Years after her business started as a one-woman show, Hannah Design?s eponymous founder, owner, and resident jewelry maker still has a full plate of responsibilities since she expanded. Beyond hand stamping jewelry for customers around the country, she?s a full-time mother and a teacher for children with disabilities. Yet, what might seem like an overwhelming schedule doesn't wear on the designer. In fact, her life seems to inspire her jewelry.
Necklaces and bracelets feature sterling-silver, copper, and brass pendants hand-stamped with the name of a child, a spouse, or even a pet. Specialty gifts recognize important?and sometimes underappreciated?people, including teachers, military personnel, and the Sandman. To raise awareness, Hannah prints intricately shaped breast-cancer ribbons and "Autism Speaks" logos across pendants, jazzing them up even further with birthstones.

Kristin Hanson began her journey toward fine jewelry-making mastery by walking down a path less traveled. Raised in a home where expression was encouraged, she spread her roots to the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. Then she took a leap. She traveled to the wilds of Colorado to apprentice under master goldsmith Harold O'Connor, learning his nuanced, perfectionist techniques and method for training squirrels to be workshop assistants. Her studies then carried her to Florence and Tuscany before drawing her back to the East Coast.
Kristin's life-inspired works embody the contemporary with forms that highlight the innate beauty of her materials. Her trademark couture jewelry has caught the eye of such publications as Lucky and InStyle. In short courses and intensive programs, she hews to a teaching philosophy that fosters others' styles instead of encouraging copycats of her own. Except during special exhibits, Kristin handcrafts each piece in 60 Reade, her 6,000-square-foot Tribeca gallery, and specializes in conflict-free pink diamonds from an Australian mine.
