Nice to meet you, my name is Anastasia. I'm the person behind the KRISTALA brand and self-taught artisan jewelry designer. I make beaded jewelry and unique artisan components. A variety of my creations were gifted to celebrities and participated in several red carpet celebrity gifting events honoring Oscars, Golden Globes, and Costume Designers Guild Awards. One of my necklaces was seen on the TV Show Riverdale. You can browse the whole Celebrity Gifting collection on this website.
How is KRISTALA jewelry made?
My collection of jewelry and accessories is carefully handmade by me in my home-based studio. Designs feature a variety of styles from contemporary, minimalist to spiritual, rustic, nature-themed.
Everything is made out of high-quality gemstones, Japanese and Czech glass beads with the occasional inclusion of metals, polymer clay, and other glass beads.
Inspiration for most of my work usually comes when I travel. I draw my ideas while immersing in the places I visit. I love nature and animals and try to incorporate elements of our beautiful world in each design. You can see elements of nature in many pieces - flowers, dragonflies, fern leaves, etc. I also love gazing at modern architecture and browsing high-fashion runway shows and luxury interiors worldwide - all this together fuels my creativity. I try to travel as much as I can between creative projects so I do not experience prolonged artist's block.
What does KRISTALA mean?
It is my last name and it translates as "crystals".
KRISTALA supports environmental charities and donates a portion of all sales to Sierra Club and Ocean Conservancy.
Welcome to my World.
