Kristin Hinkle Trainor is the artist behind 10-ton goldfish designs, a bespoke jewelry and wearable art studio in Newington, CT. Classically trained under renowned artist Leonard Urso at the prestigious School for American Craftsmen at RIT, and Pierre Schlevogt at the Fachhochschule für Gestaltung in Schwäbisch Gmünd, Germany, Kristin creates “fun & funky jewelry for EVERY body”. From simple explorations in line and form out of Sterling Silver and 14k gf, to playful explosions of color and contrast with non-traditional materials like recycled glass, anodized aluminum and hard enameled wire, there truly is something for everyone in her many collections. Her work can currently be found in boutiques, galleries, and shops around New England and the front range in Colorado. “When I was a small child I saw a picture of women from the Kayan Lahwi tribe who are known for wearing brass coil rings around their necks to lengthen them. From that moment on, I was intrigued by all the ways humans adorn themselves. Jewelry has been a part of human history for as long back as we can record. Jewelry can symbolize a rite of passage, provide protection as a talisman, depict social or relationship status or religion, be a form of expression, heritage, or even provide a functional element. I love the feeling of knowing something I made is being worn and enjoyed by someone.” - Kristin
