Kristine’s work represents jewelry as an exploration of lightweight metal constructions that move, shift, and collapse. Each piece is an experiment – created with hand fabricated and forged links, connected with moveable riveted joints. The jewelry as objects are both sculptural and kinetic, responding to the movement of the body that wears them. There is a playfulness and joy of discovery in each piece as they are picked up, handled, and worn.

Kristine Bolhuis has long been captivated by the chair designs of Charles and Ray Eames which were manufactured near her home in Michigan. Those chairs, and the work of Harry Bertoia, led her to study at Cranbrook Academy of Art, where she received her MFA in Metalsmithing. She lives in Michigan, surrounded by modernism in a 1964 home.
