Parc celebrates the arrival of Kiki Koyote, the work of Minneapolis native, Kris Singleton. All of the jewelry for Kiki Koyote is made by hand in Kris’s home studio in Minneapolis, MN. Each unique piece is special enough to stand alone, yet simple enough to be worn every day or with other jewelry.
About Kris Singleton:
Kiki Koyote is the jewelry of designer and creator Kris Singleton. All my work is made by hand in my home studio in Minneapolis, MN.
About four years ago I was diagnosed with a rare and agressive form of cancer. In an instant the inertia of my life came to a screeching halt and I understood with a painful clarity that my days were not inevitable and tomorrow was not a guarantee. This realization was terribly powerful and hugely influential in shaping me. I understood that today is everything, it is all we have, and it, in all its ordinariness, contains the whole of our purpose.
Kiki Koyote was born out of this experience. After chemo ended, I took a metalsmithing class and fell in love with the process. Making settled me squarely in the moment. It transported me to the simplicity and presence I had lived while I was sick. It made me feel at home and the act of making itself rang so true to my soul. Metal work was and is an absolute gift to me. It puts me in touch with another world and reminds me that each moment is a gift, an infinite potential just waiting to be born and transformed by our mindful presence and a nurturing love.
