Cristina Bloom of Etten Eller perfected her jewelry making skills while a student at the School of the Art Institute in Chicago. Inspired by a collection of pieces that she glimpsed inside a watchmaker's desk, Cristina creates delicate jewelry from the inner workings of pocket watches. Etched plates, gears and watch hands allow for simple and beautiful designs.
