Handmade Jewelry

About us


We are Carolyn and Kristi and we have A LOT of hang ups. We are the founders and co-creators at Hang Ups Jewelry Designs where we hand-craft jewelry, cards, ornaments and more.

Hang Ups was born from our love of antiques, repurposed materials, retired instruments, clay, beads, wire and solder, and our strong entrepreneurial spirit.  We are both passionate about Literacy and the availability of music programs in our schools.  We are very proud of our partnerships with Literacy KC ( and Band of Angels (  A portion of the proceeds from our Literacy Kansas City and Band of Angels Collections go directly back to the respective non-profits.  If you are interested in helping out these amazing organizations please visit their websites ( & ).

We hope that you love our jewelry as much as we love creating it.
