Today we’d like to introduce you to Christina Grace.
Christina, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
My name is Christina Grace, the Owner and Designer at TIN HAUS. With my partner Cedric at the helm, 2016 marks the beginning of TIN HAUS Fine Jewelry. With a background in jewelry, fine arts, and the film/television industry, the company’s formation was inspired by a profound desire to use our gifts and talents for change. Our grassroots efforts first caught media buzz when Presidential Candidate Bernie Sander’s wife Jane Sanders proudly acknowledged The Bern Necklace©, a pendant I designed and handcrafted to help raise funds for Bernie’s campaign.
Next a collaboration with Make a Film Foundation (MAFF), a non-profit organization that helps young terminally ill people realize their filmmaking dreams, has allowed us the opportunity to make sterling silver pendants for the whole cast and crew of their recent film The Black Ghiandola – starring Johnny Depp, Laura Dern, David Lynch and J.K. Simmons, and directed by Catherine Hardwicke, Sam Raimi and Theodore Melfi – as gratitude for loaning their time and talents. That pendant, named the “I AM,” was the cornerstone for our first collection, Rise, which launched in June. There’s more to our story, but that’s the gist. A thorough version can be read by going to our website.
We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
The only challenge I had was figuring out where to place myself in this industry. In 2017, it became clear that I wanted to be a Jewelry Designer and to have my work be truly my own. Aside from that, everything my business has experienced so far has been amazing and synchronistic.
We’d love to hear more about your business.
TIN HAUS®️ is contemporary fine jewelry that creates change and empowers through art. Sustainably made by Christina Grace, we celebrate individuality with a message of love for yourself and others.
What were you like growing up?
Growing up, I was a hardcore artist which meant I was shy and awkward during my early years. For a huge chunk of my life, my focus in the fine arts have been in the realm of painting and acting before getting started in jewelry design.
