Kristin Diener, from Midwestern & New York-moved-Deep-South roots
and now a resident in the Southwest, walked into her first jewelry
class at a small Mennonite college in 1980. That casual but
auspicious beginning propelled her into an impressive career as an
artist and instructor.
After receiving her MFA in jewelry making and metalsmithing from
Bowling Green State University, Kristin has gone on to create bold
and distinctly original artwork. Her award winning metalwork has
been featured in various publications and
exhibited nationally and internationally. Kristin’s work utilizes a
variety of new and traditional silversmithing techniques which she
has been teaching for over 20 years.
