Jewelry Designer Turns China Into Cool Wearable Art
Kryzia Kreations, studio of jewelry designer, Christina Paluszek, is now turning broken china pieces into unique keepsake necklaces and bracelets.
By: Christina Paluszek / Kryzia Kreations
Historically, Kryzia Kreations, has created beautiful, whimsical jewelry fashioned mainly from sterling silver combined with various semi-precious gemstones, freshwater pearls, Swarovski Austrian crystals, and 14kt gold-filled, 14kt gold and 24kt gold accents. The addition of pieces of china as the jewelry’s main focal point, instead of a gemstone, creates a modern design with a slightly antique feel. The necklace or bracelet not only becomes a conversation piece, but more importantly a sentimental treasure that can be worn for years, and then passed down to the next generation - following in the footsteps of most family china. And as an added benefit, it is a great way to recycle!
Christina Paluszek scours flea markets, thrift stores and estate sales to find the various china plates and cups that she uses in her designs. Pre-made china jewelry designs are for sale on her website in the “Heirloom Collection” at http://www.kryziakreations.com, however custom orders are highly encouraged. For Christina Paluszek, it is a great compliment to work directly with a client and turn a cherished piece of family china into a wearable keepsake that can also be passed down through generations to come.
Kryzia Kreations was founded in 1999 by self-taught jewelry designer, Christina Paluszek. Her designs are sold at various high-end art shows around the country and on her website at http://www.kryziakreations.com. For more information or photos, please contact Christina Paluszek at kryziakreations@
