Variya's Profile

About

I started making jewelry for myself when I developed a metal allergy and couldn't find cool stuff that I could wear. Then I began creating jewelry as gifts for family and friends. My sister-in-law insisted for a couple years that I try to sell my designs, which I was a little apprehensive about because I didn't know where to begin. When I found Etsy and decided why not - they make it so easy! I decided that I wanted to create in a style that was hip, edgy and unique, and I used my middle name, Variya, because I thought it really embodied that - my Dad created that for me.

A lot of my work is one of a kind, because I love to create new designs and easily get bored with doing the same thing! I describe my style as vintage-mod, and I specialize in custom work, which I have done a lot…

I started making jewelry for myself when I developed a metal allergy and couldn't find cool stuff that I could wear. Then I began creating jewelry as gifts for family and friends. My sister-in-law insisted for a couple years that I try to sell my designs, which I was a little apprehensive about because I didn't know where to begin. When I found Etsy and decided why not - they make it so easy! I decided that I wanted to create in a style that was hip, edgy and unique, and I used my middle name, Variya, because I thought it really embodied that - my Dad created that for me.

A lot of my work is one of a kind, because I love to create new designs and easily get bored with doing the same thing! I describe my style as vintage-mod, and I specialize in custom work, which I have done a lot of apart from Etsy. I love creating the perfect design for a wedding and seeing how happy a bride is to have the jewelry she dreamed of for her perfect day. I also love creating a custom piece for a birthday surprise - it's so much fun!

I opened my Titanium Collection after I tried the metal myself and found that I was able to wear earrings again after 8 years! It is so much fun, like a whole new world of fashion opened up! I use only grade 1 PURE Titanium, so you can rest assured it is the best and you are not likely to have reactions. If you find that your ears are too sensitive for Titanium, I suggest you try my Niobium earrings alternatively. My Niobium Collection consists of earrings that are also pure, with no alloy. I've tested these out myself as well! It is rare that someone reacts to both metals. I will be happy to work with you if you buy one and find that you do have a reaction, and we would work that out via email variyajewelry [!at] gmail.com, or etsy convo.

A lot of my pieces here are one of a kind and cannot be re-listed, if you have seen something you love and it's no longer here, contact me. I can make you something similar to your first love. I do my best to accommodate my clients, so please feel free to request any adjustments to your liking. If you have any questions, or see something you like but want it in a different color or metal, feel free to contact me.

My motto is "just because you can, doesn't mean you should" and I think that keeps a continuity to my designs. I also enjoy working with people, so please contact me with questions, comments, or custom designs. I hope you like what my shop has to offer!
