Kristi Zevenbergen

“I use elements in my pieces that to me, deserve preservation and in some cases should be honored…Encasing these elements in metal provides strength and preservation for the otherwise insignificant and maybe delicate item. The presentation gives a heightened sense of importance to the item and in a sense preserves the item for all time.”

 

Kristi is a CPA who came to metalwork and jewelry arts in the early 2000s, taking courses at Pratt Fine Art Center. Her work is included in many galleries across Washington and in national publications such as Art Jewelry Magazine and Metalsmith.
