Hello! I am Crystal. The artist and designer behind Crystal Lea Jewelry!
Welcome to my little space on the web!
I’m a jewelry artist who designs and hand fabricates all of my work using fine silver, sterling silver, 14k gold filled, and genuine gems and all of jewelry is created in my home studio in Nebraska.
My passion for jewelry making first started over 10 years ago as a little pass time for me while my twins would nap. My love for creating jewelry, and the grateful feeling I would get each time someone purchased a piece that I had made, continued to push me to grow and to learn. I taught myself to do wire wrapped jewelry, stamped jewelry, PMC clay, and soon stepped in to the world metalsmithing. Fabricating, soldering, setting stones, casting and hand-forging all of my jewelry. Making me super proud to say I am a self-taught jewelry artist.
My inspiration depends on the day, some designs happen simply from sitting at my bench and letting the materials talk, while other transpire from one of my sketches. Creating with passion and attention to detail, striving for well-made comfortable designs that are elegant and simple yet stunning, perfect for any occasion or every day wear.
Handcrafted jewelry designed to be treasured.
Now being blessed to do this as my full time job, I get to travel around the mid-west doing art shows and of course, selling. Allowing me the ability to meet so many wonderful people and share my love of jewelry design all along the way!
I understand that there are so many talented artists on out there, so I always feel truly grateful when someone chooses a piece I created! Thanks for stopping by to take a peek and learning a little about me!
