Kristi Nakata is a Yonsei (fourth generation) Japanese American fiber artist born and raised in the Seattle area, on Duwamish and Coast Salish land. Kristi creates macraweave wall hangings combining techniques of macrame and weaving. Inspired by the beauty of the Pacific Northwest, this collection is a series of mountainscapes and abstract interpretations of the colors of our region.
Every aspect of a WEND Jewelry original is carefully sourced using SCS Certified Recycled precious metal or Fairmined gold. Every gemstone has a known story, and our handmade jewelry is crafted in our Seattle studio.
from our hands to your hands
Most jewelry is designed on a computer. At WEND Jewelry, we design in nature, and create nature inspired jewelry collections and custom jewelry by hand. We use traditional goldsmithing tools to make your handmade jewelry.
The decision is all yours
Most jewelry is gendered. WEND Jewelry collections can be worn by you, no matter who you are. If you appreciate nature and prefer rugged, well-made, gender neutral jewelry, you have found it. Gender shouldn't define jewelry; you should.
