Kimberly Crist's Profile

About

I like to experiment and to tinker, striving for beauty and function as well as interest in the pieces that I create. Looking to nature, science, spirituality, and all the places in between for my ideas and inspiration, my aesthetic has been described as many different things, but the terms I hear most often are playful and modern. Exploration is key, in art and in life - it keeps me busy and happy.

I hold an AAS in Graphic Design and a BFA in Sculpture/Metalsmithing. My work has been in art/craft shows around the country and I do sell internationally. I have made art in its many forms, and have taken workshops and classes in a multitude of areas so my range is broad and my ideas stay fresh.

I took the handmade pledge.

I live in a great little house just outside of Rochester, NY with my husband, my son, 3 cats, 11 fish, 2 frogs, and a bunch of hungry squirrels that come and knock on the back door when they want nuts. I make all of the jewelry I sell in my home studio.

Currently, I sell under two shops on etsy. One for my metal work (manicmetals) and one for my other crafty explorations: SqueeWorthy! you can find it over here: https://www.etsy.com/shop/squeeworthy.

I was originally damselflycreations but there was a small dispute over the name and so I decided to rebrand as ManicMetals. This changeover happened in 2008. I keep damselflycreations as an empty storefront now, as well as to keep track of old sales.
