Chrishana Manigan・ Jewelry
Chrishana Manigan is a Fashion Design student at the University of Cincinnati College of Design, Architecture, Art and Planning (DAAP). Crishana is based in Milford, Ohio. She is a jewelry designer whose work embraces a minimal aesthetic by creating structural silhouettes with metal. Taking inspiration from her sketches, Crishana forms by hand using sheet metal and wire to manipulate an original flat dimension. The use of hammers, files, and flame help to create scale through shapes and movement in lines.The resulting work is an exploration of jewelry as lightweight wearable sculpture. She produces her modern earring jewelry collections through her design company, Cris & Shawn.
