Thanks so much for visiting! I’m Kristina Henning - a self-taught jewelry designer working out of a small studio in my hometown of Mauriceville, Texas.
I started my company in 2009 and opened my first shop, Kande, on Etsy the same year. In 2011, I felt the need to carve out a little space of my own and started this website.
My focus is on creating beautifully handcrafted, high quality pieces of jewelry. I make each piece of jewelry by hand using various wire wrapping and metalworking techniques. Since I love a good sparkle, I only use high quality precious and semi-precious gemstones mixed with fine silver, sterling silver and 14k gold fill. This means that a large portion of my pieces are one of a kind and the rest are made in limited numbers.
I’ve been lucky enough to have my work featured on various blogs, websites, and in magazines. I also created the Pretty Palettes project for Bead Style Magazine, September 2012; Two Sides of the Story project for Bead Style, July 2014; and Clustered Gemstone Jewelry for Bead Style Magazine, May 2015.
When I’m not working in the studio, I’m hanging out with my son, our two dogs (Freckles & Jojo), and a herd of rescued kitties who have taken over the barn (and our hearts).
If you get a chance, I would love to hear from you! You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or join me online at:
