Christina Atkinson Bexon Jewelry Designer About Me Modern Ethical HeirloomsModern Ethical Heirlooms by Christina Atkinson

Your story has value. The world needs to hear it. How are you going to share your story? How are you going to be remembered? What will your legacy be? 

The best pieces of jewelry tell meaningful stories. They celebrate life's biggest moments. They're a way to remember your loved ones who have gone before you. You wear jewelry like a second skin. It should be not only beautiful, but meaningful. 

As unique as your heritage, so should your jewelry be. 

If you're like me, you value originality. You cringe at the thought of wearing anything cheap and generic just because it's trendy. You value quality vs. quantity and gravitate towards things that are designed to last- to stand the test of time. You see the value in a well crafted individual piece of jewelry vs. mass produced trinkets that will end up in landfills. You value your personal individuality and want your jewelry to reflect you. I'm the same. I'm passionate about working directly with my clients to capture their unique stories and point of view and translate them into wearable works of art. 

I'm deeply honored every single time I get the opportunity to create a custom piece for my clients - a piece as beautiful and unique as they are. Through personal connection, I get to know my clients and weave their stories into their jewelry- jewelry that will become a treasured heirloom, a memento to be passed on and become part of your legacy. There is truly nothing more special to me than knowing I've helped them share their story in that way. 


Bexon Jewelry is an ethical fine jewelry brand by designer Christina Atkinson. A Southern California native and lifelong artist, I first began making beaded jewelry in 2010 as gifts for friends and family. After taking a metal smithing course at a local community college, my passion for metal fabrication and jewelry design was ignited. I soon after acquired an internship with a local fine art jeweler, and later became her production assistant for two years. At the same time, I launched my first jewelry business, Duende Creations, a bridge line comprised of brass, silver, turquoise and other cabochon gemstones.

Over the years, I've had the pleasure of creating many custom pieces as well. In 2015, some good friends asked me to create their wedding rings. That first set sparked the fascination with fine jewelry for me, and as they say, the rest is history. In early 2019, I launched Bexon Jewelry. The name is an eponymous amalgam of my maiden and married last names, Bec and Atkinson.

Sustainability and ethical practices in sourcing and production are the fundamental tenets of Bexon. Recycled metals are used for all cast components, and all stones are at the minimum certified conflict free, KPCS compliant. I have a growing network of gemstone dealers who have also committed to partnering with ethical and fair trade mines around the world. My production partners are local small family owned businesses who have been honing their crafts for generations. My  commitment to sustainability is ongoing and I'm looking forward to pursuing new initiatives in the future such as becoming a fair-mined gold licensee. I also enjoy breathing new life into reclaimed gemstones via custom heirloom redesigns and one of a kind pieces.  My husband is also a business owner, designer and artist, and together we're creatively raising our three sons in sunny Huntington Beach, CA. 


With my debut collection, Initium, I set out to create strong, emblematic wardrobe staples that would integrate beautifully within your signature style. Initium, is aptly named for the Latin word which means “beginning”. Designed to be the foundation for a capsule jewelry collection, it’s comprised of classic wardrobe staples such as signet rings, hoop earrings, and medallion pendants. Versatile and effortlessly chic, they are at home among your treasured heirlooms and are destined to become the same.

On a deeper level, I wanted to create solid, timeless pieces that capture the essence of resilience and the spirit of rebirth, imbuing the wearer with a sense of strength and identity. I sought to portray the ideas of integrity, resilience and strength via whole, symmetrical forms and the contrast of rough texture and high polish. Life is a series of juxtapositions. We are not who we once were, but the trials we’ve experienced have shaped who we are now and who we are becoming. The development of character is an ongoing, lifelong process. This is reflected in the collection by the persistence of rough texture with glimmers of high polish that peeks out, like little glimpses of hope of a brighter tomorrow. The subtle placement of pavé set diamonds at the intersection of the ‘X' form on many of the pieces is symbolic of the idea that it’s often through our trials and scars that the wisdom and beauty of experience are born into our character. It’s through learning to accept our past and pain as a part of our story, but not our identity, that we become truly stronger.

It’s my desire that when you wear Bexon Jewelry, it will serve as a reminder of the importance of forgiveness and acceptance, for yourself and others. When you see them sparkle and feel their weight, I hope that they will be worn as tokens of resilience, emblems of grace, and beacons of hope.


Each piece was individually hand carved in wax before being cast locally in Los Angeles in recycled gold. The manufacturers I work with are small family owned businesses, and independent craftsmen who are always paid a fair wage. All stones are certified conflict free, Kimberly Process Compliant. I have an ongoing commitment to sustainability, and look forward to new opportunities to reduce waste and pollution and to better communities through my jewelry in the future. 

Timeless and classic, while simultaneously modern and relevant, Bexon Jewelry will stand the test of time, one day becoming a treasured heirloom for you to be remembered by. 

Your Jewelry. Your Reflection.
