Kristin and her husband, Richard, met in college out at the foundry, while getting their Bachelor of Fine Arts degrees in sculpture. Kristin carves her original designs by hand in wax. Each piece is a tiny wearable sculpture; detailed studies of the natural world. Her work has been called love letters to nature. Together, Kristin & Richard make each piece from start to finish in their studio, using the ancient art of lost wax casting. The subtle imperfections and organic nature that casting can produce are what they are after. These makers marks are evidence that their pieces have been made by their own hands, infusing warmth and genuineness into their creations. They believe in crafting heirloom quality jewelry while being committed to practices that are environmentally friendly and sustainable.
