Cristy's Comments

The "Please Return to New Orleans" collection was born from a heartfelt narrative of resilience and remembrance. As a local artist profoundly impacted by the events surrounding Katrina, I created this piece as a poignant emblem—a call to all who hold New Orleans dear. This design speaks not only to our beloved locals, once displaced and yearning for the comfort of home, but also to the visitors and volunteers whose presence breathed new life into our city’s recovery. Each time a tourist wishes to capture a memory of their journey, or a volunteer seeks to support our local economy, this piece serves as a meaningful token of gratitude and connection.

Imagine a young New Orleanian, perhaps a high school student who carries this piece to college in a distant town, reminding them of the vibrant culture and warm spirit of their hometown, beckoning them back after their studies. Or consider a local who, upon receiving a promising job offer elsewhere, keeps this piece as a symbol of new beginnings, laced with the resilience and strength drawn from their roots. Even the adventurer, drawn away by the allure of global explorations, finds in this jewelry a promise of return, a piece of New Orleans that ensures no matter how far they travel, a part of their heart remains anchored in the city.

Crafted in the aftermath of Katrina, this jewelry symbolizes a unified pledge among New Orleanians to rebuild stronger and more connected than ever. It’s a tribute to the enduring spirit of our community and an invitation to all: whether you've shared in our culture, contributed to our rebuilding, or dream of returning—please keep New Orleans close to your heart.
