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.”

Every holiday season America goes shopping and this year it is more chic than ever to buy USA - made. If this is your plan this year, here is a way to take it to the next level and buy Native made! Buying Native for your gifts this holiday season means that the items you purchase do not come from sweatshops overseas but instead are made with the hands and hearts of individual artisans, designers, and local communities right here in the USA. As a bonus Native-made products are often inspired by stories and elements within vibrant and unique cultures. What is better than gifting a loved one with an item that you know is heirloom-worthy, collectible, or tells a beautiful story. So on Black Friday and Cyber Monday don't hit the local super store, instead check out this list of Native artists and businesses which includes Kristen Dorsey Designs! (Logo by Victor Pascual)
