Bilonda Mireille Pappas is an abstract painter from the Democratic Republic of Congo who presently lives in Seattle. Inspired by just about anything that surrounds her, varying from moods, to her young daughter. Her favorite medium to paint with is oil. Anything from bold bright colors, to soft neutral and black and white colors.
Inspired by the beauty of all things vintage and passionate about living a fair trade, eco-friendly, sustainable life; Krissy realized that by using discarded vintage jewelry components and beads she could create new fashionable pieces. Her career as a jewelry designer began when she discovered that other people appreciated her creations and wanted to wear them. In 2007, looking to make Orange Box jewelry holistically sustainable, Krissy began a line of jewelry using fairly traded sterling silver clasps and ear wires from a small cooperative in Bali, Indonesia.
