A Man After My Own Heart

Christine Guanipa combines bold, fresh fabrics with sturdy construction and handsome designs. Whether you've got lots to tote around or you prefer to carry around just the essentials, Little Man has just the right bag for you.

History in the Making

"The objects that I make are inspired by my past and historical references. Developed in the tradition and styles of the Victorian Era my jewelry focuses on ornamentation, symbolism and sentiment of my life. I predominately create these pieces by using traditional metalsmithing techniques such as lost wax casting, fabricating and enameling. These age-old traditions are linked back to the historical time periods that highly influence the conceptual aspects of my work."

Green as Glass

"I am a visual artist, sculptor, creator whose inspirations lie largely in the natural world, bodies and peoples’ stories and struggles. My media of choice are metal and glass, though I enjoy experimenting with others. With metal, I work expressively and intensely, creating a multitude of potential experiences for the viewer. It is often intimate, pulling in to it at the same time that it pushes us away."

enam·el: to cover, inlay, or decorate with enamel

"What I love most about jewelry is its ability to contain and spur memories. Nature is also an ideal muse, always different, always inspiring. I also love to work with color, so enameling is one of my favorite techniques. All of the jewelry is hand fabricated by me, using a wide variety of gold and silversmithing techniques."
