Contemporary art has long been a catalyst for the work of jewelry designer Kristin Hanson. Having been an artist since she was a child and growing up in a family of artists, Kristin has a long history of exploring the vast possibilities of contemporary design. Accompanying Kristin’s passion for producing fine art is her considerable knowledge of popular culture and Pop Art. These interests often commingle in her collections by thoughtfully bringing together the visual components of Pop with the theoretical underpinnings of its history.
Her transformative designs have won her critical acclaim including the coveted Couture Award as one of America’s top designers as well as the esteemed Platinum Fashion Innovation Award, garnering international recognition as a leader in the fine jewelry industry.
For over a decade, Kristin has been a dedicated educator nurturing the work of promising young talent in jewelry design classes that she has initiated out her studio. She preserves classical European goldsmith techniques by hand fabricating each piece in colorful gold alloy and platinum. Kristin's creative philosophy embodies contemporary signature forms carefully designed to accentuate the innate beauty of rare natural color diamonds, of which she is a specialist.
For Vogue Italia, Kristin’s interests in Pop Art are brilliantly illuminated in her piece titled, “An ode to Wayne Thiebaud” where she gives a poetic nod to the godfather of Pop Art with this decadent, diamond-studded Donut Choker. Made from Harmony recycled platinum, lab-grown diamonds and a tagua nut, this piece continues Hanson’s mindful use of sustainably sourced materials in her work.
