On Etsy since 2017

French wire wrap artist living in the south of France. Creation of unique jewelry with gemstones, inspired by nature, Celtic & fairy worlds.

~~ Hello to all ~~

I am a jewelry designer, under the status of self-employedentrepreneur, located in the Montagne Noire, Occitanie, South of France.

I started creating jewelry and opened my Etsy shop in August 2017. I started with aluminum wire and glass beads. I stopped in December and I resumed in May 2018 with more noble materials ... Copper and gemstones!

I use the technique of wire wrap that is to say that I roll and braid together wires of different sizes around gemstones and pearls. This technique does not require glue or holes in the stones.

My stones are chosen with care. Some stones are dyed and in this case I specify it in the description of the item. My jewelry isguaranteed WITHOUT NICKEL, without cadmium and without lead. The hooks of earrings are made of niobium, a HYPOALLERGENIC metal for sensitive ears.

Once my jewelry is created, I give them a bath of sulfur solution to oxydize and give them an aged look that shows the details of the braiding wires and then I rinse well to remove all traces of sulfur.
Then I polish them by hand with very fine steel wool to make them look shiny. I photograph my jewelry myself and I take inspiration from the seasons to decorate the photos.

I took a lithotherapy course with Laurène Baldassara in Toulouse (France) to deepen my knowledge of healing stones. I can advise lithotherapy on request.

CRE'A FAN, comes from 'Crea' for Creation of course, and 'Fan' for my name Fany.

I find my inspiration in nature 🌼 Celtic culture 🍀 and the fairy world 🗝

Each creation is unique and worked with great care and love. I hope you like them!

Thank you for visiting my shop and supporting my small business through your purchases!

What are the jewels that cause allergies?

You can have several types of allergies to jewelry, it can be silver, zinc, copper, tin but most of the time the allergy that we have is due to NICKEL. Know that if you tolerate 18-carat gold, you will tolerate silver because silver is in its composition. Also if you wear jewelry said 925 it also means that you tolerate copper that is also in its composition. It happens that one is often allergic to plated jewelery because when the layer is removed with time, one immediately becomes allergic as soon as in contact with the plated metal which is often nickel.
NICKEL is therefore often RESPONSIBLE! Be careful because nickel is present in white gold.

Does COPPER jewelry cause allergies?

Copper jewelry does not cause allergy.
This metal is rather appreciated by its powers of circulation of energy. You can wear these jewels without problems.

The only problem is nickel because sometimes copper jewelry is also plated with this metal allergen. But the copper wire I use is guaranteed WITHOUT NICKEL.

The hooks of your earrings are in NIOBIUM. Is it a nickel-free, allergen-free and hypoallergenic metal?

If you are allergic or sensitive to certain metals, niobium hooks are a PERFECT option for you.
Niobium is naturally nickel free, hypoallergenic, very strong, durable and resistant to corrosion.
In fact, niobium is so unreactive that it is often used in surgeries such as knee and hip replacement and is extremely compatible with the human body.

What is Silver filled wire?

The Silver Filled wire that I now offer is a durable wire with a 10% 925 silver layer physically bonded to a copper base. It oxidizes with time (or with sulfur of liver) like sterling silver.
This is certainly not the same as silver plated, which is a very thin layer of silver applied to a copper base. It is coated with an anti-tarnish layer and therefore does not oxidize.

The applied layer is thick enough to resist small nicks and never wears out.
If you are allergic to silver-plated but are able to wear sterling silver, you should also be able to wear Silver Filled without causing an allergic reaction.
