who we are
We are Travis + Christina, the husband + wife team behind Christina Nicole. We strive to be accountable for the materials we use, from sustainable metals, ethically mined stones, to recycled packaging. In all we do, we aim to do it well and with the utmost integrity.
in the studio
Our pieces are designed, crafted, and shipped from our home studio in Raleigh, North Carolina. Created to be functional, beautiful, comfortable, and cohesive, we utilize traditional metalsmithing techniques with a modern approach to aesthetics. Each piece is handcrafted, showing evidence of the process that refined and shaped it.
Choosing to be accountable for what we create + what we put out into the world, for us, translates to community over competition
A product of Savannah College of Art and Design, Christina is experienced in several mediums including: interior design, large scale sculpture, jewelry design and styling. She found her niche as a jeweler and has since, cultivated her original designs through CN. Her focus as a designer emphasizes the study of form and function. The small-scale platform and three-dimensional approach to jewelry has highlighted her ability as a designer to bring concept to reality in a clear and individual point of view.
With a background in marketing, Travis approaches three-dimensional design with a point of view fixed on approachable fluidity. Originally, he joined CN to manage the day-to-day logistics and administration work. Today, Travis also collaborates both in design and craft as he continues to cultivate his skills behind the bench. He is a sounding board and fine tuner of business and life while proactively expanding our brand and maintaining our daily structure.
