Hello, my name is Christine Lopez! I am a Designer, Enamelist, and Gemstone Cutter at my company Christini Collection where I create responsibly crafted fine enamel jewels. I am just starting out as a designer but I am enjoying the learning process and sharing my work.
My passions include gemology, geology, ancient art history, writing, herpetology, cooking, and exploring our oceans. I am interested in learning more about antique artisanal techniques, responsible manufacturing, and how I can become more involved with projects working towards creating a system of accountability for the colored stone trade.
I currently serve as the President-Elect & Vice President of Membership for the San Diego Chapter. I was humbled and honored to be the San Diego Chapter's 2018 Shinning Star.
