Cris & Shawn
Cris & Shawn is a collection of contemporary earrings designed and produced by Crishana Manigan 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 forms by hand using sheet metal and wire to manipulate an original flat dimension. The use of hammers, files, and flame help to create scale through shapes and movement in lines. The development of the composition brings forth a beauty that interacts with the consumer.
The resulting work is an exploration of jewelry as lightweight wearable sculpture.
