Hello, my name is Khrystyna and I'm the designer/maker behind Ruby Robin. My handcrafted jewellery is designed to allow the quiet beauty of nature to shine, to stir the imagination, inspire wonder in small things and encapsulate a microcosm of forgotten memories. I make my jewellery using a range of strange and beautiful curiosities, found in the woods and on the mountain sides, combed from the windswept beaches and picked in the wild meadows.
Each piece I make, is infused with it's own story, inspired by the quiet beauty of the nature and our relationship with the wild world around us. I strive to inspire a sense of childhood wonder in the wearer, taking you back to that feeling of excitement you had as a child when you found a fragment of a speckled blue robins egg in Spring, a perfectly formed seashell on a windswept beach or some other small marvellous thing from nature.
I create wearable keepsakes, microcosms of memories that can be kept close to our hearts and worn where ever life takes us. I hope that in wearing my jewellery you can share in that sense of wonder, find a moment of comfort in an ever accelerating world and express a facet of your self with a keepsake that fits, truly and perfectly with you. In the words of Ralph Emerson, 'nature always wears the colours of the spirit.'
Over the last few years I have been so lucky to be able to run this little business as a full time job, and now, my partner of 10 years has been able to come on board full time too! I owe you all so much gratitude for enabling us to support our little family with our work.
