Krista Bermeo Studio

“My goal is to make light itself wearable,
so my vision for jewelry design is: Keep it light.”
Krista Bermeo began her career designing jewelry for The Children's Museum of Indianapolis in 2005, initially focusing on playful organic forms captured in molten glass using gravity and dental tools to form desired shapes.

Though she now produces jewelry primarily for adults, Bermeo’s designs are still characterized by her fascination with light and an aesthetic balance between elegance and play. She creates delicate shapes reminiscent of diatoms, dewdrops, pebbles, twigs, and bits of magnified sand. Recently, she has collected shards of broken glass left after her home city of Indianapolis was roiled by civil unrest; she softens the edges of each fragment under her torch to create unique constellations of time and place.
Krista Bermeo's work has been featured in diverse retail settings, such as the shops at Corning Museum of Glass in New York, the Phillips Collection in Washington, DC, The Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, The Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh, The Philadelphia Museum of Art, The Indianapolis museum of art, The Children's Museum of Indianapolis, and the Chrysler Museum of Art.

All of her work is completed in her studio located in downtown Indianapolis.
