Christine Fail

With a BFA in studio art, designer Christine Fail's background is firmly rooted in art and design.

Christine's mission is to provide quality handmade jewelry at accessible price points. Each piece is delicately handcrafted in her Austin, TX studio and as a result of her background in metalsmithing, a hammer touches all of the pieces.

Most pieces start out as wife or sheet and the form is created by cutting and hammering, making each piece truly unique. The result is a collection of everyday essentials made up of heirloom quality forged hoops and hooks, handcrafted in 14k gold.

Teeny Hoop Earring
$70

Teeny Hoop Earring

This little hoop is simple and easy to wear every day. It's a little larger than snug; meaning it will not touch the ear lobe, but rather hang slightly below. Because gold does not like to be bent over and over again, we suggest leaving this hoop in when sleeping, and making sure to open the piece by twisting sideways rather than pulling straight open.  This hoop is not meant for cartilage piercings Single earring! For a pair, add two to your cart. MADE OF 14K yellow gold
