A Brief Biography...
Cristy was raised in the suburbs of New Orleans, specifically in Metairie and Kenner. She attended Ursuline Academy High School in uptown New Orleans. During this time, she officially became an uptown girl. Nevertheless, it was not until she left for college that she realized how much she loved and missed her city. In the Fall of 2008, she left to Mobile, AL to attend college but was too homesick to stay. She transferred back to her hometown to Loyola University's School of Business for her junior year and graduated in 2012. While she always had a passion and talent in the arts, jewelry design was the last thing on her mind until her family influenced her back in high school. During the immediate aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, then only a sophomore at Ursuline, Cristy began contributing to her parents' French Quarter jewelry business by creating her own designs, stringing necklaces and helping run daily operations whenever possible. Cristy started her own company five months after she graduated from Loyola and has been enjoying life as an entrepreneur. In September 2014, Cristy was on the cover of New Orleans magazine for being one of the magazine's "People to Watch," a compliment any local hard-working entrepreneur appreciates to heart. She attended the Gemological Institute of America in Carlsbad, and is a certified GIA CAD/CAM tech. Her hobbies include riding motorcycles with her husband, spending time with her 3 dogs, and traveling as much as possible. She is a member of Ducati Owners of New Orleans Club. Cristy strongly believes in the power of energy. She considers herself a very spiritual person and incorporates her own emotions and energy into her work. As a designer, she strives to expresses her positiveness into her designs. Believing in the power of positive energy, her intent is to spread happiness, love and joy through her talents. Her work has been featured in several local, New Orleans magazines and blogs. She is most known for incorporating New Orleans history and culture into her work. Her long-term goals are to expand her designs to include different cities from different states and have retailers beyond the Louisiana border.
