Meet the Maker

MEET THE MAKER~
I am a native Texan and currently live in Hubbard which is small Texas town (population 1423),it is a town that was founded in 1895 and became known for it's healing mineral springs! Hubbard is located just outside of Waco and is 2 hours from Austin! In and effort to be even more sustainable and climate friendly my current Jewelry studio is located in a tiny solar powered off-grid shipping container that we call the Evergreen(see Evergreen Studio for more info.)

I have loved creating since childhood, I especially love jewelry making because of the variety of techniques I never get bored. I started making jewelry in my early twenties and have worked in the past with two Dallas based contemporary jewelers and have taken jewelry intensives at The Craft Guild of Dallas and the Creative Art Center also in Dallas and learned a variety of jewelry techniques which I now use to make my jewelry. I use hand sawing, hand stamping, casting, metal clay/kiln firing, enameling, etching, stone setting, beading, metal fabrication & soldering techniques to create my jewelry often using more than one technique per piece. I use recycled metals American Mined and ethically sourced gemstones.

I design and make every item in my shop. I hand stamp,solder, set stones and pack up every order with care and with A LOT of help and support from my amazing husband Kyle and Laika our rescue Schnauzer mix who always keeps me laughing!


MY MISSION~
In 2007 I combined my interests,jewelry making,animal rights,veganism,environmental issues,Human rights, feminism etc. by starting my online shop via my primary website www.christyrobinsondesign.com and my Etsy Shop. In both I strive to offer affordable, well made,sustainable jewelry in recycled metals that is both earth and animal (vegan)friendly and also promotes & encourages a dialogue for the wearer about the causes that I and they may feel strongly about.

Being an ethical Vegan for over 20 years ,I do not use any animal products such as feathers, leather, bones, coral, shells,beeswax, pearls, etc. This also includes jewelry making items such as rawhide mallets,leather sandbags, glue and I also use only vegan ink on my hand stamped pieces!

In an effort to encourage zero-waste living my packaging is meant to be reused or repurposed including muslin jewelry bags,paper gift boxes, etc. Your mailing envelope is by Ecoenclose and is 100% recycled paper with algae ink ,is plastic-free and can be composted or recycled with mixed used paper products. My office paper is 100% post consumer recycled paper and I try to keep packing items too a very minimum and I do not include packing receipts unless requested to do so.

MY VISION~
I currently give a portion of my proceeds to various earth, animal, or people friendly charities. Check out my Giving page on my Website www.christyrobinsondesign.com, if you are interested in learning about my Giving and Fundraiser Donation Jewelry and also my Jewelry Collections which are my Art Jewelry projects that raise funds for various causes.

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders

CUSTOMIZATION OF DESIGNS:

I am always happy to customize designs that are featured on my Etsy Shop in the sizes and designs shown with different words or phrases. Please feel free to send me a convo or leave me note in the "Message to Seller" area per your customization request at checkout. You can also choose different chain length options in standard lengths 16, 18, or 20 inch lengths, just leave me a request also at checkout.

Care instructions

ALLERGIES AND TARNISH:
Recycled aluminum is very hypo-allergenic and also is very tarnish resistant ... meaning it does not turn black like sterling silver or copper does so there is a lot less maintenance.

While both Recycled Sterling silver,Brass, and Copper tarnish they can be cleaned up with a jewelry polishing cloth.
Jewelry Polishing cloth can be purchased here: https://www.etsy.com/listing/17969991/jewelry-polishing-cloth?ref=shop_home_active_1

Gift wrapping and packaging

PACKAGING: In an effort to produce less waste/be zero waste your order will come with minimal packaging.

Your jewelry item will come in a cloth drawstring bag that is for you to keep & store your jewelry item in when you're not wearing it! Your order will also come with a recycled paper care instruction card...NO PLASTIC is included with your order! The mailing envelopes I use are 100% recycled paper with recycled paper padding & can be recycled (or composted) with your mixed use recyclables.

It will be wrapped in 100% recycled tissue paper to keep secure during the mailing process.

PAPER:
All our business cards,recipe cards or office paper used for any print outs that may be included in your order are 100% recycled paper.
