Designing limited edition and one-of-a-kind custom accessories is my passion

Kathy Bristol


From the start, an enthusiasm for wearable design

I began my design studio in Moss Beach, California in 1987. Seven years later I launched a mail order catalog to share my collection of beads and findings with a national clientele. In 1998, I opened Personal FX Showroom in Half Moon Bay to thrill clients with extraordinary wearable works-of-art.

Custom creations

My love of exotic, provocative and sensual shapes is reflected in each neckpiece, brooch or earring that I create. The designs are inspired from ethnic materials complimented by modern form.

Numerous pieces have found their home with private collectors throughout the United States and Europe.
