Artist Profile: Kristina Johnson of Quirks & Twists

Flock and gather collective is pleased to introduce Kristina Johnson of Quirks & Twists who who will be showcasing her Vintage inspired jewelery at the April 30th market.

In her words:
I am a local independent artist who creates unique handcrafted jewelry using reclaimed vintage pieces, metals, gemstones, glass and whatever else comes my way.

I have always been drawn to handmade art; I’ve been crafting and making things since childhood – one of my earliest memories is painting with my grandma. I am self-taught and have been designing and making jewelry since 2003. I started with the basics and quickly discovered my love for beads, beads and more beads! My styles have changed over the years and I am now primarily working with vintage pieces which I combine with new materials resulting in one-of-a-kind pieces.
