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.”

Significance

This pendant features organic detailing reminiscent of the Yaupon plant. The detailed work on each side of the stone are further inspired by the plant, which was an important resource for indigenous groups in North America. Yaupon is the only indigenous plant in North America that produces caffeine. It was used for tea and was a trade commodity for ancestors of modern day southeastern tribes. The vibrant colored stones symbolize energy and the plant’s red berries.
