Focus On... Kris Nations! {And A Discount!}

A few weeks ago, I shared my excitement when Kris Nations was featured on Ideeli and teased you with her upcoming feature. Well, here it is! Kris Nations is run by two sisters, Kim and Kris, and Kim graciously answered my questions and offered a discount code just for Kate and Oli readers. Read on!

Tell me about your company. 
My sister Kris and I started this company in 2005 when we were unable to find unique jewelry items, within our budget.

What kind of mediums do you use and why?
Most of our collection is made from original artwork cut from recycled metals. Using our own artwork allows us to be more creative and unique.

Where do you get your inspiration? 
It sounds cliche but we find inspiration everywhere. we live in the san francisco bay area and inspiration is truly everywhere - people, nature, architecture.

What is your favorite music to craft by? 
Bjork, the pixies, npr (not music but i do listen daily).

When it's cold outside...
I hope it's snowing in tahoe so I can go snowboarding!

When I'm hungry...
I join my son for snack time.

{bird in flight pendant}

When I need a boost...
coffee for sure and probably a cookie :)

{champagne necklace}

I wish I was/were...
in Hawaii or Mexico swimming in the ocean

{pebble earrings}

If I could give one gift to everyone I know, it would be...
a green thumb

{rough cut quartz ring}

If I could have coffee with anyone, it would be...
my maternal grandmother, she passed away when I was 11. She is a huge inspiration for our collection.

If you were an animal, what would you be? 
a Pterodactyl.

{large dahlia earrings}

What's your favorite piece of your own?
I really love these Peacock Feather Hoops, they are versatile and dress up any ensemble.
