Dulaney: Delivering Crystal Creations

Shellyann Dulaney started making jewelry after a relative gave her a Swarovski crystal birthstone bracelet two years ago. For those who aren’t familiar with Swarovski, it’s an Austrian company that produces crystal cut creations and crystal components for jewelry making and crafting.

After performing some research, she launched Shellyann’s Crystal Creations. “I fell in love with the unbelievable beauty of the Swarovski crystals and haven’t been able to stop creating,” Shellyann said.

This Colliers, WV resident designs and creates from her home, where she turned a spare room into her at-home jewelry making business yet admits that jewelry can be found throughout her house.

During the day, Ms. Dulaney works as a rural postal carrier, then spends most of her free time as a jeweler. She only uses Swarovski crystals and the highest quality settings. Her handmade jewelry line includes bracelets (tennis and bangle), earrings, pendants, and rings. Each is unique and can be adjusted to different sizes. The smaller rings and stud earrings are perfect for children.

Her work comes in a wide variety of colors, styles, designs, prices and seasonal themes, including spring, fall, and Christmas. Some can be worn year-round. Others incorporate a cross or feature sports teams—both professional and collegiate.

Although Ms. Dulaney has her favorite colors and styles, this designer and creator engages her friends for ideas. Satisfied customers rave about her handmade jewelry. Very pretty, simply beautiful, and gorgeous are just a few comments.

In addition to her current collection of approximately 300 jewelry items, Shellyann accepts special orders. She takes great pride in creating the perfect jewelry for each special order: “If you don’t see something that catches your eye, just ask me and I will do what I can to create it for you.”

She frequently adds to her inventory, especially prior to craft shows. When she travels to weekend events, she brings her tools and crystals. Shellyann enjoys the hands-on experience of meeting people and creating customized pieces right on the spot for them. That’s where she finds out what people are looking for.

This is her second year at Shaker Woods. She said, “This show is my favorite--from the other crafters to the owner of the show. Everyone makes you feel right at home, like one big family of crafters.

You can see Shellyann’s creations on Etsy, Facebook and in stores, but you won’t want to miss this passionate artist in action. In most instances, orders placed at Shaker Woods will be ready before you leave.
