Meet the artist


I am Kristi, an alchemist, a self-taught electroforming artist, & a one-woman show at Royal Bear Designs.

I have a constant yearning to explore the deeper meaning of life, which continues to inspire what I do. My focus is to empower women with wearable art & to spread the message that we are each unique, beautiful, & worthy of all that we desire. Bringing beauty & intention into every jewelry piece.

Towards the end of 2019, I discovered a newfound obsession — raw gemstones & crystals. This obsession stemmed from my own unique, handmade mother’s ring & the everyday magic it brought to my life.

I am an artist that runs on late nights, Dr. Pepper, & kettle corn popcorn. My home studio is located in the beautiful Black Hills of South Dakota! With a husband & 3 boys at home, playing with pretty rocks is what fuels this creative exploration! These natural gemstones and crystals come from all over the world in limitless shapes, sizes & colors. This allows me to create enchanting & truly one-of-a-kind jewelry with each one being fused with so much love & intention. Each one tells your story! I pay close attention to detail during the design process, finding balance between modern aesthetics & timeless lines.

Each piece is individually handcrafted & blessed in Spearfish, South Dakota. I fashion your memorable pieces of jewelry to be worn, loved, & enjoyed every single day to bring you all the light, magic, & happiness for years to come! ♥
