I make alternative, bespoke bouquets, buttonholes, jewellery & accessories using wire, Swarovski crystals, semi-precious stones and tiny handcrafted sculptures in silver, copper and bronze.

Often, I'm introduced as my business name and that's great, because I am Claire R. Zwozny-Bestwick!

I have a wish to spend all my time creating special things that make other people happy, only you have the power to make this happen!

Making our world happy is also really important, so when creating CRZyBest creations I always try my best to look after our planet too, which is why I always make every effort to source my energy, tools and materials from sustainable and ethical sources.

I am a creator of unique handcrafted jewellery, accessories and alternative bespoke wedding bouquets using a variety of Swarovski crystals, semi-precious stones and most importantly tiny handcrafted, kiln fired precious metal sculptures; this means you can have pretty much anything you want included into your CRZyBest creation!

Having specialised in 3-dimensional design, silversmithing and jewellery for my first degree, I enjoyed teaching Art, Craft and Design for 20 years and in 2015 graduated with a master’s degree. Ready for a change in direction, I seized opportunity, officially launching CRZyBest in 2017.

Combining a whole heap of my skills presented an immediate unique selling point. Incorporating unique, tiny, handcrafted, kiln fired sculptures into bespoke jewellery is a growing favourite in my shop and a great example of what I can do best... CRZyBest!

Last minute unique gifts? I also create ready to buy jewellery and accessories available through my website www.crzybest.co.uk or directly from me. I showcase at a variety of events and there is also a growing number of CRZyBest stockists, so keep your eyes peeled for my creations!

Remember too, that if you don’t see exactly what you’d like, please get in touch because I’m always up for developing ideas!
