Claire Kinder

Claire Kinder might have been studied the classic techniques on her way to becoming a goldsmith at the Pratt Institute, but she uses her knowledge of tradition to blaze her own trail. By taking simple lines and planes and masterfully rearranging them, Seattle-based Kinder has created her own world of jewelry, where rings can stack endlessly to create dazzling, interwoven stories of light and texture. Handle a Claire Kinder piece and you'll instantly understand why she works so hard to "make it like they used to."
