About

Talismanic adornments, made from nature to nourish your soul <3

Hello and welcome to Chrysalism! Thanks so much for stopping by and taking the time to learn about us and our art!

Chrysalism began in 2011, after my father passed away unexpectedly. In the aftermath, I found myself needing a sanctuary to process my feelings. Creativity is a wonderful healer, and I found solace in my art. A seamstress and artist since childhood, I had dreamed of making jewelry for years, so with my modest inheritance I paid my rent for the year, collected a few supplies, and set up a folding work table in the corner of my kitchen.

At first, making jewelry was just therapy for me, a way to let go and be a part of the universal flow. I planned to return to my old job waiting tables and create jewelry part time. Soon, it became clear that my designs were resonating with people, and I realized I could devote myself fully to my craft. It was unexpected, empowering, and a little scary- I had never even considered running my own business full time! But through my creative process, I found myself transforming and growing more fulfilled- I could feel this is what I was meant for!

The name Chrysalism arose from that feeling of generating a nourishing space (a chrysalis!) in which to creatively transform my life, and from the hope that my art may offer others space to transform themselves through their own creative self-expression.

Each design I create emerges from my desire to send sparks of beauty out into the world where they can inspire and empower you to be your truest self, unique and radiant!

I use only natural materials (crystals, stones, wood, feathers, leather, shells) and raw / basic metals (brass, copper, silver), never any synthetic chemical- or petroleum-based materials. I believe in the healing energy of these gifts from the earth and treat every piece with reverence and love. My partner and I spend time with each piece of jewelry we send out, taking time to clear accumulated energies with intuitive rituals utilizing sunlight, moonlight, Palo Santo smoke, sea salt, sage, essential oils, music/song, meditation/intention, or anything we feel the situation calls for.

In 2014, my love and life partner, Brandon, joined me on this creative journey. He is a tremendous help with some of the analytical aspects of running a business that my messy artist brain isn’t so good with! The two of us now dedicate 6 days a week to working in our new studio in the heart of Boulder's arts district (no more kitchen table!). It is hard work sometimes, but so rewarding!

Most recently, we visited the 2015 and 2016 Tucson and Denver Gem and Mineral Shows, and were completely overwhelmed by the amazing gifts the earth has for us! We returned home with a heap of new supplies and a renewed inspiration to create! We are taking the first steps toward learning lapidary work and stone polishing / drilling techniques, so in the future we can incorporate an even wider variety of crystals and stones into our work. This spring, we will be starting metal-smithing classes so we can expand our skillset and explore new creative territory.

We are so grateful that you’ve decided to stop by our shop and read about our journey! Please feel free to message us with any questions or requests you might have!

Blessings, Love, and Light,
Mylia and Brandon
