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.”

Of Earth and Place Collection

With this collection, we reconnect to the land of our Chickasaw ancestors. Forced from their home in the southeast during 1830s by the Longest Walk, for many years looking back was too painful. Yet now, we are actively preserving and protecting the fragile ecosystems that nourished and anchored our ancestors for thousands of years. The Of Earth and Place collection takes these concepts of place and environment and interprets them through my personal experience. My dreams of the Chickasaw homelands in the southeast are represented by the plant species used by my ancestors and rendered within an Art Deco framework. With this collection, I honor the knowledge of our people and the place we will forever call home.
