A quick scroll through the Cris & Shawn Instagram page will show you that much inspiration is drawn from various forms of subject matter; such as items found in the natural world, sculpted clay vessels, and contemporary sculpture. Crishana, designer and founder, reinterprets these forms into what is best described as wearable sculpture!
Crishana Manigan designs and handcrafts her collection Cris & Shawn in Milford, Ohio. As a jewelry designer, her work embraces a minimal aesthetic by creating structural silhouettes with metal. Taking inspiration from her sketches, Crishana produces each piece by hand using sheet metal and wire to manipulate original forms. The use of hammers, files, and flame help to create scale through shapes and movement in lines. The resulting work is an exploration of lightweight, bold jewelry that is perfectly comfortable to wear for an entire evening.
Handmade items vary in form, and style characteristics change with each piece. Each piece is crafted with love and carries with it the charming characteristics gained from jewelry fashioned by hand.
We love Cris & Shawn for their wearability and their artistic forms that boldly compliment evening looks and elevate our more casual day-to-day looks.
