Artist Statement

Ethos: The Message is Love

The way One comes to appreciate the infusion of Spirit is to merge fully into the profundity of the moment, hence the creation of my art. My work represents my dance with the unconscious mind. 


From the time we are born, we have been taught how to think and act, to follow a mold society deems appropriate and to take the safe route. To be an Artist is freedom. My work has lead me to this experiential state of being by transcending conditioned beliefs, to break free from the self-imposed bondage of the Mind which holds one back from life. To get to this place of independence, I realized the profundity of self-acceptance and the importance of doing the internal work to evolve. Art is an extension of my continued growth and through jewelry I hope to inspire an awareness of compassion for oneself and to those around. When one embarks on a journey of service from a true place of love, it causes an alchemical chain reaction of inspiration among those who are open to receive it. Imagine a world where we could all thrive from this place of harmony. Therefore, we celebrate individuality. The message is love. To love yourself and others. 

  

The Designer

Christina Grace is a Los Angeles-based Artist and Jewelry Designer specializing in bespoke, contemporary designs in fine jewelry. She has a background in film and television as well.


Christina’s earlier career in the fine arts was focused in painting and acting. As a self-taught artist, she has been honing her craft since she was a toddler. Privately, she continued to sell her work not knowing her life will ultimately take a detour into the fine arts, specifically jewelry and metal fabrication. In 2011, Christina realized her potential as an art jeweler after a chance meeting with a metalsmith who taught her wire-wrapping technique. Naturally private about her art, Christina eventually mustered up the courage to take the plunge.

After a career transition, the year 2016 marks the beginning of TIN HAUS® Fine Jewelry.  Simultaneously, Christina enrolled back into college to deepen her understanding of the jewelry and metal fine arts. Shortly after, Grace’s ambitiously artistic and perfectly executed handcrafted designs - including a kinetic caterpillar ring - earned her one of the most sought-after scholarships to the Gemological Institute of America (GIA) where she received her Graduate Jeweler diploma. 


Christina’s passion for the arts coupled with a desire for service has caught media attention as well.  Her high profile endorsements started with political figures like Bernie Sanders’ wife Jane Sanders. Christina’s designs have been featured in a number of fashion magazines such as Vogue, Tatler, and Vanity Fair; and her acting and jewelry worlds also crossed paths when she was asked to be the official jeweler of the Make A Film Foundation (MAFF), a nonprofit organization that helps terminally ill young people realize their filmmaking dreams. When MAFF recently helped a 16-year-old cancer patient direct a movie starring Johnny Depp, J.K. Simmons, David Lynch, and Laura Dern, Christina made sterling silver pendants for the cast and crew – including directors Catherine Hardwicke, Theodore Melfi and Sam Raimi – as gratitude for loaning their time and talents. 


As a self-taught artist and seeing the progress she’s made so far, Christina ties the flow of opportunities to living with purpose. And with the training she’s received, she realized that earning a solid education in the metal arts can be instrumental to one’s workmanship, evolution, and success as an artist and entrepreneur.
