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 Panther Woman Collection

Chickasaw women are guardians of our families, communities, and culture. The Panther Woman collection celebrates the contributions made by our female leaders throughout the centuries and is named after a historic female battle strategist from the 1800s.  Each piece draws upon imagery from ancient adornment, and adorns the wearer like bejeweled armor and weaponry fit for today’s female warriors.  Never conquered, always fearless.
