Crista Dixon

Crista DixonAfter being trapped in a corporate body for over 30 years, Crista has finally escaped to pursue her loves of jewelry, fashion and vintage accessories. Two years ago she introduced her one-of-kind “glam” bracelets that can be worn with casual, business and evening attire. Pieces incorporate gems and precious stones or vintage findings (buttons, cabochons, crystals, jewelry components, cameos) encased in sterling silver box clasps. These clasps are surrounded by gems and precious stones, glass, crystal, vintage and ethnic beads. Last year she introduced her collection of one-of-kind necklaces featuring vintage findings, gems and precious stones, artisan pottery, glass and Thai silver focal pieces. She also makes custom earrings to go with these creations. Her jewelry is both hip and fun with an eye toward vintage and natural materials. Having travelled the world in a corporate job, she admired and purchased jewelry for herself and others while on these trips.
Crista’s lifelong love of jewelry inspired her to begin making her own jewelry. Trips abroad (Paris, Germany, England, China) allowed her to purchase many of the vintage findings she uses in her jewelry. A recent trip to Prague yielded some fabulous vintage pressed glass cabs and crystals. She also just found some amazing art deco dress clips at an estate sale that she has made into necklaces.
She loves to see her jewelry enjoyed by the 18 to 80 set. Her jewelry company, Queen Lily’s Jewels, is named after her beloved 12 year old beagle. Queen Lily is often found in her studio taking a snooze or searching for cookies. Her work can be found in numerous galleries and boutiques in Northern and Southern California. She also participates in juried Studio Tours and Art Shows.
