About

Welcome to KC's Kreations, where all items are individually designed and handcrafted. Thank you for stopping by. I invite you kick off your shoes, grab a cup of proper tea, and browse through the store, where you will find creations made from upcycled denim and other fabrics, unique findings and embellishments. No two items are ever alike, so you will never meet someone else wearing the same item.
As a native Texan, I am retired from the nine to five world, and now have the wonderful opportunity to become a crafter/artisan who can design and create all the inspirations that I used to only dream about while attending board meetings and doing boring stuff like creating P & L statements.
I love the idea of repurposing fabrics and other embellishments, so a lot of my creations incorporate these eco-friendly ideas. Ever since I was a little girl, I have had a passion for glass beads and gem…

I love the idea of repurposing fabrics and other embellishments, so a lot of my creations incorporate these eco-friendly ideas. Ever since I was a little girl, I have had a passion for glass beads and gem stones, especially the history and methods of making beads into those wonderful, glittery, heavenly colors of glass orbs that capture the imagination. I lovingly remember my Mother and Grandmother wearing those fabulous earrings and multi-strand necklaces made from faceted rhinestones, lampwork and aurora borealis beads that were so fashionable in the 1950's. They also wore artisan sterling silver and turquoise jewelry from the American Southwest and Mexico. I thought I was a diva when I received my first piece of Native American made, sterling jewelry at the age of 10!
All items are crafted in an eco-friendly, smoke free and pet free studio. My husband and I are owned by an adorable and loving, five-year-old Red Heeler dog, named Buddy; but he is not allowed in my studio and stays with his "Dad" in his office.
If you have any questions regarding any of the items, please feel free to convo me.
