Betty Barbs™ was established in 2014. The line is designed with a bold, contemporary, minimal aesthetic. Betty Barbs™ was founded by Kristin Elizabeth Barbaree. Kristin named the brand for half of her middle name and half of her last name. "I need an alias! I am too shy."
Kristin attended OCAD University for her BFA, and then went on to complete a 3 year advanced diploma at George Brown College in Jewellery Arts.
"I started Betty Barbs™ when I was attending goldsmithing school. The projects in school had such strict guidelines, and Betty Barbs™ was a reaction to that. I just wanted to play and experiment. Design doesn't have to be so structured. I went to jewellery school with the objective to start my own fashion jewellery line, and that is what I have done."
Betty Barbs™ has been featured in Nylon Magazine, The Impression Magazine, and Cosmopolitan Magazine to name a few. The line is designed and made in Toronto, Canada at Betty Barbs™ Studios on Bathurst Street.
