Mod Metals was born in late 2004 by sheer accident.
Kristen Crisp, an always-aspiring artist, decided that after many, many, MANY years of working retail, it was time for a change.
Deciding to go back to school a little later in life, Kristen chose to take a few more art classes to re-spark her lost creative side. One class she chose to take was Small Metals & Jewelry. She was quickly hooked and hasn’t looked back since.

While she remained true to the family tradition, she scaled it back a bit. Always armed with silver herself, she’s more likely to wear one bold, modern cuff instead of the ever-loud arm of jangling bangles she grew up around! (No disrespect of course!)
Thus brings us to present day where Kristen has chosen to take what she’s learned and share with the world her own mod creations which are mostly based on modern design of the 50’s, 60’s & 70’s.
Kristen currently resides in Gainesville, FL via way of Chicago, IL, via way of Dallas, TX with her amazingly tolerant husband Julian, 2 very cool stepchildren & 3 very bizarre cats.
