Owner and Creative Director of KVK Designs - An Artistic Journey in Design

Kristin Klein's artistic talent was evident at a young age when she was accepted to dance for the Boston Ballet Company at just 11 years old. After a career as a ballet dancer, she retired and studied art and communications in college. "I have always been drawn to creativity and have been fascinated by the craft of jewelry design, a skill I taught myself through extensive research and experimentation," Kristin said.

Her journey began in 1991 when she acquired a piece of pyrite from New Mexico. Inspired, she fashioned her first unique necklace creation. In 1995 while managing a small gift boutique, Kristin wore the handmade pyrite necklace. The owner was impressed by the one-of-a-kind design and offered to sell Kristin's pieces in the store when learning she was the creator.

 Kristin later launched her own line of jewelry sold to boutiques, friends, and select retailers. In 2000, she opened her first online store, KVK Designs Natural Stone Jewelry & Unique Gifts (, to share her passion for artistry, natural materials, and fair trade.

Today, KVK Designs is a destination for distinctive, handcrafted treasures. KVK Designs offers a carefully curated selection of jewelry, accessories, home goods and gifts made with care and attention to detail. Each unique find at KVK Designs reflects Kristin's vision of bringing personalized style and global artisanship to customers worldwide.

Kristin's journey demonstrates how following one's creative spirit can blossom into a life of purpose and positive impact.
