Announcement   Beautiful original jewelry designs, all hand-fabricated by Cristina Hurley. I have been a metalsmith and jewelry designer for over 25 years. I create small production and one of a kind pieces in silver and gold, and I also use precious, semiprecious and synthetic stones in many of my designs. All the pieces are created solely by me in my Massachusetts studio. I enjoy creating custom pieces and have done so for many clients over the years.
If you have an idea in mind for an original, custom piece of jewelry, feel free to contact me. I enjoy designing jewelry that is personal in nature, and for the client to have input in custom designs to make it a piece that is perfect for you or your loved one.
I also enjoy making one of a kind pieces that are special pieces designed to be collected and enjoyed by only one person, many of my pieces are one of a kind and collectible. I don't mass produce any of my pieces of jewelry, I make each one myself from start to finish.

Feel free to like my facebook page and see many of the custom designs I have created over the years in my photos:

Custom, handmade jewelry is a wonderful gift for all occasions. I also hand fabricate wedding bands, engagement rings, men's jewelry, bridesmaids jewelry, anything for that special occasion you need a great gift for!

I work in gold, and silver, and am open to recycling your old gold into new pieces of jewelry you will love to wear. I can also make new jewelry from stones you might have and family stones you want to recycle out of jewelry you don't wear anymore. Message me for more information!

All of the items in the shop are made to order unless otherwise stated in the titile as "ready to ship". Please allow at least 1-2 weeks for production and delivery. I always try to accomodate dealines though so don't be shy about messaging me with any questions or rush orders!

Thanks for looking and Happy shopping!

Absolutely a great buy. The quality of the material and details of the unerversal pattern was better than the picture and the inscription on the back just ties it all together. I bought two of the key chains as a gift and now I want one for myself :)

About

A passion for creating unique, handcrafted jewelry

Cristina Hurley was born and raised in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Both her parents are musicians, and she was strongly influenced by art and culture beginning at an early age. She was first introduced to metalsmithing when she attended a class in her senior year of high school. Jewelry designer Jeannette Fossas, who is a Rhode Island School of Design Alumnus, conducted the class. Ms. Fossas took Cristina on as an apprentice, and later suggested attending RISD to her. Cristinsa took the suggestion and graduated from the Jewelry Department there in 1996. After graduation, she moved to New York and worked for a prestigious goldsmithing company for six years, where she refined her skills.

Cristina’s current influences are architecture, with an emphasis on the Ancient Pyramids of Egypt and Central America, and nature, with special attention paid to butterflies, flowers, and weather patterns. She now dedicates herself to designing and fabricating her own original line of silver and gold jewelry. Of her work Cristina says, “I am a metalsmith and jewelry designer. I make fine, hand fabricated Sterling Silver jewelry with natural and synthetic stones. I have been making jewelry for 23 years and have a lot of experience in making custom orders for any occasion. I have made hundreds of custom orders over the years and really enjoy working closely with each client to create a beautiful unique piece to exact specifications.”

In 2010 Cristina opened her own studio and art gallery in Canton, MA where she sells hand-crafted custom jewelry items such as necklaces, earrings, rings, pendants and bracelets. Specific original collections that are available for sale include North Star, Diamond Clover, Obelisk, Pyramid, Falling Water, Hanging Garden, Butterfly, Mogul, Circle, Cascade and Mosaic. The gallery also offers a selection of vintage rings and Cristina performs repairs for jewelry.

Custom orders are always welcomed by Cristina and may be requested over the phone (917-825-4869) or via email (cristinahurley@hotmail.com). She also sells her work through area galleries and occasionally at craft fairs throughout New England. Retailers interested in carrying jewelry by Cristina Hurley may also get in touch by phone or email.

Hello, and welcome! I am a full time stay at home working girl. I quit my day job about 2 years ago to follow my dream of owning my own company. I have had my company up and running for about 5 years now, in Massachusetts. I am finally starting to grow, but trying to keep everything handmade by myself. Very little second hand work goes into my pieces; only some of the findings and chain links are cast, and they are all designed by me. I am always looking for the next custom order challenge, please feel free to come to me with your ideas for an original piece of jewelry! Wholesale orders are definitely welcome, please contact us to discuss via email and I will get back to you as soon as possible! I take great care and pride in creating unique jewelry for you. I specialize in custom hand fabricated jewelry and unique designs.


All of my pieces are shipped with a very nice box for gift giving, and a pouch for storing and protection of your artwork. Flat fee priority mail shipping on ALL pieces.

Losses are not included in this guarantee, but if you lose a piece and are very sad, we can discuss a good deal for replacement. Lost earrings- a mate can be remade for you at half the cost of the pair. Stones lost from wrapping and/or cracking are always replaced, when possible, at no charge.
