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.”

Shop Collections

The Shokmalli' Collection explores celestial themes within Chickasaw culture. Shokmalli' means lightning in Chickasaw and the sky serpent is a powerful deity who controls lightning, wind, and rain. Each piece reflects the different facets of the Sky Serpent ranging from soft to bold.  The designs capture the deity's ethereal beauty as well as it’s immense power.  Both are qualities that the Kristen Dorsey Designs woman embodies.
