'WhimsicaLuxe' best describes the essence of Kristin Ohmstede Fine Artisan Jewelry. Taking inspiration from animals, her unique creations evoke a playful mood of innocence. Handcrafted in Los Angeles using precious metals and gemstones and exquisite French enameling, the collection is emotionally contagious.
Born in Texas to larger-than-life parents, Kristin’s father was a successful industrial designer and avid outdoorsman; her mother, a stylish and spirited individualist. Kristin has lived, worked and been an ardent student of style the world over before calling Los Angeles home. She studied at London’s Central St. Martin’s and Otis Art Institute in L.A. and fell in love with the art of fine jewelry-making. Her debut line expresses the beauty in her creative vision, merging her earliest memories of nature and animals with an illustrative, modern collection of wearable luxury.
Poetic and elegant, Kristin Ohmstede Jewelry elicits in the wearer a transported state of youthful reverie.
