About the Artist
Creative pursuits have always been close to Kristin Ross' heart. Years of exploration and experimentation encouraged her to move from private expression to professional endeavour. In 2006 she opened her fashion accessory boutique which featured local artisan jewellery. During those early days, Kristin created unique wire and fine bead pieces that were trending at the time. Not long into her career, however, fate stepped in with the sad passing of her lovely Nana, a seamstress by trade. Little did Kristin know that when she requested her late grandmother's trove of buttons she would be embarking on a new path. That collection of buttons led the way to the fine vintage button jewellery that Kristin is renowned for today. Her pieces are beloved by loyal and new customers at artisan shows throughout Ontario and are sought after by fine retailers across Canada. Kristin's jewellery has received professional acclaim and industry praise. Kristin continues to grow and evolve, through professional courses and artistic collaboration. Her work, like herself, is genuine, honest, and true.
