Conversations with an Artist: Krista Gambrel of Ende Collective

Conversations with an Artist: Krista Gambrel of Ende Collective

We discovered Krista, the creator behind Ende Collective, at a trade show and listened from the sidelines as she told some visitors to her booth about a piece she designed. We were captivated by her storytelling, inspirations, intellect, creativity and modern jewelry design. We invited her to spend some time with us at the shop. And are excited to carry her collection. We are thrilled to introduce you. Read her story and meet her in person Wed June 7, 4-7pm.
