Introducing Young Frankk

Posted by Myth & Symbol Team on

Young Frankk Christine Young
Meet Christine Young, the visionary and "hands" behind Young Frankk, a handcrafted jewelry line based in Richmond, Virginia. After conquering Parsons School of Design with a major in Illustration, Christine ventured into metals as another art medium to have under her belt. Though she never wore much jewelry herself, she took a liking to designing her own pieces and in 2012, Young Frankk was born. We've always been awed by Christine's unique way of finding the perfect balance between a minimal, yet bold statement piece. So much so, that we wanted more details on her and Young Frankk. Check out our interview with Christine Young below. We couldn't be happier to welcome the line to the Myth & Symbol family.

Is there a back story behind the name Young Frankk?
Young Frankk is my grandfather's name backwards -  Frank Young.

Where do you pull inspiration from for your designs? The hands are your signature look. Why hands?
I pull inspiration from a variety of sources, whether its paintings, illustrations, sculptures, interior design or architecture. Whatever catches my eye. The Hands were a happy accident. While designing and brainstorming designs for the collection, I was playing with wire designs and this came out of experimenting. 

Do you have any personal style icons that you admire? If so, who?
My personal style is very practical, simple and actually kind of boring! I like to be comfortable and no fuss. I wish I had more patience to dress sensibly but if I did I would I want to dress like stylist Sissy Sainte-Marie Chacon, she is goals.

When you’re not in the studio crafting these beautiful pieces, what are you most likely doing?
I am most likely watching scary movies, hanging out with family and friends or hopefully committing to one of my new years resolutions such as reading or painting/drawing more.

If you had to walk out of the door with only one accessory, what would it be?
A good pair of bold statement earrings.
