Christy Robinson is a native Texan and currently resides in Dallas where she works as a full time studio jewelry artist. She has worked with two local contemporary jewelers and has taken jewelry intensives at The Craft Guild of Dallas in casting and etching techniques.
Her current body of work, which features jewelry designs that use earth friendly recycled metals such as aluminum, copper,sterling silver often deal with human, animal, and environmental issues.
Having always loved creating, she became completely addicted to jewelry making in 1993 and it has become almost her sole form of creative expression.
In 1996, she became an animal rights advocate after watching an undercover video on slaughterhouses. A huge animal lover, having grown up with cows, pigs,chickens, as well as kitties and dogs she instantly went Vegetarian then Vegan and immediately got involved with the local animal advocacy community.
In 2006 she combined her interests (jewelry making,animal rights,environment) and started her online shop via her website.
Christy enjoys having her work seen as something beautiful and seemingly material but on closer inspection having it be thought provoking with a slight edge of humor. She currently gives a portion of her proceeds to various earth, animal, or people friendly charities.
