Kristin Diener
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 30 years.
