Kristen Dorsey Designs, LLC was founded in 2011 by Kristen Dorsey, an award-winning Chickasaw metalsmith living and working in Huntington Beach, CA. For Kristen, jewelry goes beyond ornamental adornment; it is a medium with which she has forged her cultural identity as a citizen of the Chickasaw Nation, a Native American tribe originally from the southeast.  Utilizing natural gemstones, precious metals, and other materials, her handcrafted jewelry pieces are a unique mix of Chickasaw visual traditions infused with inspiration drawn from the beauty of the California Coast.  Dorsey’s philosophy is that “jewelry is a sacred narrative; it captures moments of significance for the wearer such as transitions in life, relationships with one another, and with one’s community, cultural identity, and spirituality.”

Los Angeles Fashion Week Recap

Kristen Dorsey

It has been a busy season for Kristen Dorsey Designs!  This past fall we debuted the Shokmalli' collection.  Shokmalli' means lightning in Chickasaw and each piece represents an aspect of the sky serpent deity from Southeastern Native culture.  The Shokmalli' collection was debuted on the runway during Los Angeles Fashion week with Project Ethos.  Our jewelry was paired with Lauren Stuckey designs in leather and chiffon.  The overall look was modern goddess with an edgy twist.  Our beautiful models killed it on the runway to the powerful beat of Goldfrapp.
