Handcrafted artisan jewelry by Kryzia Kreations
“Jewelry should be something you want to wear, not have to wear.
It should be a little bit romance, a little bit whimsical, and a little bit magic.
It should be a timeless treasure that makes you feel beautiful, confident, and sentimental.
It should be inspired by the things you love, cherish, and dream about, and sometimes it can transport you to a different place.”
~ Christina Paluszek-McClure

I believe that your jewelry should celebrate you and tell your own unique story. It's not only an extension of your personal style, but it should reflect something about you that makes you smile, empowers you in some way, and even reminds you of special people and moments in your life.

Passion and Inspiration
The inspiration for my jewelry designs comes from the simple beauty of nature mixed with the timeless details and look of antique jewelry. 

Spending time at my grandmother's Brooklyn, NY house always held magic for me.  Her backyard was home to a giant peach tree and all varieties of roses, flowers, herbs, and vegetables.  I would spend hours out there letting my imagination run wild, while I fell in love with nature and the beauty it has to offer. And if I wasn't out there, I was playing with her box of Art Nouveau jewelry which completely fascinated me because each piece was so ornate and detailed.  Her backyard and jewelry box became my own personal treasure chest filled with wonders.

Jewelry Design
Each of my handcrafted jewelry designs combines the timeless romantic style of antique jewelry often mixed with the whimsical elements of nature. All the pieces are created from sterling silver and various gold karats, that I saw, shape, sculpt, and then texture in various ways. I find nature to be the most inspiring subject. If you look close enough, whether it be a flower petal, tree bark, leaf, or even insects, there is all this texture that can go unnoticed unless you really look close enough. And it's this texture and detail that I strive to capture in my jewelry.

By incorporating multiple textures, intriguing gemstones, and intricately detailed metalwork, I aim to capture the beauty and delicacy of these two elements and entice the wearer to really investigate each piece, and discover its texture, personality, beauty and unique story. All of these elements unite an old-world feeling with a feminine whimsical mystique.

My hope is that whoever wears my jewelry feels the same magic and inspiration that I did as a child wearing my grandmother’s antique jewelry. I hope it makes you feel special and unique because you are not just another face in the crowd. You are you, and you should celebrate it!

Artisan Craftsmanship & Responsible Sourcing
I take pride in the fact that my jewelry is completely hand-fabricated by myself using traditional metalsmith techniques. As a self-taught jeweler, I fell in love with metalsmithing because it intrigued me that you could take something so cold and hard as metal, and form it into something so delicate, wearable and beautiful as jewelry.soldering

And, I have a strong belief that we should be kind to our environment, so I try to fabricate my jewelry in the most socially and environmentally friendly way possible. Each handcrafted piece is made from recycled precious metals, ethically sourced natural gemstones, and conflict free diamonds that are mined in accordance with the Kimberley Process and purchased from legitimate suppliers. When asked, I am happy to source lab-grown and recycled gemstones and diamonds as well since they provide no harm to the environment.  

My jewelry has been exhibited at many fine art and fine craft art shows, as well as sold through a number of art and craft galleries throughout the eastern United States over the past 20 years.  In addition to creating my limited edition, one-of-a-kind, and bespoke jewelry designs, I also have the pleasure to serve as the vice president of the Professional Association of Visual Artists (PAVA), am a dog mom to two crazy dogs, and live with my husband near the Gulf of Mexico in Largo, Florida.
