

      Comments about REED TINY RING:

      The fuming or whatever puts the color on the ring around the edges of the reeds is almost completely non existant. Even squinting and putting in direct light, it's very difficult to see any colour. But, I still love it, it's still beautiful and comfortable.
