Iowa City Press Citizen "A Gem of a Career" Article Published January 11, 2013-by Alesha L. Crews

Rinner — who describes himself as a lifelong “rock hound” — always has been interested in rocks and gems, but his interest in jewelry making started in a high school art class.

Although it always had been more of a hobby, Rinner decided to pursue jewelry making full time after graduating from Iowa State University in 1970 with a degree in anthropology and spending four years working a series of jobs for the state of Iowa.

Through reading, practicing and working with other jewelers over the years, Rinner taught himself the tricks of the trade. He developed a specialty in mounting natural-colored gemstones and stones in 14k gold.

“I tend to do pretty clean lines, functional pieces,” he said. “I try to make pieces that people can wear and enjoy every day.”
