Kristine Kennedy's Profile

About

A career in film, television and theater production has taken me to such places as New York City, Los Angeles, New Jersey, Hawaii, and North Carolina, but I have found my home and inspiration in the Coastal Islands of Georgia, just outside historic downtown Savannah. My jewelry making is heavily influenced by the beauty that is the Lowcountry of Georgia and South Carolina. Walks on the beach, the cry of the seagull, and the playful dolphins have worked their way into several pieces. I try to capture the essence of sea foam, the marsh grasses under moonlight, the pull of the waves….

My other major influence was my experience working on the film The New World by Terrence Maleck as a crafts person. The ability to work with a large group of talented artisans, using unique tools, building techniques, and materials, while learning about the Native American culture was truly inspiring. My first piece was made from materials used on the film and inspired by the color palette of the movie. I wore that necklace to the cast and crew premier of the film and my passion for jewelry making, bead collecting, and story telling through art has grown unabated since. I also work in mixed media, collage and photography and intend to incorporate all of this experience into the jewelry pieces that I create for your enjoyment.

I have been creating art in one form or another since I was a child, and am constantly evolving and developing my style, medium and approach to craft. I look forward to sharing with you the ever evolving body of work as it develops.
