Put a cork in it!

Looking for creative inspiration, Kristina stumbled upon some wine corks one day in the winter of 2011 and started thinking about the possibilities...

Kristina's love of animals led her to make the first ever Cork Creation - a dog figurine named "Proto." The items in the shop are now many and are forever growing in number. Kristina enjoys the challenge of creating new works and is always learning new ways to manipulate and experiment with the remarkably versatile material of recycled corks.

Upcycling is a powerful process and has always been very dear to Kristina's heart. The history behind objects is a fascinating concept and now the history behind each cork will be preserved in its new life as a work of art. Looking at the corks as she cuts, drills, wires, and glues them into something new, Kristina cannot help but reflect upon the journey that each has taken over its life - the people who drank the wine, the events they were celebrating, the memories, and the people's lives they will touch in the future in their new form.

Welcome to Cork Creations by Kristina!

All of my items are made from used wine and champagne corks. Corks are cut, drilled, wired, glued, and pinned by hand to form my unique collection of products. All product designs are original to Cork Creations. The corks I work with vary naturally, so as a result no two items are identical. Each product is a one-of-a-kind handmade treasure. If you have any additional questions about a particular item or would like more photos please contact me.

My goal is to give you the best customer service experience possible and exceed your expectations. Once your order is complete, please leave feedback on your order not only for other etsy users to see, but also so I may continually strive to provide the best service possible.

All items are hand packed with care to ensure their safe delivery. Each product is individually wrapped in bubble wrap. In my efforts to be eco-friendly, items are often shipped using recycled shipping materials such as recycled boxes and shredded paper. I encourage you to reuse these materials once you receive them and continue the cycle!

Your order will be shipped with a printed receipt of the etsy transaction, complete with pricing information. If your purchase is a gift, please let me know at the time of the transaction and I will gladly enclose a gift receipt instead (with no pricing information).

I will make every effort to ensure your order arrives when you need it to! Once you place your order, you will receive a personalized confirmation email from me outlining when your order will be shipped. Once it has shipped, you will receive a follow-up email confirming shipment and providing the expected date of delivery.

Shipping time varies depending on the item. See individual listings for details and contact me with any questions you may have. Please note that custom orders require an additional 5 - 7 business days.
Additional policies and FAQs
Custom orders are always welcome and encouraged! Whether you would like a slight change made to a pre-existing item or are looking for a totally new product made just for you, please do not hesitate to contact me for details.

The only way we grow is by trying new things, so I am always eager to work on new products and am up for the challenge!
