Owner & Designer Kristin Klein’s artistic flair was confirmed when she was accepted to dance for the Boston Ballet Company at 11 years of age. After many years as a ballet dancer, she retired and majored in art and communications in college. “I have always been artistic and have always been enamored by the art and craft of jewelry design, a skill I learned through books, and experimentation. My labor of love began in 1991, when I acquired a piece of Pyrite from New Mexico. Once in hand, I turned it into my first unique necklace creation.
One day in 1995, while working as the manager of a small gift boutique, I was wearing the pyrite necklace I had made. The owner complimented me on my unique necklace, and when I told her I made it, the owner offered to sell my necklaces in her store. Later, I branched out on my own selling my necklaces to gift and clothing boutiques, and to family and friends. I opened KVK Designs Natural Stone Jewelry & Unique Gifts (www.kvkdesigns.com) in the spring of 2000 to bring together my love of art, natural stone jewelry design, boho style and fair trade.
