Kris Halter Jewelry Trunk Show

May 7, 2016, 11:00 am – 3:00 pm

Kris Halter's designs are inspired by the symbolism of jewelry and its use throughout history for protection, attraction and enlightenment. 

Kris Halter Jewelry Trunk Show

May 7, 2016, 11:00 am – 3:00 pm

Of her jewelry, Kris Halter writes:

My first career as a fashion merchandiser trained my sense of what makes a woman alluring, decorated, perfect in form. Today, my work is inspired by the symbolism of jewelry and its use throughout history for protection, attraction and enlightenment. Nature, fine art, haute couture, indigenous cultures and spiritual traditions inform my work. I interpret these into unique compositions that are my trademark, using unexpected combinations of gemstones and found objects with silver and gold. I design all of my own work…the lovely meditation of creating with my hands.

It is my intention that you wear your Kris Halter jewelry often and that it be a symbol of the beautiful spirit that you are.

Earrings $45-$65, necklaces $120 - $450, bracelet $95-$145

Image: Midnight Sun, green herb jasper, bronzite, black tourmaline, egg jasper, African Tuareg silver, black onyx and sterling silver • adjustable 20"- 24" with 3" removable drop • available in other color/stone combinations 

View more of Kris Halter's designs.

A portion of the sales for each item that you buy during the trunk show at the Akron Art Museum supports the mission of the museum:To enrich lives through modern and contemporary art.
