Kristin Hanson knew she wanted to make the world a little more beautiful with her designs since she was a young child. This passion only grew with time, driving her to study classical European jewelry for more than six years. Having studied in Colorado under legendary master goldsmith Harold O’Connor, Hanson later traveled to Florence, Italy to study with goldsmith Giampaulo Babbetto. Upon returning to New York once she completed her studies, Hanson’s passion for architecture and luxury were at an all-time high, breathing new life into her already celebrated designs. Since launching her brand, Hanson has explored femininity using precious metals and stones in exciting new ways. By combining contemporary designs with classical European goldsmith techniques, Hanson achieves innovative aesthetics that accentuate the natural beauty of the materials she uses. Her latest achievement, the Platinum Fashion Innovation Award at JCK in Las Vegas is just one of many achievements by this world-renowned designer.
