Who is KritTeekDeZigns???

Our Story 

As an African American woman, who wore natural hairstyles, finding jewelry to accessorize my natural and rustic imperfect taste was far and in between.  And what better material to represent this theme was wood with its many flaws and imperfections and yet beautiful in its own rights. So mPERFEKtion Designs by CritTique was born out of a desire to show that its okay to be different and have flaws, featuring woodbased earrings. 

Five years later CritTiqueDesigns is still redefining and evolving, reclaiming narratives, and representing.  With patience, creativity and perseverance this business has undergone several changes as it matured including the names and logos. Those names include mPERFEKtion Designs by CritTique, CritTiqueDesigns, and now KritTeekDeZigns. Expansion of its line to include woodbased necklaces, bracelets, rings, keychains, mugs, art prints and handbags and now free standing wood letters.

KritTeekDeZigns Products
Each wood piece, is designed, handcut, using a scroll saw, and finished in house by Crittie Gay.  From its natural rustic origination stage to the final endpiece that is either stained, woodburned, handpainted, or a combination of all, KritTeekDeZigns creations are to serve and celebrate you. Art prints are computerized art created by yours truly, Crittie Gay and mugs are designed and sublimated inhouse.

Our Mission:
We want to help each individual, especially women, feel like their best selves as they take on the world, flaws and all, to feel complete accessorizing their afros, cornrows, braids, bantus, plaits, all natural hairdos, with a piece of jewelry from KritTeekDeZigns, that is on the cutting edge of fashion.

KritTeekDeZigns motto "is not trying to be perfect, just consistent".

 God bless!!!

Additional policies and FAQs

When photographing artwork, there is always a tendency to experience color loss from the original piece. I would also like to note that when working with wood, there are no two pieces alike or the exact same size, and there are always visual knots (dark spots), etc. ranging from small to large. So if you see a flaw(s), don't be surprised, this is what gives each piece its unique look. Therefore, if you have any questions at all about a piece of jewelry or any of my designs, or would like to see additional images, don’t hesitate to contact me. In addition, before ordering, be sure to check out the "measurements" in the description section to make sure the designed piece is not too large or small for your need. Thanking you in advance for your patronage.
