is a Spitfire Girl favorite. We love that it’s handmade in LA, and influenced by juvenile jewelry and accessories crafted in the 1940s–1970s. Many of the components are even designed from genuine vintage molds and imprints. We reached out to owner and creator Alex Hillson, and asked her a few questions about her vintage-inspired jewelry and accessories line.
Here at Spitfire Girl, we love unicorns. Not only are they magical, they represent courage, grandeur, wisdom, and nobility—all of the traits of a badass Spitfire Girl.
The history of the unicorn is also super interesting to us. According to legend, only a virgin can catch a unicorn. The original engraving pictured above is from the 15th century and shows the “capture” of the unicorn. And by golly did she capture a good one! It has the same face as Spitfire Girl’s new unicorn enamel pin.
The common depiction of the dreamy, white unicorn as we typically know it developed from narwals being hunted and having their tusks sold as magical unicorn horns. It was believed their horn had the power to render poisoned water potable and to heal sickness. Wow!
But with most symbols and badass creatures, the unicorn also has a dark side. The mythology of a dark, menacing unicorn developed from tales associated with the dangerous and mean-spirited wooly rhino.
The unicorn also has frenemies. In Babylonian folklore from 3500 BC, the lion and the unicorn hate each other. However, the unicorn and lion seem to have reconciled, as they make an appearance together on today’s British coat of arms. The unicorn as a symbol of goodness and honor, and the lion as a symbol of courage and strength. Aww, BFFs.
It’s no surprise that the unicorn’s grace, combined with its wild side, makes it a favorite for us at Spitfire Girl.

Kristin Schroder is the original Spitfire Girl, a Texas craft genius who through her keen eye, careful curating, and unstoppable drive to create, has successfully launched the Spitfire Girl brand.
For Kristin, creativity has always been paramount in her life. Even with two small children there was never a choice when it came to making art – it was a part of her daily ritual. As she puts it now, “Wake up, make art!”
Around that same time, Kristin sent out birthday invitations for one of her daughters in the form of a funky little box with a note and a lizard toy inside. The children and parents were so tickled by the little box cards that Kristin knew she had to run with the idea.
With her background in design and experience in the fine arts world, Kristin turned to the gift market with her box cards and thus Spitfire Girl was born. Spitfire Girl grew rapidly but truly hit it’s stride when Kristin met her now husband Jason, seven years ago.
Kristin’s design aesthetic and eye for trends, and Jason’s illustrative prowess, from his background as a tattoo artist, made for a winning combination. Within two weeks of meeting each other they came up with the “cheeky fortune cookie line,” which was immediately picked up by retailers across the US.
With two beautiful retail stores in Los Angeles and a burgeoning online business. Kristin and Jason continue to create fun new products, setting new trends, and growing the Spitfire Girl Brand.
