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.”

I am excited to announce the new "Earth, Water, Sky" collection for Spring/Summer 2012! It is so satisfying to see my hard work at the bench come to life through photography. The key looks are featured on the new Kristen Dorsey Designs home page and were produced with the efforts of some very talented ladies in the Los Angeles fashion scene. The beautiful and talented model Julia Barna was photographed in the Earth Water Sky collection by fashion/art/lifestyle photographer Emily Knecht ( The shoot was styled by Sarah Tohl of Line Mag ( and These images featuring the Water Disk Collection are shot in b&w film and are some of my absolute favorites. For me, these photos capture the siren song of beautiful jewelry. Enjoy!
