Our Story (About Ahimsa Designs)
Ahimsa Designs by Kristen Anderson is a conscious jewelry company designed to bring awareness and promote positive change while causing the least harm to the planet. The principle of ahimsa, the avoidance of violence or doing no harm, guides every aspect of our company. We specialize in sterling silver jewelry with a message to inspire you to be your most authentic, fulfilled self. When we create a fulfilled life, we have the power to change the world.
All pieces are handcrafted from recycled sterling silver sheet or wire using traditional metalsmithing techniques. We purchase only fair-trade gems and silver components. We use recycled packaging material. We intentionally avoid using materials that require new mining of the earth or support unethical working or trading conditions.
Kristen’s designs come out of personal experiences and stories. Her love of philosophy, poetry and her passionate beliefs can be seen in her collections. By realizing that we are all connected, we help lift each other up. It is our hope that our jewelry will inspire you to love fully, live boldly and bring peace and light to the world around us.
