Kristy Titus wearing jewelry from her collection, made by Montana Silversmiths
We got in touch with Kristy Titus, an icon in the hunting and conservation world, to chat about her newest venture with Montana Silversmiths: shiny, pretty, and adventure-inspired jewelry for women who cherish (and pursue) the wild.
For our Murdoch’s customers who may not know you, give us a quick rundown on who you are and what you do.
I was raised leading a pack string of horses and mules into the backcountry of Oregon, experiencing the thrill of public land, fair chase, do-it-yourself western big game hunting.
Currently, I serve on the NRA Board of Directors, the NRA Hunting and Wildlife Conservation Committee and am an RMEF Life Member. As a Basic Pistol, Refuse To Be A Victim Certified Instructor, Range Safety Officer and competitive precision rifle series shooter and avid hunter, I serve as a brand ambassador for many companies in the firearms and archery industry including Ruger, Nightforce Optics and Obsession Bows to name a few.
I host a digital television series called “Pursue The Wild” that airs on Amazon TV, YouTube and RMEF’s Elk Network.
You’re clearly well-known in the world of hunting, conservation, and firearms. What are you up to right now?
I just completed a DIY, public access archery mule deer hunt where I was able to harvest a gorgeous velvet buck. My dad and I are now gearing up to go on a DIY public land archery elk hunt in our home state of Oregon where we will be packing into the backcountry on horseback for a week. Wish us luck!
How did you get involved with Montana Silversmiths?
My mom has been wearing Montana Silversmiths jewelry from the time I can remember. They have always been part of my family. When I decided to launch my own jewelry line, I went straight to Montana Silversmiths to create family keepsakes that would be passed down.
So, tell us a little more about your line with Montana Silversmiths and what inspired your designs?
The designs were crafted to be worn by women who have a love of the outdoors and fashion. Each piece captures a sentiment that outdoor women hold dear: an elegantly arched antler, the stunning scenery found in the mountains like the natural stones of turquoise, made with Swarovski zirconia and animal tracks found along the trail. I wanted to create a collection of jewelry that not only made women feel beautiful but also reminded them of their time spent outdoors with family and friends while they pursue the wild.
What are your favorite pieces?
Each piece has been designed to be worn in a variety of settings. Some pieces are small glimpses of the outdoors that can be worn anywhere, like the Another Mountain turquoise earrings and necklace collection. The simple addition of the ring and bracelet tells a beautiful outdoor story that can be worn anywhere or coupled with larger statement pieces. If ladies want a more brilliant look, the Swarovski zirconia and fresh water pearls found in Crossing Paths and the Dew Drop Discovery collections is sure to add shimmer to any event.
Will you continue to expand your line with Montana Silversmiths? What’s on the horizon with your partnership with them?
To continuously keep the collection fresh while capturing the essence of my adventures, we are already working on new designs for spring 2019.
