Gorgeous work; even lovelier than in the photos. I worked with Christina to do a custom piece for my wedding. She was quick, thoughtful, and professional, and the piece was exactly what I was hoping for. I got compliments all night on my jewelry. Shipped right on time and received it in plenty of time for the event. Would definitely purchase from her again.

Very pretty, has the vintage look I was going for (I have a pair of white gold and zirconia studs but they were too modern and shiny looking for the vintage necklace I wanted to pair them with), and arrived with time to spare! Thanks!

About

Handmade jewelry for the whimsically inclined!

I believe that jewelry should be something you want to wear – not have to wear.
It should be a little bit romance, a little bit whimsical, and a little bit magical.

In keeping with that idea, my jewelry designs combine the romantic styles of the Victorian and Edwardian eras, mixed with the whimsical elements of nature, myth and fantasy of the art nouveau movement.

All of my jewelry is handcrafted by me, using mainly recycled precious metals and ethically sourced stones. As a self-taught jeweler, I fell in love with metalsmithing because you can take something so cold and hard, and form it into something delicate, wearable and beautiful. You can add texture to it, color it, and shape it into any design imaginable. Creating precious metal jewelry designs with multiple textures and lots of tint detail became my passion. And with each piece, I aim to entice the wearer to investigate the intricate metal work involved, and discover its texture, personality and beauty through a unique mix of precious metals, gemstones, pearls and found objects.

My love of nature, fantasy and myth come from hearing and reading all those fairy tales you grow up with as a child, combined with playing in my grandmother’s amazing backyard flower garden. Her garden was filled with a multitude of flowers, roses, and herbs – including a huge peach tree – in the middle of Brooklyn, NY. What child with an active imagination who loved fantastical stories wouldn't develop a love nature and pretend mythical woodland creatures hid among the garden foliage?

Put it all together – and you get Kryzia Kreations!

I have been creating jewelry professionally since 1999, and I am proud to say that I have many happy customers all around the United States, Canada and Great Britain who have shopped with me at art festivals and trunk shows, bought my jewelry from galleries and off my website, or commissioned me to make a special design just for them.

To me, the greatest compliment is when someone incorporates one of my pieces into their own unique style. To know that the piece is being worn by someone who smiles every time they wear it, makes me truly happy.

    My work consists of several jewelry collections inspired by nature, fantasy and old world charm. I do it all - designing, creating, marketing, etc. My favorite part is that I get to do what I love - and I'm very grateful for it.

Welcome to the Kryzia Kreations Etsy shop!

I am a self-taught metalsmith who has been creating jewelry professionally since 1999, and I have many happy customers all around the country who have shopped with me in my booth at art festivals, and bought my pieces from galleries and my own website.

I take great pride in creating whimsical and romantic jewelry inspired by nature, fantasy, fairy tales, myth and romantic old world style. Each piece is individually handcrafted in my studio, using recycled precious metals and ethically sourced stones. I like to create designs that not only entice the wearer to really look at the design and investigate the detailed work involved, but also to handle it and discover its texture, personality and beauty.  Creating designs with texture and lots of tiny detail is my passion - and I hope you like it too!

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
I accept PayPal and all major credit cards through Etsy's Direct Checkout for payment.

Florida residents will be charged 7% sales taxed (shipping fees are not taxed.)

I do not accept personal or business checks, money orders or wire transfers for payment.
Shipping
*********** DOMESTIC SHIPPING ************
Every order is gift-wrapped and shipped in a rigid mailing box. For domestic shipping in the United States, I ship through USPS Priority Mail which is typically delivered to U.S. destinations in approximately 2-3 business days, but this time frame is not guaranteed by either me or the post office. If your package does not arrive within this 2-3 day window, your shipping fee is not refundable. This service offers $50 insurance by the post office in case of damage or loss. If you require additional insurance, upgrades are available at time of purchase. Kryzia Kreations is not responsible for lost packages or those that are uninsured.

If you need to expedite your shipping faster, I do offer Express Mail which is overnight delivery to most U.S. destinations. This service offers $100 insurance by the post office in case of damage or loss. If you require overnight shipping, please contact me before you pay for your purchase so that I can give you a shipping cost estimate and add the cost onto your listing(s). If you forget to do this during checkout, you can also contact me before I ship your order, and I can invoice you separately for these charges. Please note: Any jewelry that is listed as "Made to Order" can be shipped by Express Mail once it is completed, but it will not impact the production time stated in the listing. Please contact me when you place your order if you would like to request this service.

All domestic Priority Mail and Express Mail comes with a tracking number, which I will send to you in your shipment notification. Because of this tracking number, I have proof of mailing for all boxes that I mail. Domestic items shipped without insurance that do not arrive at the correct address or get lost in the mail are the responsibility of the buyer, however I will work with you to track down packages and claims.

********** INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING ***********
Every order is gift-wrapped and shipped in a rigid mailing box. For international shipping to Canada and the United Kingdom, I ship by USPS First Class International Mail which can take anywhere from 2 to 4 weeks to reach its destination. If your package does not arrive within this window, your shipping fee is not refundable. Insurance is not included in these prices. If you would like your package to be insured, please contact me as soon as you place your order so I can charge you the correct amount . International items shipped without insurance that do not arrive at the correct address or get lost in the mail are the responsibility of the buyer, not Kryzia Kreations.

There are NO TRACKING NUMBERS for First Class International packages. The only number I can send you is your customs number. As of right now, the only country that allows you to track a First Class package is Canada. Otherwise, once your package leaves the U.S, I will not be able to tell you where your package is in transit, or when it will be delivered. If you want to be able to track your package accurately, you will need to upgrade to a fully trackable shipping method, such as Registered Mail, but this will also add 2-3 extra weeks onto your shipping time, or Priority International Mail, which can take 6 days to 2 full weeks to arrive at its destination. Please feel free to inquire about this before you pay for your purchase so that I can give you a shipping cost estimate and add the cost onto your listing(s). If you forget to do this during checkout, you can also contact me before I ship your order, and I can invoice you separately for these charges.

Please be aware that you are responsible for any customs duties, taxes, VAT, brokerage fees, or tariffs levied after the initial US postage. These fees could be applied to your package at the discretion of your local customs officers/post office. I will not mark any packages as a "gift" in order to avoid customs fees. This is not legal. It will be marked as "merchandise" and listed as a "fashion accessory" on the customs form.

If you need your international jewelry order delivered by a quicker method, please contact me about upgrading to Priority Mail Express International.

*********** LOST/DAMAGES PACKAGES ************
My official policy is to wait 10 days from mailing before declaring an insured domestic package lost, and 3-4 full weeks for insured or registered international packages. Items shipped without insurance that do not arrive at the correct address or get lost in the mail are the responsibility of the buyer.

I will work with you to track down packages that you have had sent with a tracking number, but I cannot be held responsible for pieces that are lost in the mail, and are not fully-insured. Please get in touch for an insurance upgrade should you wish full insurance. If your item arrives damaged, I will offer to repair the item.

********** MAILING ADDRESS **************
Please make sure that your mailing address listed with PayPal matches your mailing address listed with Etsy, and they are correct. If they don't match, items will be mailed to your Etsy address by default. No refunds or credits will be given to items lost or not delivered due to shipping to an incorrect Etsy address, or to an address that is non-deliverable.
Refunds and Exchanges
***************** REFUNDS & EXCHANGES ****************:
I want you to be absolutely delighted with whatever piece you order, for many of my pieces, if you don't like it for any reason please return it to me within 7 days of its arrival and I will give you a full refund (minus shipping). Please contact me prior to returning any product so that I know to expect it. All products must be in the same condition as they were sent to you.

Exchanges are available up to 7 days, as long as items are in saleable condition.  After 7 days, no returns are accepted. Postage is not refunded for any returned items. 

Custom orders are not exchangeable or returnable. Custom orders include rings that are custom designed for you with a different style or different stones, and any other jewelry that contains personalized elements or engraving.

*************** REPAIRS ***************
I guarantee my jewelry to be of the highest quality and check over each piece before it is packaged for shipment. If for some reason you receive your jewelry, and upon wearing it out for the first time, it breaks not by any fault of your own, please contact me ASAP., tell me what happened, and ship it back to me. It will be fixed at no charge. If it becomes damaged after normal wear and tear, I will fix it for a small fee covering parts and labor.
Additional policies and FAQs
************** PROCESSING TIMES **************
Most of the items listed in my shop do not take as long as the processing times state, but there are occasions when it does. If you need something sooner than stated in the listing, please feel free to contact me and I will try my best to accommodate you.

************** BRIDAL ORDERS **************
It is an honor to create jewelry for brides and their bridal parties, and I believe in working closely with the bride to get the exact look she desires.  Please be aware that anything custom made will take a bit of extra time to design and create so be sure to plan for that so the jewelry will be ready in time for your wedding date. For custom orders, I do require half (50%) of the payment upfront, and the balance after I complete your order. As soon as the balance is paid, I will ship your order immediately. Custom orders are not returnable or exchangeable.

Frequently asked questions

Custom and personalized orders

I do accept custom orders on many of my jewelry designs. Please contact me if you wish to have a piece custom made for you. For custom orders, I require half (50%) of the payment upfront, and the balance after I complete your order. As soon as the balance is paid, I will ship your item immediately. Custom orders are not returnable or exchangeable.

Sizing details

Please be sure you have the correct ring size prior to purchasing a ring. For some rings, it may be impossible to re-size due to various factors such as stones, the stone settings, and sometimes the design of the ring itself. In this case, a new ring will have to be re-fabricated, and I do charge for this. Most jewelers will size your finger for free, however, I will be more than happy to send you a ring sizer in the mail at no charge. If re-sizing of a ring is required, please contact me and we can discuss the rates.

Wholesale availability

Wholesale inquiries are welcome. As of right now, I am not part of Etsy Wholesale, so please feel free to contact me if you are interested and I will send you the appropriate information.

I include a jewelry care card in every order, but the best thing to to use to clean your jewelry is a treated jeweler's polishing cloth.
