About Satomi Studio

Designed with care by
Kristina Kada

Energy and precision unite in the natural world. Kristina Kada's handcrafted jewelry is inspired by this vital balance. The vigor of life meets the detail of art in her scatter of organic shapes over architectural forms.

Handcrafted
in Santa Cruz, California

Honoring the centuries-old Japanese tradition of Kumihimo, hand-dyed silk threads are woven into fine cord, pairing color with her modern designs in brass, sterling silver, 14k and 18k gold. What starts as a pencil sketch, Kristina translates her ideas into metal by using classic fabrication techniques like soldering, piercing, forging and wax carving to meld freehand elements with her original castings. We make it a priority to use reclaimed metal and source responsibly mined gemstones whenever possible.

Satomi Studio rests on the quiet coastal cliffs of Santa Cruz, CA. Each piece is designed and meticulously crafted by hand. By wearing these unique pieces, you carry the eager spirit of Satomi Studio with you.
