About Owner & Designer Kristin
Owner and designer Kristin Klein's creative flair was confirmed when she was accepted to dance with the Boston Ballet Company at 11 years of age. KVK Designs started with an idea and a necklace says Kristin. "I was an art major in college, and have always been enamored by the art and craft of jewelry design, a skill that I learned through books, jewelry making classes and experimentation. My labor of love began in 1991 when I acquired a piece of Pyrite from New Mexico. Once in hand, I promptly turned it into my first unique necklace creation. It wasn't long before many of my friends and family were buying my creations; they loved wearing my original designs."
While working as the manager of a small gift boutique in 1995, she was wearing one of her original pieces. When the owner approached her about where she had gotten her unusual necklace, she told her that she had designed it. That is when she had her first official order, and started designing necklaces for her store. Later, she branched out on her own selling her necklaces to gift and clothing boutiques.
Kristin launched KVK Designs (www.kvkdesigns.com) in the spring of 2000 to bring together her love of art and natural jewelry design to create jewelry pieces that are unique and beautifully made. "I love the exquisite beauty of nature as it expands and enriches the senses". Kristin's new line KVK Vintage, Antique Inspirational Skeleton Key Necklaces come from her love of anything vintage and antique skeleton keys. They can be found at KVK Vintage (www.kvkvintage.com) or on Etsy at https://www.etsy.com/shop/KVKVintage
