Kristine started her journey as a studio artist after graduation from Cranbrook Academy of Art in 1986. She creates fine art jewelry using combinations of unique gems and minerals, golds, silver and copper to fashion pins, pendants, earrings, brooches, bracelets and rings.
These one-of-a-kind pieces of art studio jewelry are fabricated using a wide variety of technical metalsmithing skills fused with exquisite design to illustrate a wildlife theme of the Boreal Forests.
Her visions of the northern forests and pristine waters are transformed into elegant portrayals of our mother earth.
Kristine exhibits extraordinary detail and craftsmanship by finishing both the front and back of each work of art.
