Announcement   Simple earrings, everyday necklaces, minimalist jewelry, celebrity inspired pieces, casual earrings, crystal earrings, swarovski rivoli earrings, fresh water pearl jewelry, wire wrapped necklaces - you will find all that and much more in my shop.
I don’t like to limit myself to just one style, one technique, one type of design or one kind of material but I rather love to explore many different looks, styles and options that jewelry design can actually be about if you open your mind to it. That’s a reason why you will see a variety of materials, designs, technique and styles in my shop. As you can see in many of my pieces, I love color, sparkles and items that are really original.
You will find some vintage inspired pieces, modern contemporary style, minimalist jewelry, simple jewelry casual enough for every day, simple but rich pieces that can be worn at special occasions, like wedding or any other event when you want to look and feel your best. What I love about jewelry is that it is something that can be worn when finished, unlike other forms of art.
I enjoy working with many different materials like crystals, fresh water pearls, semi-precious beads and stones, precious metals like silver and gold, leather, cotton cord, glass beads and base metals. I really love to work with Swarovski crystal, especially with “Rivolis”, and you will find many pieces where I used them and was inspired by them. They come in great variety of gorgeous colors and are absolutely stunning and perfectly made – I think that’s the reason I enjoy to work with them so much.
I believe that I have by now established my own personal "look" that is unique and that you will not find anywhere else. My goal as a jewelry designer is to offer you high quality jewelry that will brighten your day and make it more enjoyable when you wear my pieces.
Lots of thought and attention to detail goes into every single piece I make. I would like the person wearing my jewelry to feel the care that I put into it. I hope that my pieces will make you feel special, unique and put a smile on your face. Most of all, wearing my jewelry should lift your spirit and brighten your soul.
I hope you can find something special in my shop that has your name on it and that you will love wearing.

About

Unique Handmade Jewelry from Crystal Glow Design

Originally from Czech Republic I have been drawn to all things creative from my early childhood. I have always loved to make things using my hands and my creative mind - I sewed doll clothes, knitted sweaters, painted, and pursued art photography. I loved trying different techniques, using various media for my art projects and working with all kinds of materials like metals, leather, paints and fabrics.
Creating things and objects always made me happy, relaxed and fully immersed in the creative process. It was an escape from everyday mundane life.
Later in my teens I attended an art school of design and worked for several years as a fabric pattern designer in my hometown.
After I came to U.S. in 1986 I started to work for small coin dealer company where I still work to this day. I had many jobs and positions there over the past 28 years, including shipping clark, desktop publisher, graphic designer and coin photographer, but it never fully satisfied my desire to create something using my hands, my creative ideas and the need to make something beautiful, unique and functional.
The only creative venue that I was able to pursue at the time was photography. Later, I started to study art and design at El Camino College but after couple of years it became clear to me that full time job and attending school at the same time is too much to handle.
In 1994 I got inspired by a friend who started to create and sell beautiful wire wrapped necklaces and earrings. I tried to make similar jewelry items using mostly Swarovski Crystals, sterling silver wire, pearls and semi-precious gemstones. I really did not know anything about making jewelry at that time but I managed to make some decent looking pieces and sell my items at the Crafter’s Guild in Torrance for a period of time.

Finally in summer 2009 I started to frequently visit “Soothe Your Soul” – esoteric store in Redondo Beach where I met lot of creative people and was able to learn some basics of jewelry making and design. The store also had enormous stock of semi-precious beads, Swarovski crystals, fresh water pearls and jewelry findings. I got inspired just by looking at all the beautiful beads.
Someone in the store taught me how make knotted pearl necklace and since that day I got hooked. I started to make nice jewelry pieces for my friends and family, and later that year I found the Etsy website quite by accident. I realized right away that it would be a perfect opportunity for me to really put my pieces “out there” and see what happens.
It took lot of hard work, experimenting, endless hours of taking pictures, many hours at the computer to get where my Etsy shop is today. It’s still “work in progress” to this day.
I am so grateful that I can be part of this vast Etsy community of artists from around the world because designing and creating jewelry is the most relaxing, satisfying and rewarding process that I know.
I just hope that people will find as much joy wearing my jewelry as I enjoy making it.

Welcome to my Etsy Shop!
I always loved to create things, make things using my hands. I alway had creative mind and making jewelry is a perfect oulet for my creativity.
My favorite materials besides the semi-precious gemstones are Swarovski crystals, pearls (glass and freshwater), glass beads, high quality crystal glass beads, sterling silver and silver-filled findings, antique copper and antique brass findings.
Besides that anything else that works and looks great. I try to use high quality materials but if I cannot find something in certain material I would use a base metal component as long as it looks good. I will tell you so in the description. Sometimes I use less expensive materials to make the piece more affordable.
I love to experiment with different colors, textures and stones/beads to create unique and unusual combinations. I love to try new materials and see if they are going to work and if I can create something that will look great.
All my pieces are unique and I very seldom make same design twice. It can be done upon request providing I still have the same materials used for the original piece.

I will be adding new pieces regularly so please come back soon.

Enjoy my virtual shop and convo me if you have any requests or questions!
