Wife to a wonderful husband and mother to three beautiful girls, jewelry designer and creator of bird's tail designs, Kristin Burkemper finds true purpose. Her days are filled with taking care of her three beautiful girls, practicing and teaching yoga, and designing and creating her feminine, meaningful jewelry.
style and inspiration
Kristin loves fashion. "Maybe too much!" she says. A combination of vintage, rustic and modern edge are all words to describe her style, a style which translates into her work and life.
Kristin believes a woman doesn't have to spend a fortune to look and feel beautiful, and this is why she tries to keep her pieces as affordable as possible: "Expensive does not equate to beautiful," she explains. Every bird's tail piece can be purchased for under $100.
When asked why she decided to pursue a career in jewelry design, Kristin explains: "I worked in a high-end jewelry store and never could afford the pieces that I was selling. I saw a need there - a need for a jewelry line that looks and feels expensive, but doesn't cost a small fortune - this is why I decided to design, make and sell my own pieces. I want women to be able to afford beautiful, high quality jewelry, and most of all, I want them to feel beautiful wearing it."
Each bird's tail piece is handcrafted with the goal of making women feel beautiful and empowered. Meaningful, feminine, symbolic and powerful, the bird's tail designs incorporate semi-precious stones and 18k gold fill and sterling silver metals. Each piece of jewelry reflects a love and passion for sacred symbols, nature and geometry.
