Handcrafted Sterling Silver Jewelry

Hi! Welcome to The Simple Slate! My name is Kristy Cartwright and I'm the artist behind the work! Each piece is designed and handcrafted by me in my studio in central Indiana. I love working with sterling silver to create simple, yet elegant pieces of work. I hope my work brings others as much joy as it does for me, when I create it.
