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.”

She knows that we must consider future generations when making important decisions, and that natural resources must be protected and managed wisely. She is the voice for those who can not speak, and courageously fights to create healthier ecosystems. Her values and her hope are her shield and her strength.  The Guardian Statement ring will be her most loved piece to empower her as she makes the world a better place.


The Heart of shield gift set is another gift idea for the guardian in your life.  The shield shapes reference how women are the guardians of our communities, histories, and cultures.
