Kristina was a joy to work with in creating my pink tourmaline ring. She answered every question in detail and exhibited tremendous patience with me as her customer. The workmanship and detail put into my ring is amazing! It's my first 18k gold ring so I am impressed by the weight. Kristina stayed patient with me as I struggled to decide between two of her beautiful cabochon pink tourmaline gemstones. I absolutely love the stone I picked for its uniqueness. The feel of the ring on my finger makes it clear that Kristina has been fully trained in her craft and is truly a professional jeweler. It fits like a glove and I don't think I've ever had a ring feel so good to wear! I'm not kidding! I absolutely love this ring! Well done, Kristina! And thank you! You will truly be happy with one of Kristina's creations. -Lesley

Kristina was a joy to work with. She is very detailed and keeps you informed all the way through the process. This ring is for my 50th wedding anniversary in May and I can't wait to wear it. IT IS BEAUTIFUL!! Highly recommend.

About

Unique wedding jewelry and custom design.

Since the beginning stages of my goldsmithing career I have had a love for exploring surface structures and I am fascinated with the effects that can be created just by working with the nature of the metal itself. I love to use and play with geometric and organic design elements. The outcome are often effects of simplicity and elegance, which lend themselves beautifully as a foundation for unique wedding design.

My second fascination are unusual gemstones - unusual either by their tone and strength of color, their brightness, or cut, or all of the above. Every summer I travel to Germany and Italy in search of beautiful stones that 'speak' to me and thus will inspire new creations...

I love what I do, and every morning I cannot wait to sit at my bench and start work. It is very important to me to take good care of my customers and I am honored to look forward to many years of exciting work.
