What Students are Saying..
I had the pleasure and honor of working with Kristin through her Ijewl mentorship program, and I enjoyed every minute of it. Kristin is such a talented designer and expert in the jewelry industry, that thanks to her guidance I was able to achieve my first collection, and could not have not done it without her. From the early stages of inspiration, design until the very last steps of production, I valued her insightful advice and knowledge. I learned a lot working with her, and sincerely recommend her Ijewl mentorship program for any jewelry designer ready to take one step further in the industry.
