Christine Keller, Chrizart Creations Jewelry
Chrizart Creations is Christine Keller, a jewelry-maker from Buckhannon, West Virginia. Christine strives to create
one-of-a-kind pieces of unique design and color, appealing to women of all ages, with an inclination toward whimsical, fun, and edgier pieces that make a bold statement.
Having been creative from a young age, it wasn’t until 2008 that she started experimenting with the creation of Jewelry. She took up pottery, which lead to experiments with jewel-like cabochons of clay and melted glass. Having a lifelong love of jewelry, she began wire wrapping in 2009 as a medium for incorporating the cabochons into pendants.
She has since evolved into silversmithing, enameling, an copper forging using the metals of silver, copper, brass and aluminum in her work.
In addition to her handmade elements, Chrizart jewelry may include semi-precious stones, crystals, Czech glass, beads, re-purposed materials, and other accouterments.
Proud to be an Appalachian artist, it is the life on top of a West Virginia mountain with her husband Warren and a wonderful dog that inspires Christine’s creative spirit. It is the beauty which surrounds her, the love of friends and family (10 grandkids) and the time to create anew which sustains her.
