KERSTIN KALLIN

Kerstin Kallin lives in Stockholm, Sweden. Her speciality is crowns for brides, an old swedish tradition. The first crown she made was for her own wedding in 2007, and she was immediately hooked. Since then, she has started to make other kinds of jewelry as well and has started her own company named Kronbruden, www.thecrownbride.com.

Kerstin works in many different techniques, from silversmithing to stitched jewelry with seed beads. As a member of the Beadsmith inspiration squad she gets the opportunity to try new beads and make designs and patterns. The biggest source of inspiration is nature and plants, and her jewelry often has soft curves rather than strict lines.
