Our Work Family

CO-FOUNDER & FUTURE DESERT WEIRDO

 

What piece of clothing in your closet tells a story?
I kept the top I wore the night I met my husband at a rave in San Francisco in 1999: A green tank top by the brand Velvet.  I don’t wear it anymore, but it’s hanging in my closet because it still sparks joy.

Favorite Kris Nations piece:
The Happy Camper Necklace. I am at my peak happiness when I am traveling with my family in our Westy (Our VW camper) and exploring the desert, which reminds me of my childhood home in El Paso, Texas.



CO-FOUNDER & INTROVERTED EXTROVERT

 

What piece of clothing in your closet tells a story?
My silk dress. I bought it about a year after having my second baby. It felt good to splurge on something that made me feel pretty; where I could celebrate having my body back.

Favorite Kris Nations piece:
Third Eye Hoop Earrings. I love wearing hoop earrings and these are a fun spin on a simple hoop. Plus, the “third eye” is said to ward off evil spirits, so why not wear daily!

 


 

CUSTOMER SERVICE, ONLINE ORDER MANAGEMENT

What piece of clothing in your closet has meaning?
My blue, linen sundress is my absolute favorite because when I’m wearing it the air is warm, the sun is beating down on my shoulders, I probably have a cocktail in hand. I am happy and relaxed and life feels so sweet.

Favorite Kris Nations piece:
My big Silver Orchid Earrings are my favorite!  I won them at a raffle and I wore them proudly receiving many compliments along the way.  Little did I know that years later I would be lucky enough to earn a living sending awesome Kris Nations jewelry to women everywhere!

 


 

 

 

PRODUCTION ARTIST & PROUD MAMA OF 5 STRONG GIRLS

What piece of clothing in your closet has meaning?
My thrift shop bell bottom jeans. My girls and I die laughing every time we remember that my husband unwittingly tried to wear them to a party.

Favorite Kris Nations piece:
Simple designs speak to me. My favorite is the Love Necklace.

 


 

GRAPHIC DESIGNER & ROLLER GIRL

 

What piece of clothing in your closet has meaning?
My Chelsea boots. My husband had them imported from england’s oldest working shoe factory where they are still made by hand. I wear them almost every day.

Favorite Kris Nations piece:
I love the Large Heart Hoops. They are big enough that you can still see them when I am wearing my helmet at the skate park. Go big or go home!


 

PHOTOGRAPHER,
PRODUCTION ARTIST, INVENTORY & CRAZY CAT LADY
What piece of clothing has meaning?
I still wear the denim jacket that I bought with my own money as a teenager. It collects the pins of bands I’ve seen and loved over the years.

Favorite Kris Nations piece:
Ray of Sunshine Necklace. I love vintage inspired items with modern twists.




Sales Rep Extraordinaire & Everyone’s BFF


What piece of clothing in your closet has meaning?
My Boston Red Sox hat - I borrowed it from a good friend years ago (sorry, friend!), but I wear it almost every weekend. My dad was a huge Sox fan, so it makes me feel like I’m representing for him!

What is your favorite item in the KNJ collection?
My “RESIST” necklace. It’s more important to me now than ever to stand up for justice and kindness toward all, and I wear my Nasty necklace with so much pride.


 

 

PRODUCTION ARTIST & LISA-PEDIA

What piece of clothing in your closet has meaning?
I have an antique Japanese padded jacket that belonged to my great aunt. She founded the Contra Costa Co. Planned Parenthood Chapter and was our family’s feminist icon.


Favorite Kris Nations piece: I come from a long line of badass women. So naturally my favorite piece is the Badass Ring.



 

 


PACKAGING, SHIPPING & MASTER ORGANIZER

 

What piece of clothing in your closet has meaning?
A robe that I sewed out of a vintage chenille bedspread makes me smile when I look at it hanging in my closet.

 

Favorite Kris Nations piece:
I love the “Good Vibes” pendant necklace. I like the positivity it radiates and the physical reminder to be kind, smile and appreciate the goodness around you.


 

 

HR, BOOKKEEPING & BOSS

What piece of clothing in your closet has meaning?
My mom’s London Fog raincoat. I don’t wear it often because it comes down to my ankles — but I can't get rid of it.

Favorite Kris Nations piece:
“Ray of Sunshine” necklace. Because I’m a f*king ray of sunshine.



 

 

DIRECTOR OF SALES & GENERAL BADASS

 

What piece of
clothing in your closet has meaning?

My tea length pencil skirt has a traditional feminine silhouette, but the fabric, colors and pattern make it a bit tougher and slightly off balance. That’s my style: Tough femininity.

Favorite Kris Nations piece:
XL simple hoops. All day. All night.

 



 



OPERATIONS MAVEN & SNEAKERHEAD

What piece of clothing has meaning?
My sneaker collection. Adidas, Nike, Puma. My kids say, “Mom’s shoe game is strong.”


Favorite Kris Nations piece:
Medium Silver Hoops. Lightweight, versatile and awesome!

 


 


PRODUCTION ARTIST & BENDER OF METAL

 

What piece of clothing in your closet has meaning?
My leather jacket that I got five years ago. It was the last one in the store and luckily it was in my size. I tried it on, loved it, but I thought it was too expensive. A month later it was still there and on sale. I got it and it has been my favorite jacket ever since.

Favorite Kris Nations piece: Starburst Necklace, I like the elegant simple shape.
