Welcome to the Krystle Kollection. My name is Krystle Koontz. I created the Krystle Kollection in early 2016 after receiving a jewelry making starter kit from my mom with encouragement to find “something for myself”. With that excellent and much needed advice, I spent most of my free time immersed in learning jewelry design, focusing on details that mattered to myself and the beautiful women in my life such as sizing, affordability and material quality. Excited about my newfound passion and creative outlet, I began sharing my pieces at local farmers markets, home parties and community events. Next thing I knew the word was out and I was leaving my corporate job to pursue a career in jewelry design. Crazy right? Oh I know, and am told all the time. However, that doesn’t stop me from pursuing and living my dream.
