With her BFA in studio art, designer Christine Fail's background is firmly rooted in art and design. After 5 years working for two internationally renowned jewelry designers, Christine decided to realize all of her experience and expertise in her own vision. Each piece in the Fail collection is delicately handcrafted using sterling silver, 14K gold-fill, and brass in Christine's Austin, Texas studio. Christine employs classic metalsmithing techniques such as hand forging to form and shape delicate wire. Modern yet classic, Fail jewelry embodies the spirit of Austin with pieces that transition effortlessly from a t-shirt and jeans to the little black dress.
