Kris Lanae

Kris Lanae Binsfeld is a jewelry, wire and multimedia artist residing in Cold Spring, Minnesota. Kris admits to being a jewelry junkie and has spent a majority of her life collecting, altering or creating jewelry.  In 2007, prompted by her friends, Kris started selling her jewelry which led her to start Cherish Designs by Kris Lanae.

Happily married to her husband Tom for 19 years they love to spend family time with their three children Kya, Sawyer and Keegan (11, 12 & 13). They share a strong love and dedication to their kids, who took years to come into their lives. Much of their time is spent supporting their children in hockey, boy’s choir, volleyball, baseball, swimming, and softball.

From her childhood love of digging in the woods to unearth vintage glass and plates from a dumping ground, to spending hours in her Grandparents Attic listening to music on the old phonograph while scrounging through the worn and tattered collections of her families mementos, journals and artifacts, Kris has a passion for vintage and found objects. She remembers begging her Grandma’s to play dress up with their costume jewelry. Her parents filled their home with antiques and unique collectibles and instilled in her an appreciation of antiques.

When creating with wire, Kris is inspired by antiques, vintage and unique finds. Kris loves a good patina and she seeks to combine the essence of vintage treasure and upcycle them into a new and trendy love.

She enjoys creating on the go, blogging at, teaching classes and inspiring others. Kris’ original, one of a kind jewelry is sold in local boutiques and on etsy. She has a line of coastal themed jewelry licensed with Demdaco/Silvestri and is excited about her launch of her vintage inspired line… Kris is one of three artists featured in the Creative Co-op: Embellish line of jewelry.

    Dear Kris,

    I Love Your Products!

    I have a small shop in Tennessee called Spin Vintage. My store is all about an appreciation for old stuff – mainly from the 20thcentury. I find most of my current inventory through estate sales, auctions, thrift stores and consignments.

    I am moving to a new location and I want to expand my offerings to include a variety of items made from recycled or re-purposed materials.

    I found your blog through the creative connection and would like to learn about becoming a wholesale purchaser.

    Web site is under development. Domain name is

    Please let me know more about your wholesale opportunities.
