The Kristin Company Story

 How the store came to be

This company was the culmination of my grandmother’s training in and love for Norwegian art, etched in brass. Grandma designed the ornaments and ran the business.  Grandpa ran the chemical etching machines and worked out the flow by which a sheet of brass would be given an image and then dipped in a chemical that ate away only part of the design.  The ornaments would then be buffed, coated, clipped out and packaged for sale.

There are still thousands of ornaments in stock. My father owns the business now and has graciously allowed me to partner with him and sell some of the ornament in order to raise money for publishing Jesus’ Unexpected Family Tree.  Thank you, Daddy!  All the ornament designs are available at his Ebay site.
